So on top of all my trips, selling and packing the house, I've done a TON of family photo shoots!! I'm just not used to being so busy!! One REALLY big one (5 families!)! So things have just been CRAAAAZY!! I'm finally done editing all of them and decided to do just one big, massive post! All the shoots were at The Benson Grist Mill. People love that place!! It IS great!!
This first shoot was Shawn's cousin's wife's family. So kind of related, but not really. They were so crazy and super fun!! I like it when families can loosen up a little! This was my first really big shoot like this, so I was glad they were so relaxed and fun!
This was their idea! To sit on the old porta-potty! So cute!
The BIG family walk!
And, we fit a one-year-old shoot in too. Aren't her eyes amazing?
Then, I took pictures for my friend, Donell. She's been waiting for weeks during and after I was on my trip to get her family's pictures taken. I was so happy with how they turned out! Her boys are just too cool to smile now, but don't they look so studly?
We copied my idea from my family pictures. It's always a winner! (Thanks for the frame, Jenn!)
I did do a closer shot of Rachel, but this was my favorite.
This family shoot is Shawn's brother, Val's family. It was kind of an impromtu shoot so not many shots. The lighting was great, but it was a little breezy. We did this in a front yard of Shawn's brother, Ryan's, neighbor's house...they weren't home! Naughty! It was a nice yard, though!
And I can't for the life of me, get this picture to turn!! Blogger must not like 5X5's!
And this last shoot was fun! My long lost friend from H.S., who I found through blogging, lives in Delta. She was on her way to a family thing and stopped by so we could do some pictures!! So fun!!
More copycats from my family shoot. It's all good!! (Thanks again, Jenn, for the frame!)
Stacia hasn't changed a bit (except maybe the hairstyle!)! I can't say the same for me, though!
We also did Tate's One Year Old pictures. He was having a bad day (woke up with a goopy eye) and would hardly smile the entire time. This was the only time he smiled...but he was smilin' and laughing good!! Whata cutie!
