Do you do family photos every year? We did an official family photo shoot last September, and I loved it so, so much.
After we did our photos last year, Matt’s parents mentioned that they’d love to get pictures done with the kids too. Somehow it took us over a year, but we finally did it.
We did the photo shoot at a local farm (I wish this was OUR farm, but it’s not. A girl can dream, though!). We went for a different vibe than last year with more subtle, muted colors. And I love them! The kids change so much, so fast. I want to make it a yearly tradition.
We got a few good ones of Matt and I too.
Like last year, Matt’s incredibly talented cousin took the pictures. It’s so fun to work with her, not only because she’s a great photographer, but because she loves my kids and I think that helps her really capture their personalities.
The next time we’re up in Boston to visit my family, we’re having photos done with the extended family there too. I’m really excited! And I love that we’ll be able to decorate our walls with prints of the people we love most—including grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins in these photos just makes me happy.
