Smile for the camera

“The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.” ~ Francis Bacon, Sr.

Today my husband and I, along with my Mom and sister, meet a photographer at a local park to have our pictures taken together. The photographer happens to be a good friend so it was a great time. But, I didn't know I was going to have to work so hard. I wore heels! I know, silly me. But we were hiking up and down hills, kneeling behind trees, climbing stairs. It was a lot of work but well worth it.

We had a fabulous time. The photographer was so open to all our ideas and let us be really cheesy. So, we have some "normal" shots..everyone lined up, smiling pretty. And then we have some of us peeking around a large tree and these great back-lit silohettes of us girls being sassy and of us kids jumping off the ground. I don't know if I described that well enough, but there you go.

I can't wait to see how they turned out. And next weekend we get to do it all over again with my husbands family. I'll be wearing boots.


  1. I know the pictures will come out GREAT!!! Can't wait to see them. :)

  2. That sounds like so much fun - I wish I did that with my family. Can't wait to you post them!!
