Family Photoshoot

Remember when about two months, fifty pounds, twelve inches, a pregnancy test, five milkshakes, and a bag of cadbury christmas balls ago I mentioned that we had finally had some family pictures taken?

Okay, so I'm exaggerating the weight... a little.

I know, I know, I'm awful slow in posting them. But Cassie from CG Photography did a great job and anyone brave enough to try and photograph a family with four little ones running amuck ought to get some serious brownie points.

And their place secured in heaven.

There are a ton of super cute and fun ones, but these were some of my favorites.




But I gotta be honest with ya'll. My absolute, very most favoritist (because favoritist is my most favoritist word) picture out of the whole bunch is this one.




























I mean, come on, it's awesome right? I love the realness of it all.

I'm seriously leaning towards getting this one enlarged for our living room.

What do you think?

They are all awesome, and I really do love the last one, that is so how our family pictures went when we did them with all of Sean's family. And there were only two babies. She did an amazing job, well your kids are super cute, so it must not have been that hard to get cute pictures of them.

Jocelyn Christensen said...

You REALLY should! I would!

Brittney said...

Way cute Serene!!!

Lisa @ Pulsipher Page said...

Super cute pictures! My favorite is the 1st family one.

MommyJ said...

Oh, how cute they all are! The expression on your oldest in that last one though is truly priceless. I'd pick that one too, I think.

Garden of Egan said...

Seriously, does an organized, normal looking photo belong on the living room wall? i don't think so.
I've seen the pictures you've posted of those monkeys.
I say keep it real!
Of course, all of them are darling!
I just think people would start laughing when they came in your house and saw that one.
We've all been there.

That's what we did for our Christmas card two years ago. We couldn't get a single "great" photo so we went in an opposite direction, found the worst, and put it on the card. It was awesome! Very memorable! Plus, you get to see who really pays attnetion to their christmas cards and who doesn't. Haha!

Saimi said...

WOW!! Serene those are incredible!! You have such an adorable and beautiful family!! I too love the first photo, what's not real about that? Too, too cute!!

Ben, Heather and kids said...

wow! serious brownie points indeed. triple points!! she did amazing!

I love pics when all 4 of my kids cooperate together.. but the best pics we have are 'real life' shots.

The Damsel In Dis Dress said...

Good grief, those are seriously too cute.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Oh, my! What cutie patooties. Especially youtie. I LUB that last shot.

Kim Coates said...

You have such a beautiful family. I love all of these. But I totally agree with you. Post the silly one. The world needs more laughter. We need more realness. It's genuine, but still beautiful.

Sue said...

Yep, the one you picked is the winner. But they're all great!

=)

PS. The very first one of you as a family is my second favorite...

nikib4kids said...

I am lovin' those pics! And I totally agree that the "real" family pics are the best ones!

Impulsive Addict said...

Ohmygosh...that last pic is PRICELESS! Yes, frame it up BIG girl! That is the winner winner chicken dinner! (if you haven't seen the movie, then this absolutely makes no sense to you)


I have family pics on Friday. I wish I had 4 kids. I only have one. The changes of getting such an incredible family portrait are slim to none...especially since she LOVES the camera. Darn it.

Neisha said...

great photos! you have a beautiful family :)

Megan Jones said...

Okay, I personally. Like the last one for multiple reasons. 1.) The look you and Luke are exchanging-he looks smitten with you and you're like, "Seriously? Can't they behave just once?" 2.) Savannah is almost gloating that she's behaving and looking at the camera (the folded arms are a major plus!)

I love it all! But the last one really is priceless!

iamwoman said...

you guys are too cute! Every time I do a photo shoot--it's the candid ones that make me the happiest. It's actually what I am known for, anyway. Don't come to me for posed perfection, I always say.

Your family is rock'n!

iamwoman said...

Also, can I just TELL someone that my son came in with homemade nutella on some apples and I had to TURN HIM DOWN because I am off sugar this week?

Holy cow. Just had to vent here for a minute...while I recuperate.

T said...

honesty is the best policy... and that photo... that's as honest as they come!

Lara said...

Oh yes, I LOVE that last photo. Those kinds are usually my favorite kinds.

Patty Ann said...

Oh, I love the last one!! It looks just like every photo session I ever did. I would so blow it up!! Your kids did a great job, seriously!! Love all the pics.

Missy said...

Those are great pics!

Kate and Cole said...

The last one is my favorite!

Mama Smith said...

I want a copy of them ALL! I remember what Josh said...about the family photo he got of his family...I could only LAUGH...thinking of all the family photos we had...! It still brings smiles just thinking...about those "events"...(smile)

Sara Lyn said...

Those are beautiful and I love the last one! Two hilarious!

Larsen said...

Frame it. Do it!!

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Girl, you look sensational!!! And your family is darling, I love them all!

Cheeseboy said...

They turned out really, really great. I liked finding the patterns. (I teach first grade.)

M-Cat said...

They are all great, but I too, love the 'real' ones. Posed and staged are just okay for me, I love the candid!
Cute fam girl!

Brenick said...

i really love that last one too!! haha. it really tells a story! but, your just gonna have to get family pics done again real soon, so you might as well get pics done again next year and get those blown up... so lil one doesnt feel left out :)

ldsjaneite said...

These are fabulous! The last one really is the best. Captures things so well.

Valerie said...

They are all great. I love that you want to frame that last one. I love how you and your husband are looking at each other. Too sweet.

Seth said...

What a great family, very good pictures!

Boy, I'm so far on reading blogs. I don't even know why I comment when nobody will read this, but if you do, thanks for sharing the photos.
