part of Cal's birthday was spent getting some updated family photos by Nicole.
she's taken all of our family photos since the beginning of time.
when we added Hayesie to the mix.
and back when Cal was fresh out the womb and Hayes was 16 months old, here.
getting ready for family photos can be stressful, but my plan of attack is to select a color scheme first, or even just one color to build off of. for example, our last session we did black, white and grey.
i am not one to buy something new for a photoshoot, it's too much fun making what you have fit into something special together as a family.
so for this shoot, i was totally taken by royal blue & it became that was the starting point.
by adding in a few neutrals (gray, black, russet brown and sand) it's not overly coordinated,
but each family member looks good together in any combination.
Nicole nailed it as always, she does such a great job capturing little moments where our love for each other as a family comes out naturally. i can't wait to get some of these enlarged! as always picking which ones make the cut is going to be one heck of a job.
