My own family photos, Yahooo!!!

Yaay Its finally my turn for photos. Is it ok to say I Love them?!
The thing is I had a vision in my head and knew it wouldn't come out exactly how I imagined
(because of crazy kids you can't make freeze) But It did! Just like in my head.
I have this friend Chelsea (remember HEREHERE and HERE, thanks to her those ideas in my head came to life perfectly.
She has a great eye and knows me so, so well!
I stayed up all night editing them not giving her a chance to show me all the edited ones first :)
as soon as she posts her edits I'll send you over.
Thank you Chels for making me the happiest girl ever
I hope this is how I make some of you feel after seeing you photos
*Happy*

Now I will be blowing up all of these on a new repainted (again) perfect spot in my house
But help me decide which one is the biggest?!
(love all for different reasons)

K now I must encourage all of you to really think of the spirit of your family, kids and house

My home is bright. We are bright, and crazy just like the fair ;)
I also picked clothing not only based on location but on the accent colors in my home


I think its really important not to just bring great clothing to a shoot but a vision that represents your family
I think that's why I love favorite things so much. It shows us who you are, your spirit
so get dreaming up your next photo shoot. I can't wait to see!


oh ya, now go pick your fav photo for me already

Amy! said...

OUT.OF.CONTROL! Ok, I know you know how I feel about these already but....AHHHHHHHHHH I feel like I need to call Vouge or something right now?! This is EXACTLY how I imagined it - I think #2 is the winner for the big blow up one...(maybe just blow up #1 and #3 too?! ha) Love all the little details, like in the animal pic - Gray's pant leg rolled up unintentionally - darling, Navi's socks poking out of her cowboy boots, and your big sassy hair, and necklace... Can't get over Gray's hair either.. (especially in the pic where Nate is juggling) Cutest family EVER award!!!!!!!!!! We SOOO have to recreate this one day when I have little darlings.. I think you guys are the tops! Love love love you friend after my own heart :)

I already voted for #1 but forgot to ask....how on earth did you get to a fair & take pictures without people around?
There is a local fair coming up and I wanted to know how you "got in" so I could try this :O)

matt said...

Those pictures are so much fun, I love the colors! My favorite is the
4th one down but it was really hard to choose! Love the one of Navi on the carousel (<know I spelled that one wrong) horse. You all look great! Jen

Bethany said...

Okay...so I am super guilty of reading things in Google Reader and NOT commenting. I hate that I do that, but I do!! So, I am coming out to comment on how crazy fab these are!! LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

The funny thing is, we are getting our family pictures taken at Balboa Park in November. I chose the location (before ever seeing these) based on the ferris wheel and carousel! I want to have cotton candy and totally have them be fun and whimsical!!

These are truly amazing!!

Jamie Smithson said...

These are the most amazing pictures I have ever seen! They are so creative and fun! I HAVE to know where you got your little boy's shoes and pants!

Suzanna Higginson said...

Okay love the carnival pictures but all the carnivals I have gone to have a gazillion people running amuck. What did you do with all the people? You should feel so good about those pictures they were to die for cute.

Laci said...

Oh gosh thank you all!!! Im just going to have to them all! I might have something crazy up my sleeve for one ;)

Christy said...
