Our Annual Attempt at Family Pictures // 2016

For the past few years, I’ve attempted to take family pictures using our trusty camera + tripod combo.

I use the word “attempt” because it truly is an attempt. Good thing I’m a big fan of lifestyle photography, because this is how the first 20 minutes went down…

My boys were not all about getting their feet wet and sandy. Because clearly we can only have wet feet during playtime, not picture time. Nate got over the disappointment of wet feet rather quickly. Miles was a bit harder to convince.

Holding Karis helped distract him from his former discontent. Also, biceps.

Nate loves to wink.

And I love his scrunchy-face smile!

Oh my goodness, this face. So funny and freaky at the same time! He’s such a crazy boy!

Here’s his sweet smile. Heart melter.

And speaking of heart melters . . . yum.

Jonathan took the camera and suggested he get some pics of me. I copped out and kept the baby with me.

Overall, it was a fairly successful picture session. I’m so thankful to have these memories captured!
