Since Benjamin was born in 2009, we haven’t had any photographs taken of our whole family by a real photographer. Last week, my friend Lauren of Simply Inspired Mama took some photos for us and I’m completely in love with them and can’t wait to share my favorites with you!
For a split second, I thought about buying a new dress for our pics. Then I remembered that I hate shopping. I also wanted our pictures to look like us. So, we just wore basically what we wear everyday. I wore my favorite t-shirt and jeans. It’s not glamorous, but it’s me.
We went out to a pretty field in the late afternoon. Lauren had the brilliant idea that we should bring favorite books with us.
I usually hate getting pictures taken, but we had a lot of fun.
I love this one of my two sweetie pies. Daniel’s mom gave Benjamin this shirt and it’s my very favorite. My mom gave me this dress for Lucy before she was born and it’s my favorite thing to dress her in.
I borrowed this quilt from my mom. It was made by her grandmother. I remember cuddling up with it and reading by the fireplace when I was a little girl.
Benjamin is such a nut. He looks like he’s concocting a plan full of mischief.
Love! Books! Quilts! Babies!
Now get ready….
Funniest picture ever. I die every time I think about this. This right here, folks. This is our life. My wild son and my sweet concerned daughter.
Yup. This is our family Fall of 2012. Benjamin is hilarious even in picture form. I’m so grateful that I get to spend each day with these folks. What an adventure.
