You may remember in my last post when I said I was going to drag my family to our neighborhood trails to finally get family photos.
Well, I did it!
Saturday evening, I decided that after church on Sunday, we would get some family photos. I knew my married daughter, Cheyenne, was coming over for dinner, so all 10 kids would be present. In addition, the kids would be presentable since they would have their church clothes on already. A two for one deal. ; )
So after naps, we took our brood to the trails and did our best to get photos. Can you believe it was 80 degrees on Sunday, and that we actually got eaten up by mosquitoes? Crazy!
While there isn't a single photo where every kid is looking at the camera, or someone isn't sporting a goofy face or squinty eyes, I love them all! And I'm so glad we just went out there did it. I know that in the years to come, I will look back at these and laugh at those sweet goofy faces, and wonder where the years have gone! And I will be so thankful we took the time to do it. And that makes this photo shoot a success...goofy grins and all! I hope in the near future we can get professional photos done again, but until then, I will treasure these!
I posted one photo from each set. Here they are!
The bench shot
The bridge shot
Another on the bridge
The newlyweds....Cheyenne and Nathan
My beautiful 17 year old.....Celeste
The leafy path shot
The pond shot....what? You see no pond?
Yeah, so I posed everyone next to the pond (which is to the left). This was our last set before calling it a day. Everyone was hot and cranky, so when I realized the pond wasn't actually in the shot, I just went with it. Otherwise, everyone would have thrown rocks at me if I dared re-pose them AGAIN!
