Family Pictures. They are so stressful, right?! Ever since Jackson was born, Scott and I have made it a goal to take family photos at least once a year. I love having photos taken often to see how much our children have grown. This year I tried my best to make the entire evening a positive experience instead of a stressful event for everyone. I bought and planned out our outfits early and then laid everything out a few days before. I also had a better mindset going in to it. I’ve come to the conclusion that a photo with everyone looking AND smiling is rather difficult. I’m okay with photos that are a little more candid. London cried a lot again this year and honestly the pics of her crying are some of my favorites! They show her personality and what life is like for her right now. It also helps relieve stress when you book an awesome photographer. For the last two years, we have used Travis Richardson and he has done an AMAZING job! I was so impressed with what he was able to capture when our kids weren’t always willing participants. I love my little family so much and I’m so grateful I have these photos to always remember what my kids are like right now with their fun and quirky personalities during this busy season of life.
