FAMILY PHOTOS


First of all, thanks for your input on yesterday's post!  I always love reading your preferences, and they were pretty split down the middle!  As of last night, #2 and #3 were tied, with #1 bringing up the rear.  That one is really so much prettier in person than the sample!  I'll keep you posted with what I choose, but it might be after Christmas!  :)

Speaking of Christmas, it's time to think about Christmas Cards!  Last month I gathered the family up and forced them we took some family photos.  Want a peek?

I was happy to schedule with a friend and tremendously talented photographer to snap our pics.  Caitlin of Cait Photo is a pro who has taught herself a great deal and is so good at putting her subjects at ease.  The kids were completely comfortable with her and she was fast!  A while back she offered a discount on some mini-sessions and I took her up on it.


I really like to take a good family photo once a year while the kids are young, but we'll probably use one for our Christmas cards too.





I'm not sure how these kids got so big.  Boy, time flies fast!  BTW, this is one of my favorites just because that grass is SO beautiful...you can see every individual blade!




She can do it all...families, babies, senior pictures, weddings, indoors, outdoors...you name it!






But, if you follow her on Instagram it's easy to see that her favorite subjects are definitely her hubby and her dog (and chocolate chip pancakes and pizza)!


Can you stand how cute this is???


Caitlin was very kind to provide some extra time after our shoot to do a few new head shots for me, too.  She's a magician with the camera, I tell you!


If you're local to Oklahoma City and need a great photographer, Caitlin would love to hear from you!  She has a facebook page with even more samples of her gorgeous and versatile work, and if you follow her there you can see more of her portfolio and be notified when she's offering more specials.  Christmas is 48 days away!

Next time I'll show you how I displayed one of my favorite photos from the shoot.  Have a great HUUUMP DAAAAY!!! (My son can't let that one die!)

  15. You have a beautiful family, and all of your pictures turned out great, so many to choose from, I'm sure you will have a hard time picking just one. Smart of you to have scheduled this before the cold weather that we are currently having ;)
