Family Portraits!

Being that I am a photographer, I have always been the one to take the portraits of the kids and even our own family portraits.  However, since I cannot be behind the camera and in front of the camera at the same time, I could never achieve the candid, true-to-life look I wanted.  Last Christmas, Mark granted my request to (for the first time in our lives) hire a photographer to take family portraits for us.  My sweet college friend and fellow photographer, Diana recently moved back to Alabama from New Orleans, and I was quick to ask for her help! 

So, a few weeks ago, we met with Diana and Jake to have our family portraits taken at the Mobile Botanical Gardens.  It was early in the morning, wet, and very very humid, but we still had a great time.  Here are a few of my favorites from our session. 

Be on the look-out...Our family blog will be getting a "face-life" with new pictures in the near future, and I can't wait!  :-)  It just has to wait until I get home from my Girls' Getaway...  I promise I'll be back to posting regularly SOON!!  Hope you enjoy our pictures :-)
