2011 Fall Family Pictures

I am one of thoses crazies who loves having family pictures done.
I love planning what we are going to wear.
Finding a cool location (or giving my favorite photographer, Triana, that job.)
The only bad part:
Fighting with my little ladies to smile for the camera.
So, this year as we were getting in the car to meet for our mini photo session,
on a cold, drizzly morning (aren't they always when we do photos!?)
Ansley stared to complain.
"I don't want to take photos. I hate taking pictures.
It's going to be cold.
It isn't fun.."
You know the typical 7 year old. Or 33 year old. No names...
I chose to ignore this when Livvy piped up.
"Ansley, WE do not act this way.
WE are nice girls.
We LOVE having our picture taken."
Glad someone listens to my pep talks :)

I am happy to report that the pictures went amazingly well.
We were done in 20 minutes,
with 150 images.
Yes it was cold,
yes it was wet.
But, there were SMILES!!
And no complaints.
Mommy was a happy lady.

Here are a few of my favorites from our fall shoot!!
Thanks again Triana.
We LOVE them.
(so much I even got a few printed... I said I like having pictures taken,
never said I actually printed them!? Working on it...)
