family pictures

I *LOVE* family pictures. I love capturing the love families have for each other. I love having pictures all together to document the passage of time. I love pictures with silly faces, happy faces, even toddlers who are fussy or frustrated. That being said - I seriously think I would have professional family pictures taken every month if I could afford it (and if Cory and the boys would humor me that often!). We had our family's pictures taken fairly recently (see this post) but when we were all together for Thanksgiving with the Ellis family we tried doing a large family picture. I haven't seen the results of that (and with the way the kiddos were all acting - I'm anxious to see it) - but here are some pictures of our family.

The photographer's name is Antonio Neyra and is a good friend of my sister-in-law Ashley's. He spent HOURS with all of the families and took some great pictures. Thanks Antonio!





(And when I got us all dressed in our brown again - the same as we used for our last pictures - I didn't realize that they were all such different shades of brown....I'm hoping to convert these to black and white, and hope that won't show up as much....)

Such cute pictures! I swear you have the most handsome little boys ever. These pictures totally want me to go get family photos taken! (I'm with you...I'd get them done all the time! But I think our last ones were too recent and my family won't humor me again quite yet.) :)

I love the family pictures, you all lok so happy and photogenic. I have such a hard time telling the boys apart when they are individual pictures. You can deffinetely tell they are related.
I have the same problem with trying to match colors. We just did some family pictures also and I think all three of us were in a different shade of green. Oh well at least we are all in the picture right?

These are great pictures! And I don't think the different shades of brown look bad at all! And I swear, your boys could be twins! ;o)
