We recently had new family pictures taken and I really love when this time comes around. When the kids were younger I had pictures taken every six months and now we are doing them once a year. It’s easy to get lost in the day to day grind and the pictures give me a snapshot of our lives at that time. These days always seems to stick with me, even the hectic mornings as we get everyone ready for pictures. I love comparing the pictures from year to year and watching the kids grow. Plus it gets me in the picture with the kids!
We took these pictures at the beautiful Mellon Park in Pittsburgh. The kids were extremely uncooperative during the 45 minute photo shoot and I expected the pictures to be a total loss. 2 days after the photo shoot the photographer sent me a preview photo and I loved it. Since I wasn’t expecting any good pictures I was thrilled with the preview and couldn’t wait to receive the rest of the pictures. I was like a child on Christmas morning when the full set of pictures arrived. I looked through them a dozen times and showed the kids and forwarded them to our friends and family. Now I am printing them and hanging them around the house for me to enjoy looking at every day.
