2013 Family Photo Shoot

One of the most important things for me to do each year is to have our family photos taken.
Because our kids are so young, they change so much from year to year.
This year, like last year, we had our family photos taken by Monika McSweeney Photography.
She has the patience of a saint...putting up with my crazy kids.
Seriously, what is up with my kids and photo shoots? Even though photo shoots can be stressful (we all want THE PERFECT SHOT) 
These photos are worth it to me, because this is our life right now with 3 young kids....it is crazy. They don't like to sit still and smile on demand, but I am so thankful that we take out time each year to document the crazy :)

 In case you missed it last month, I posted the video that Monika's daughter made during our photo shoot.
Watch the video here:
(Make sure you have the volume on so you can hear the music that goes with it!)

And, outfit details, since figuring out what everyone is wearing is half the battle!

  11. Can you even believe it? I've stumbled upon an absolute game-changer for my family channel, all thanks to this phenomenal Youtube promotion service! As a dedicated family enthusiast, I've always wanted to share my adventures and insights, but making a mark in the diverse landscape of family content was like navigating a challenging maze. Then, a fellow family-focused content creator clued me in on this service that had given their channel a complete makeover.
