This momma had decided to forgo family pictures this year. All the preparation and stress that she thought it would take to get ready just wasn't on her list of priorities. BUT...thankfully I convinced her otherwise by showing her some pics of this location and promising to make it as pain free as possible. Of course I forgot to mention at that time that meeting at 830am on one of her only weekends off of work was necessary. Oh well, the light was fantastic and the whole family arrived cheerfully and ready to pose;) Of course the teenage boys needed some encouragement to actually smile!!! LOL! Just a glimpse of what I have to look forward to with my boy!! But smile they did and I love how these pics turned out! Lovely!! I'm so glad this momma decided to do this!! And I hope she will be too!!
