We haven't had family pictures taken in so long! It feels great to have these beautiful shots of our family to cherish for years to come! I am so thrilled with how they turned out. I spent a lot of the day prepping the kids. I told them that we were taking pictures so we could capture how our family loves each other. Then we google image searched examples of family photos and I let the kids pick out poses they thought we should do. The first one on this post was Evie's idea. Avett picked one where everyone was holding their own gun. Then we came across a picture of a family of six completely nude and they were all laying on top of each other (no worries, all parts were somehow properly covered) We all got the giggles and Evie made me reassure her several times that we would not do that pose.
I am really grateful to capture our little family at this stage. Just the 4 of us. We've grown a lot together and learned a lot from each other. We are all being refined by each other every day. I'm so grateful that grace is something I really learned a lot about last year and that it is something I apply to my motherhood as often as I can.
We love our little children and pray for them every night and express our gratitude to Heavenly Father for trusting us with them.
