"It's the most wonderful Tiiiiiiiiime, Of The Year!"
Are you like me and look forward to having your family photos taken, even though you know they are not going to go as planned and will most likely not match the dream image you have in your mind? I usually take our photos myself every year simply because committing to a scheduled session is not in our family's DNA. We barely remember to make it to our Dr's appointments even after they call the day before to remind us. For some reason though, I get excited about this time as I seem to think it will be an experience filled with sugar plums and rainbows with everyone in the best mood and on their best behavior! 9 times out of 10, it usually ends up with someone crying because they have to sit still for longer than a second or someone not in favor of the outfits I have picked out or someone running around like a chicken with her head cut off because she knows she only has a short amount of time before chaos starts to rain down. With that said, no matter how our family photo experience goes, I treasure these moments together and I find it amazing how every year our photos always seem to beautifully reflect this perfectly imperfect moment in time that I our family will cherish forever!
Here are a few that I was able to capture before the kiddos went wild in the woods! I'm still trying to decide on which one we want to use for our Christmas Card so Stay Tuned!!
