One of my favorite things we did as a family this past year was hire an amazing portrait photographer and videographer to capture us in our home for a “Family Session.” This has a more documentary-feel, and I couldn’t wait to have Lindsey in our home to begin! We are beyond thrilled with the outcome and have probably watched this close to 20 times!! It’s just so sweet! Lindsey filmed us back in August and it’s incredible to see the changes in each of our children in just a few short months. The video portrait is definitely one tradition I’d like to keep every year or so.
Isn’t it beautiful?! Lindsey is a miracle worker! While most of the session was stress-free (the parts that weren’t were of my own making!!) and pretty loosey-goosey, kids are kids, and we adults aren’t so great at acting normal with a camera nearby! Below are our 2016 family portraits. Lindsey, thank you for your sweet spirit and exuberant personality! You are a joy to be around and I’m so thankful we were able to make this happen! Beautiful work, friend!
We spent the majority of our holiday break organizing and purging and donating all sorts of stuff. It felt great. Clothes the kids have outgrown, boxes we hadn’t looked through since we moved (it’s been TWO years!!!), YIKES!!! Getting our home in order and reflecting on the past year and then planning out the upcoming year brings excitement and anticipation. I can’t wait to see where the new year will take us. What have you been up to?
