My New Year's goal for the past four years has been to take a family photo. And I was just sure it wouldn't be hard. And then I looked up and an entire year was gone (and then FOUR entire years) and it hadn't been done. Also, I may have sort of avoided it thinking, "Oh, by next year, I'll be 20 pounds lighter and it'll be better to do it then."
So, last month, I traded some services with a good friend of mine who is a photographer. And then kind of swindled her into taking our family pictures.
She's a photographer. A for real one. Like she has gear. And she's the kind of photographer that makes you realize that even though you consider yourself somewhat of a photographer as well, all you really do is randomly dink around with your camera.
Anyway, here are a few of the sneak peak images she posted this morning. The good news is, she's totally edited out my neck wattle!
Just as a PS We had a majorly hard time getting Tate to smile at all. I couldn't figure it out because he'd just had a nap and after a good nap, he's usually a super agreeable kid. Then, on the way home, as he was having a major conniption, we realized we hadn't actually fed him since noon. Mother of the Year!
