After several years, we finally got around to having pictures taken! :) The last professional pictures were of Abigail as a newborn; before that, a few of Elizabeth as a baby. We haven't had a family shot since Jonathan was a baby- that's five years ago! Yikes! I didn't want to have the traditional studio shots so I was excited to find Kanella of Kanella Brown Photography. Her prices are great, she'll come to your house if you want, you get copy rights to your pictures, and, most importantly, the children loved her. :)
We're looking forward to taking some family shots this spring (I wanted to wait a few months till after the birth before being in front of the camera), so I just asked Kanella to come to our home to take pictures of the children. I didn't make things easy for her. First, there are SEVEN LITTLES to take pictures of. Second, I didn't find time to decorate the house before she came. Third, the weather was CHILLY & rainy. We lost most of leaves just before she came. (Okay, that one isn't my fault but it made outside pics difficult & limited.) Fourth, my 2 younger boys needed haircuts. Fifth, Matthias kept doing some cheesy-form of a smile. Er. But we're thrilled with the pictures she took.
Enjoy seeing some of the pictures. I'm looking forward to the spring & also having Emily's pictures taken next month. :)
Oh, they're growing up:
