Our family pictures are here

Our family pictures are here and I must say I am absolutely in love with them. Despite the kids being crazy and uncooperative, our photographers still got some amazing shots. I highly recommend doing professional family pictures once a year of your family. It's nice to get everyone dressed up and immortalize those shots. I have already ordered about 8 of my favorites to update our family pictures around the house :). Bean is finally going to be all up on our walls.

We took the pictures in our backyard and our bedroom. I always like to do pictures with babies at home because it is so much easier to manage them in our own setting and I can do multiple outfits. I picked my dress and organized everyone's outfit around me. I must say the colors came together nicely.

We started outside and went straight for the family pictures. You have to get it while the going is good.
 Love love love this one :)
I also wanted pictures of each of us with the boys. Tman's face in this picture just cracks me up, that kid I tell you.
Me and my boys, blessed indeed
I wanted pictures of each of the boys individually and a picture of all of them together. Great success.

We got this bonus picture of Tman and Jbird loving on Bean
After the outside pictures, we came inside, put on our Redskins jerseys and took more pictures. The inside pictures were so much fun, we just played on the bed while they snapped away. We got so many great ones.

Check out my Bean drooling everywhere and looking so adorable
The boys were having a ball

I love that in this picture you can see the top of our bed with our pictures with each kid.
I changed the boys into these awesome shirts I got for them when we found out Bean was a boy. I really wanted a picture of them with those shirts on :). 8 months ago we took this picture during our maternity shoot, Bean was still in the belly.
I love that he is here today wearing his own shirt :).
I love how the photographers captured our family so well. I definitely think that we found our family photographer, they are awesome with the kids and I just like working with them. I have used the word "love" a million times in this post and that's because I really love these pics :)

  6. Love the pics!! We do family photos every year as well and I must say the hardest part for me is the outfits! I love how everyone coordinates and compliments each other.

    What do you do with the old pictures that you have around the house? Do you just add to the existing ones or change them out?

    1. Thanks girly, I didn't use to coordinate so well, then I started looking for ideas online. The pictures look way better when everyone is coordinated wit complimenting colors.

      You know, right now I just move the old pics to the bedrooms. That's not going to last long if I keep printing pics tho :). So far so good. I have only printed new pics when we added a new family member so it's not so bad. Eventually I probably will just change them out, at least the family ones.

  8. ha ha tman's face in that one picture, lol. I love the turquoise/red colour combo you have going on here - it's one of my favourites actually. I love to bust it out mid winter when everyone is wearing greys and blacks!

    I am with you on getting professional family photos done once a year. We had ours done (i actually just posted about it today) and I am so happy with the results. much better than asking someone to take a picture of all of us together. def worth it :)

    I love the pic of all 3 boys on that little bench, it's suchva sweet photo.
