It's been six years...

Yes, count them. 1,2,3,4,5,6 years since the last time we had "Family Pictures" taken. We finally decided it was time I realized that "just 10 more pounds" wasn't gonna happen and who better to do it than a sweet friend from church who is starting up her photography business. She's pretty great and talented, don't ya think?:) Go to Kivett Photography to see more of her work and if you live in our neck of the woods or will be visiting, she comes highly recommended by us!!














So we got our act together enough to get them taken. Now I just need to make some decisions. Which prints, which size.... And any one who knows me well, will know that this will not be a simple, quick, or easy task.

Let's just hope it doesn't take me 6 years.

Which ones were your favorites??

Cause I just might steal your answers.

These are all SOOOO good!!!

I love the one of you and E together and the one of all of you sitting in the leaves...

We've NEVER had an entire family photog session! It's TIME and now I really want to after seeing these!

Kellie said...

oohh!!! they are all so good! But of all y'all, my fave is the third.

Of individuals....its way to hard to pick!

You don't know me, I found you through the Acker's blog but wanted to let you know, your photos are beautiful, your friend really did an amazing job, and you have a beautiful family. My suggestion, go for a closer shot of your family, they tend to be more eye-catching and meaningful even if they seem less artsy. Or just print them all! ;op

Um, they are all so good! those are AWESOME! What a beautiful family you have! I don't know how you are going to decide which ones! So yes pick them all!

Summer said...

I was wondering if you had had pictures taken. They are SO GOOD! I was admiring how well you assembled your family outfits to coordinate so well... I know you put a lot of thought into it... Good Job!
I LOVE the one of you guys against the brick wall but as far as a good family portrait I'd have to say the one of you sitting in the leaves. The one of you and Emma is REALLY good too! And of the you and the boys... Okay... I can see this is going to be a hard decision. Because each individual picture of the kids is really good too. Splurge and get them all!

Great pics! I really like the one of the three kids sitting, lined up!

Carpool Queen said...

Can I steal your daughter? Please?

Jenny said...

I could stare at these all day...

Pick them all. For real. Ask for the ones you can't afford for Christmas.

Still staring...

Kate said...

Love all your pics! You and your family are beautiful! Saw the jumping pics! they are awesome!

Wendy said...

I like the third with the family in the leaves - nice smiles. Your friend did a great job on these.

I am told that I do not have an accurate email address for you, and that you are not receiving our updates. Help?

Gretchen said...

You have an adorable family, and she did an amazing job. Wow. I love every single one of them. Do get one of you and B together. It's so nice to have an updated one of you and your spouse. As for the others...good luck. ;)

BTW, we just had our picture made this year, too. Not as faincy as you all, but still. It's been 6 years for us, too. I'm sure the kids haven't changed much since kindergarted and 2nd grade. We do what we can, no?

Love them ALL, but numbers 3, 4, 10 and 11 are my favorites. What 10 pounds? You look FABULOUS. Miss seeing your lovely faces in person!
