For the past couple of years, we have been a little lazy when it came to our annual family photo shoot. Rather than taking the time to hire a professional, we have grabbed the tripod in the midst of busy season and headed to a location of our choosing to take some family photos. It has worked out okay but it was important to me this year to hire a photographer friend to document our family and spare us the trouble of taking them ourselves. Not to mention, the interactions are much more natural and enjoyable when someone else is handling the “work” part of the photography and it’s not up to us!
I’m so thankful that we made this happen, and I love our 2016 fall family photos! We used the photos from this session for our Christmas card this year, and I love the way they turned out. The giving and receiving of Christmas cards is absolutely one of my favorite holiday traditions and I hope it never ends even though we have digital everything these days!
Here are my favorites from our session with the adorable and wonderful Sara Renee!
