{Family Pics 2010...finally posting}

I never posted our family pictures taken in September 2010....I know it was several months ago, but better late than never, and I figure we haven't changed too much! 

I was so glad to get these pics taken before the rush of the Holiday season for two reasons.  One: It made getting the Christmas cards out so much easier (b/c getting that great photo is the hardest part!!).  And two: I wasn't showing that pregnant belly yet!  I had to put on a lot of make up to conceal my nausea-stricken face, but it was worth it.

Thank you thank you thank you to our fabulous photographer, Kali Leenstra of KaliLu Photography.  My sister had her family pics taken by Kali so I started following her blog.  And then I attended one of her photography workshops about a year ago, and it was so fun! She was so great to work with such an amateur like me.  It was fun to peak into the brain of a real professional.  So when she ran a fall photography special, I jumped at the chance for her to take our family photos. 

Here are some of my favorites.  And you can see more on her blog here, including some individual shots of the kids which I love.   Family pictures are so important! I love being able to capture and preserve our little family just as it is right now.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
