We do family photos every year like clockwork. Always in the fall (sometimes pushed to December because I’ve forgotten to schedule them) – but every year. My favorite sessions always end up being the lifestyle family photos that we do. It’s crazy to see how the kids change year after year, and how we’ve changed, too. Sure, we still ride bikes (and probably do it a little more now), but we’ve been a lot more outdoorsy this year. When we were talking to Valerie Demo about our family session this year, bikes, hammocks, and s’mores were at the forefront of what we wanted to do – so we did. And all in our court and backyard.
And of course, we had to get in the hammock. And apparently the dogs had to, too (which I was 1000% okay with). The kids thought it was hilarious, too.
And jumping on the bed – because, why not?
And s’mores and the willow tree… well, for Wren it’s just marshmallow and Graham cracker because she doesn’t like chocolate (which is insane).
So this is us – quirky, fun, kids generally not listening to anything we say. But for our 2019 photos? They were perfect. Thanks for everything, Valerie Demo. You’re pretty freaking fantastic.
