Family Pictures

Is it just me or is getting family pictures taken one of the most stressful things there is? Even when I think I am so prepared, I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off the day of the pictures... Ironing the clothes, making sure we are "perfectly coordinated" (like it really matters), curling Liv's hair, crossing my fingers that we get at least 1 shot where we are all smiling or at least just looking at the camera, running to my friend Tara's at the last minute to get matching flowers for the girls' hair. Despite all of this, our pictures turned out great & we actually had fun getting them taken. I couldn't be happier with them! Here is a sampling of some of our favorites... O.K., a lot of our favorites. I couldn't decide which ones to post.

They are ALL so cute! Katie and Dan did a great job. The hard part will be choosing which ones to blow up. I love the one with you and your girls. You all look so great.

How can you even chooose! They are so good. I think picture day is stressful-with kids it is nuts. We have one family shot were we are all laughing and on top of Brandon and Izzie is screaming her guts out. Hilarious.

Wow. What a gorgeous family! I love your photos. You are all dressed so adorable {the boys look hip} and the flowers in your girls' hair are perfect.

p.s. You and Heather are best friends, but you could also be sisters.

Such cute pictures Christie. I agree that it is hard to get pictures done. By the time I get everyone else ready my hair and makeup is sweat out beyond belief and I need another shower. You and your kids all look fabulous though.

they turned out SOOO good. You'll have to be my fashion coordinator next time I attempt family pictures. I was so scarred by our last family picture experience I don't know if I have it in me to do it again this fall. You did such a cute job and the pics are adorable!
