Since I shared our Christmas card with you last week, I thought I’d share more of our family photos! We haven’t had photos done as a family since Dylan was 6 months old. Some people are great about yearly family photos and I’m not one of those people. In fact, we rescheduled these photos about 4 times because of weather or me not having the right outfits for anyone except Clint (who doesn’t care what he wears for photos and would prefer not to shop for anything new). Thank goodness Ashley is patient with me, my random ideas and with the dancing boys in these photos – they actually did a Christmas mini session with her over the weekend too!
We did these photos at Dow Gardens, as well as in the backyard at our house. I loved having everything outside and a little more casual. My original idea was inspired by the Harry/Meghan engagement photos but as time went on, and I cancelled our date a few times, I just kept getting more and more casual in outfit choices and locations. And then I realized I was really asking a lot out of a 2 year old and 6 year old to do “formal” looking family photos. I think what we ended up with was perfect for us at this stage and, as you can see, a lot of personality came out in these photos!
