Family Photo Shoot

We haven't had professional family photos taken since Brenson was born. He's only a year old, so we're not too far overdue, but I definitely wanted to get it done and capture the children at the ages they are now. So, back on the first weekend in April, I scheduled a session with a photographer that Chris and I went to high school with. 

Unfortunately, the day we chose turned out to be super windy and a bit chilly. Neither of the children we cooperating, and although I love the "real life" moments that were captured, I was a little frustrated with the way the children acted. Oh well. That's life with littles :-).

It was a rough morning, but I'm still glad to have these photos! Even now, Brenson looks so young in these to me. It's amazing how quickly they change.

Oh, and my sister made the personalized shirts. Isn't she talented? You can find her shop on FB here if you need to order something!

I LOVVVVVE the colors!!!! Great job on all the coordination!!!! I know that feeling of being annoyed with behavior and having these expectations of these super adorable pinterest worthy picture moments and then being disappointed but from an "outsider" perspective (since duh I wasn't at the shoot!) you REALLY can't tell they were upset and the images are amazing!

Love the outfit color selection in the pics of the four of you! Can't believe how much Bren has changed/grown since April.
