A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get one of my closest friends to photograph my family. Liz from Elizabeth Kristin Photographyis simply the best. We met years ago during my first job out of college. We were both planning our weddings at the same time and realized we had picked out the same wedding photographer and that was it. We are now approaching 10 years of marriage and each have two kids. Wow does time fly! It’s a sweet deal to have a best friend that is a photographer. She doesn’t care how crazy my kids are because she loves them and she doesn’t get bothered when I want something ridiculous like my quest last year to find a massive tutu to get photographed in.
This year I had big plans for our family shoot. Instead of just my crew of 4 I wanted to do a bigger photo shoot. That’s right I got Grandma and Pop-pop on board along with my sisters and my soon to be brother in law. Fun, yes, but a bit more stressful. I didn’t want us to look matchy/matchy, but I didn’t want us to clash either. Liz recommended that we stick with navy, green and burgundy because it looked great against the falling leaves.
Here are our beautiful photos:
You don’t want to know the amount of screaming that went on to get everyone to sit down for this shot. Let’s just say I’m super happy it was a photo and not a video.
It’s so crazy to see how big our family is growing! My sister is getting married this summer and we are all itching for cousins!!! Honeymoon baby, please!
I think we did a good job of having everyone look nicely together and not clash, but not go way too
matchy/matchy. A big thank you to Lizfor her patience and amazing photography skills! If you live on Long Island you must hire her!
