Family Photos 2015

December 1, 2015

I LOVE taking family photos! We were due for some professional ones since we barely have any with Leo! We did ours with Anne from The Photography Shoppe, and she is just our style! Natural and very easy to work with. I have always admired her photos, she has the perfect lighting and a little touch of hippie style that I really love. I was excited to get some new photos with her with all FOUR of us! We took these back in October during a fall mini session that she had. While it’s seriously SNOWDAK (snowy South Dakota, for all you outsiders), it is nice to see the lovely colors of fall again in these :)


I chose this one ↑ for our Christmas card! I’ll be sharing the whole card and which design I picked from Minted on Saturday! If you’re still in need of some help, these were my favorites.

Maternity Photos and Family Photos

May 27, 2015

Our family did a little mini maternity and family photo sesh with Anne from The Photography Shoppe (website here facebook here) on Mother’s Day. It was raining and started storming at the end, but we made it through the session! Whew! I was 34.5 weeks pregnant at the time, so I had a pretty good bump going :) I was happy to get some more maternity photos and ALWAYS nice to add some family pics in there too. Check ’em out! And thank you Anne, we love the pictures!
