We had our family photos taken recently. I am worried that we are too matchy. We ended up with a HEART/LOVE theme. Pickle’s overalls started it. They were too adorbz and had a heart pocket and heart metalware. Then came Phoebe’s heart print pants and then my LOVE necklace and then Lolly’s LOVE sweatpants—and she’s all–WHY AM I WEARING SWEATPANTS FOR THE FAMILY PICTURE?
I don’t know! because!
And Jason reluctantly agreed to wearing a plaid shirt that had a pinkish stripe in it–you can’t even see it….
shirt sidenote: I bought it for around 70 bucks at banana rep…they sent me home with a 40% off a single item coupon to use the next day…so I bought it again with my rewards from my old navy card and spent 31 dollars and then returned the original one. dumb. and cool.
Lolly was also mad because we were both wearing pink pants so we never got to stand next to each other.
Is Pickle’s hair bow too big?
I hired Lolly’s friend to baby wrangle the Pickle and she totally earned her 5 bucks. Well, I’ll know if she earned her 5 bucks after I see the results won’t I?
It was Central Park on a Saturday which is madness. I had no idea. It is absolutely mad on Saturdays in Central Park. I usually frequent CP during the week, so I wouldn’t know.
Here’s to a family photo that stands the test of time. Let it be known we are looking this in 2013 and may have been too matchy. Ah well.
Blue Lilly asked our family to be the subjects of a photoshoot session for their Go Pro class. I agreed of course!
We had never been to “the Shore” before. Turns out my Mom used to vacation at Ocean City every summer when she lived in Philly. That is where we stopped on the way to our photoshoot! It was a lovely little boardwalk. We enjoyed looking around and getting a snack or two before heading to Cape May.
I was pretty psyched about how the styling for our shoot turned out. It was a tiny bit cool, so Pickle didn’t last long before the lips turned blue and the goose pimples showed up, so we wrapped her in a towel, that thankfully kind of matched the color scheme! Phoebe thought it was child abuse, and whispered that to me through clenched teeth more than one time. Jason declared he hated every minute of it and Lolly and I had the best time ever.
It was intense having 20 cameras in our faces…here is a pic of just about half of them.
It’s interesting because we have received photos from about 3 of the photographers so far. Each has a slightly different spin on The Glass Posse.
My favorites from Black Room Photography in Seattle WA:
My favorite from Amy Fraughton in Gilbert, AZ:
My Favorites from Reyna Malley (soon to be Red Kite Photography) in Chicagoland:
Jason and my outfits were both too big, but Top Stick is such a miracle, you would NEVER KNOW! Lolly was SOOOO in her element–she may have a future. I can’t wait to see more!
Sidenote: I think I am getting pretty good at styling!
I can’t remember when I first heard about Stomping Ground, but the SECOND I did, I knew I wanted them to be our school’s photographer. My dream finally came true. I was the parent volunteer on hand to watch every student get their photo taken a few weeks ago. It was pretty fun to watch all the stages of growing up and the range of emotion about getting one’s photo taken….
I ended up with two of the sweetest frames….and my husband made me blush when he said about this one: “I like this because it shows 3 girls in very awkward stages, and who they can grow up to be”. Aw. I ordered this one and a second of just the 3 of them, with 3 genuine smiles. The girls smile their truest smiles when they are acting as Big Sis to Pickle.
Stomping Ground WILL travel, so run, don’t walk, to your next PTA meeting and hire them! Check out their awesome work.
Her hair in the tub is still pretty killer.
This Christmas we had a Photo Bomb Challenge. As a result, we had a lot of re-dos. “Stop Photo-Bombing!” “Don’t Bomb my photo!” We even had some Video Bombing (see :53). Linz! Great Job!
Dad photo bombed a lot, I have a feeling, NEVER on purpose. See above.
Congratulations to the bombers. Lolly did the best job. I got a pretty good one, there may have been a boob involved. (Hey! I’m still nursing!)
My sister-in-law is a photographer! She recently got a new fancy camera and has been practicing on some of us.
Here she is in action:
The sylist and art director on set:
I asked her to take a few other photos of P and her future husband:
Last week I asked her to take a few snaps of me because my agent asked for some new photos. I am not quite ready to do a full photoshoot since I have some pounds to go, but Jenn took a few for me to tide her over.
If you live in Utah and are interested in getting snapped yourself, leave a comment and I will get you in touch! She’s the best!
