Family Photos

So now that it’s the new year & Christmas is officially a memory, it’s about time to finally share our photos taken a couple months back for our holiday cards.  I know other moms can relate, taking family photos is always fun but also brings some major anxiety, you just never know how those sweet little ones are going to act! 🙂  I am beyond thankful for our photographer turned good friend Brooke, she always manages to capture our family so beautifully, something I truly attribute to the fact that we are so comfortable with her.

My Dress, My Shoes (Similar), Waverly’s Dress, Avalon’s Dress, Girls Headbands
Narrowing down favorites for this post was near impossible, I these will definitely be added to our growing collection of photos that will cherish forever.

Happy halfway through the week, friends!!

    Such gorgeous photos! We have our maternity photos coming up and the pre-shoot anxiety is already setting in. What to wear? Will K behave? Will my hair behave? But you're right, having an awesome photographer you feel comfortable with makes all the difference! 🙂

Family Photos

Happy, happy Friday, friends!!  Our days have been kicking off a little bit (or a lot) earlier lately, out of nowhere, Waverly started waking up around 6, about an hour & a half earlier than she used to.  It’s definitely not my favorite timing since it pretty much coincided with my summer break, I love her something fierce but had been looking forward to waking up once it was actually light outside for months.  We tried pushing back her bedtime, changing her nap schedule, & attempting to rock her back to sleep, none of it worked so we gave up.  Instead, we decided to welcome our early-riser with open arms (& halfway closed eyes) each morning.
It’s honestly become one of my favorite times of the day, Waverly is not much of a “sit still” kind of girl so the fact that she actually sits with us in bed for a good amount of time each morning is pretty incredible.  We watch Sesame Street, cuddle, & laugh, it makes me appreciate her, our family of three, & this extra time we get together.  One day I know I will desperately want these moments back.
We recently had some family pictures taken, I’m so excited to share some of our favorites!!  I love the ones of the three of us & also am officially obsessed with the pictures of just Waverly.  Our photo wall (& hearts) are very full right now.

The biggest thank you to Nicole of N.A. Barrett Photography, we are so grateful for all the pictures you have captured of our family. 🙂
Wishing you all the happiest weekend with your loved ones!

    Beautiful photos! I'm starting to think about ours… We are getting them taken in 2 months and I can't decide what we all should wear and what props (if any) to use.

    Your photos are seriously gorgeous.
    We have the same early morning issues. Between 5:30 and 6:00 AM we are up and ready to go (and by "we" I mean Marcus). Like you, we tired everything to get the morning wake-up call pushed back. No dice. Eventually the kids will want to sleep in, right? 🙂

  17. August 16, 2014 / 1:42 am

    How adorable are these pics! I'm obsessed with these flower crowns. I wish my Ell would wear one! And your dress is so cute.

  18. August 16, 2014 / 3:17 am

    Oh my these all are so amazing!! I love the one where you all are cracking up!! So cute!

  19. August 16, 2014 / 4:24 am

    GORGEOUS photos!!! Love! We just took some family photos for Mason's 2nd birthday and am dying waiting to get them back!!

  20. August 16, 2014 / 12:43 pm

    Beautiful!!! No fun about waking up earlier, but you are right. All we can do is embrace it and enjoy it while it lasts. 🙂

  21. August 19, 2014 / 7:41 pm

    Love these, love how genuine your laughs look. You guys are a great looking family.

  22. August 21, 2014 / 12:44 am

    Seriously, could your family be any more beautiful?!
