Phew, It was a long time coming but we finally had our family photos updated! Ava joined us in 2014 and we haven’t had one professional family photo taken since we made our pregnancy announcement.
My friend, Ashley, was in town from Southern California and I coerced her into taking our family photos. I also promised her an early bed time and chain-store, personalized pizza for dinner. I mean, you can’t say no to that!
So, at last, just a mere 14-months after Ava made us a family of five we have pictures to add to that gallery wall I’ll finish one day. Here’s a few favorites of the gazillion that she took.
And mamas, I absolutely hated stepping in front of the camera. I always feel weird, (what is my mouth doing? Is my right eye going all squinty on me? Why did I wear this dress?) But in the end…I loved them all. Don’t be afraid to step in front of the camera with your families, ladies. And don’t stress about clothes. Everything we are wearing we bought in the Spring. No new outfits necessary. And big shout out to Ashley Kelemen! You’re the best, girl!
