The Family Photoshoot

This is what happens when you forgo a fancy beach photographer and attempt to take your own family photos...

My husband calls this photo my "SuperMom pose." Oh, how pride comes before the fall...literally!

A stranger felt sympathy for us and took the group shot. Unfortunately for my hair, there was a storm blowing in!

We were all laughing hysterically...these pictures will always make me smile thinking about the fun we had taking them.

Ha how adorable, I love the pictures that arent posed anyway!! This looked hallarious. You guys look so wonderfully happy. I am glad you had so much fun.
I am going to Miami beach in a few weeks and looking forward to the ocean I just crave it.
So glad you are back I missed all of you!!
Did you hear that Joy from Joy in the journey is having twins!! I didnt know if you have kept up with her or not.

It looks like you had a wonderful time ... and how LUCKY that you stayed at a spot with a closet full of age-appropriate toys!!

The photos are great. I especially love the black and white pic at the top. The kids looks so adorable.

I think I prefer the homemade type photoshoots over professional. They definitely show how our life really is don't they? Looks like you had a wonderful time away!

Wonderful pics and if my hair could look that good with a storm blowing in I'd be thrilled!!!!

We just had a friend take pics of our kids. She always does an amazing job!

I love pictures that aren't posed and are just natural. What a beautiful background too. I love the supermom photo!

Amelia Island is so beautiful. I could totally live there! Unfortunately we only took a drive through there and didn't actually stay.
Those are great photos!

What terrific pictures!!! That family shot is definitely Christmas card material. And I love the "super mom" photo and the one of Ryland and the kids walking toward the ocean. Don't those sweet little footprints just make you smile? Glad y'all had a good time!
Much love,
Marianna

Sweet, sweet family.

It's always fun trying to do your own photos. Kids never work the way you think they will, do they?
