Family photos have been so stressful in the past. Many of our sessions over the last 4 years have been at our house, usually photographed in the babies nursery and I’m running around ragged trying to get everything picked up, cleaned and perfect looking. It can make for such an exhausting day when you add that with trying to get yourself dressed and ready as well as a couple small kids. Then you are either acting ridiculous trying to get them to smile and laugh or you are tightly wound telling them to get their act together before I count to 3!!
This time, we decided to go for a beach session. I was planning on just having the kids photographed hoping that would cut out some of the stress. Matt was supposed to be out of town for the night and at the last minute his plans were cancelled. So he met us at the beach and thankfully I had thrown a dress in my car for “just in case.” Ya’ll, we ended up having the most fun session yet!!
I brought marshmallows to bribe the kids, a speaker to jam out to Trolls, and we had a pretty care-free evening. Here’s a look at our photos from the shoot…
The kids outfits are Dondolo (green and yellow) and Pixie Lily (blue and white). They were purchased from Born Children’s Clothing Boutique.
You can find my dress here.
All photos are by the lovely Katie Fox from Annabelle Rose Photography. She is wonderful with kids and has 3 of her own. She was actually recently published around the web for this adorably photo she took of her kids and their cousins. How cute is this??? Here’s the article from Scary Mommy.
