2013 Fall Family Pictures
Way back in November we had a family photo session with the lovely KariBeth of KBG Photography! I started reading KariBeth's blogs years ago. She is a fellow Houston momma and we share a love for all things smocked as well as matching siblings in precious Southern clothes!
I was so excited for our session with KariBeth because I knew she would understand how hectic pictures with two kids can be! Kate was a mess because she wanted all of the pictures to be just her. Will was outside, mask free for the first time since his transplant and just wanted to run. I have no clue how she managed to get as many beautiful shots as she did! I guess she just has that mom magic!
I had every intention of using these pictures for Christmas cards. I even designed a beautiful card. But, life got in the way and they never even got printed - much less mailed out! This is the first year since Alex and I have been married that I didn't send cards out. I thought I would have been upset or stressed but I wasn't. At all. I had a very "oh well, we're busy and I can't add one more thing to my list" attitude which goes against my type A personality! Proof that maybe I am making some progress with my need to feel in control at all times.
Look at Will cheesin! And my goodness Alex and Will are such twins! I love the pictures of Al and his babies - and they are already framed and in his office! I also love seeing pictures of myself with the kids since I am normally behind the camera. We ended up not getting a picture of just me a Kate but I do love the one of me and Will!
Proof that my kids do love each other (at times)!
Sweet bubba! What a year 2013 was for him! These pictures perfectly capture his new life! Full of energy and wants to run everywhere! And my goodness his hair has grown so much in two months! He is actually about to have a haircut because his hair has come back in so well already!
And little Miss drama queen. That pout? I can't even handle it. When I received my on-line gallery and started picking my images, I knew, without a doubt, I had to have that picture. She was crying because Mrs. KariBeth wouldn't only take pictures of just Kate! But thankfully she gave us some beautiful smiles too!
We let the kids run free long enough to capture a picture of just me and Alex! I can't believe we've been together over TEN years! My goodness the time has flown by!
The best part about our session was the wonderful family picture we got! I'm talking 5-6 amazing family shots! That's never happened before!
Also please note that Will has on two different socks! I was rushing around the morning of our pictures and was so proud I picked out two socks with navy toes/ heels from the clean (unfolded) laundry basket! Then I got our proofs back and noticed that while they both had the same color heels/ toes, they were in fact different socks! KariBeth said she could photoshop the navy band out but I wanted it to stay! I know I will always look back on this picture and remember the heavenly chaos that came with having an 18 month old and a 3 year old in the house!
I can't wait to see these beautiful pictures framed in out new house...when we finally have a new house! Lol!
(I was not compensated for this post at all - I just really loved KBG Photography's work and adore all of the pictures from our session!)
