I am so excited to share our family photos! We just got them back this morning and I think my jaw dropped to the floor because I was so in love with them. Our photographer perfectly captured each one of our children’s personalities, the love we feel for each other, and the fun we have! We get family photos done every year, just in time for Christmas cards to be sent out. I figured if we did our family photos in September, maybe I’d actually send them out before Christmas this year, LOL!
The location of this shoot was simply gorgeous. A beautiful, secret location that you’d have no idea was hiding there as you’re driving by. It felt like a mini swamp and we had to brave some mean mosquitoes, but the photos turned out so magical and earthy. I couldn’t imagine them being better!
Choosing our outfits for the shoot was a little difficult at first. I had actually picked out all of our outfits and tried my dress on and did not like the way it looked. I talk about this a lot here, but man, it’s crazy how much our bodies change as moms. Sometimes I look in the mirror and I’m like, “that’s not me is it? It can’t be.” Super last minute, I went in to our local Evereve (with my husband and kids in tow) and I found the perfect romper for our shoot.
First of all, walking into Evereve was incredible. There was so much space for our wide stroller! There was also a space for my husband and kids to sit and play while I tried on clothes. They had coloring books and toys and my kids didn’t throw a single fit… MOM WIN! Second, their staff was so helpful an helped me pick out several outfits that were perfect for my body type and style. And they were SO nice! I tried on a few outfits (behind-the-scene pics at the end of this post!) and ultimately chose a blue and white striped romper with a blue bralette. I love that their mission is all about feeling sexy and beautiful as a MOM. We need more of that in this world!
The two shots I really wanted were of our family and of my husband and me. Once again, I can’t believe how gorgeous every single shot turned out. I’m in love! Photos by the incredible 1G3B Photography. If you’re in the Gilbert/Mesa/Chandler/Queen Creek area, you need to hire her! She’s amazing!
