One thing I've learned over the 7 1/2 years of being married...

The more children we have, the harder it is to get a good family photo! My parents never took us to get one when we were growing up, there were 6 of us, and now I understand why! But, we are fortunate enough that Grandpa Simmons, my father-in-law, is a photographer and is willing to put up with us once a year to get a family photo. It really means alot to me to have these pictures. So, here is what we came up with this year. Nothing fancy, but at least we got everyone in it, no one's crying and there was minimal yelling through gritted teeth! :) Do you like the color better or the sepia tone to print for the wall?


As these were uploading I was looking through the "rejects" and I might even like another pose a little better. Decisions, Decisions. But overall, I have to say I have a pretty cute family.

PS - Tell Mike to grow out his hair like he used to and comb it to the side. Enough of the Morrisey look. That guy hasn't had a hit for year...

I HATE taking family pictures..it's so stressful! You always get such good pictures, and these are no exception! I think i might actually like the sepia one the best!

Very cute fam! It was hard to get cute photos with one child I can't imagine what your experience was like. Good job on getting a cute one! :)
