Family Photos

A few months ago, our neighbor who is a photographer braved the heat and humidity with us alongside thousands of flying gnats that were in a nearby field. It was truly a miserable evening to be outside, let alone expect cooperation for family photos.

Somehow we still managed to walk away with the shots that were important to us.

And a few crazy ones too.

I have photos hanging in our bedroom with each of my babies and me. It was important that I captured Finn's babyhood in the same way. 

It's a good thing Finn looks younger than he is because I didn't manage to fit in our photo session until he was two days shy of turning one.

Aside from the family Christmas card photo and a shot with my baby and me, my only other request was for individuals of each boy. Their faces now hang larger than life on four square canvases in our stairwell.

Oh, and I had to take a silly headshot too for work. I remembered why I prefer being on the other side of the camera.

Family photos can be really stressful, especially when you have extreme weather conditions and young children involved. But in my book, they are always, always worth it.
