It's been a little over two years since we had family photos taken. I know it's silly but I told Mike after Autumn was born that it was really important to me that we have family pictures because we didn't really have them when I was a kid. Here's one that my dad took before my brother was born:
Dawwww, weren't we all so cute. Anyway, we were hoping that we'd be able to do another family session with our friend/family photographer Elizabeth when we adopted but, well, it's been two years and I didn't want to wait any more. She had some fall mini sessions available and I grabbed a slot. Mike was surprisingly chill about it. I suspect he likes having cute pictures of us, too. :) Like this one...
I think that's going to be our Christmas card (I am, incidentally, completely out of ideas for our christmas card). This one is a possibility, too.
Here's the thing that's amazing about this session. We got soooo many great photos in just 20 minutes!! We got Autumn with and without her beret. Lainey, of course, provided this adorable outfit. Mike and I coordinated our clothes around her. We're so silly but it's fun.
I think this one really gets Autumn's fun personality. Like her giant bracelet? That was all her. She also spent a lot of time collect the pieces of grass you see in all of her photos. Autumn's tongue cracks me up. She did the same thing in our last set of pictures.
I like this one, too.
Mike and I came out pretty well in this session, I think. I'm definitely going to have to get one of these framed.
Over the years:
