My good friend Emily Camp is a great photographer and for the past 3 years we have swapped our skills and taken each others family photos. It really has been such a blessing to capture our growing families and to save money in these tighter life seasons. I honestly don't know that I would even make it a priority to get our family pictures done each year if I didn't have a friend doing it for us because, picture days are often ridiculously stressful around our house. I don't even know why...we have the entire day to prepare for them, we plan and pick settings and outfits in advance, we keep the expectations low and it really isn't that big of a deal to me. I know the routine after all as I am a photographer myself nonetheless, like clock work, about an hour or two before our session, the moods in our house begin to deteriorate. Sigh. Does anyone have that issue or is it just us?
Anyways, this year we almost backed out...almost but, we pulled it together at the last second and I am very glad that we did. I love the beautiful images that Emily captured of our family and our 3 1/2 year old daughter who really does look much older this year than she did in last year's Christmas photos believe it or not. I do too but, let's not get excited about that shall we.
To answer the ten people who asked me where my shirt came from...TJ Maxx, Summer '13. Sorry, that was not relevant for the rest of you but, you have to admit...it is a cute shirt. It's like a confused mix of the 80's, 90's and 2000's. :)
Thank you Emily again for being such a great friend and photographer!
And thank you sweet Jesus that we only have to do this once a year:)

I love this picture that Emily captured of Daisy sitting pretty and doing such a good job getting her picture taken. Love my little girl so much.
