Family Pictures Sneak Peek...

Hey all!!  This weekend was crazy.  Like non-stop, go, go go every day until Monday morning.  We packed a lot into those few short days, but it was the perfect fall weekend (weather wise and activity wise) to be out and about!  And I don't know why, but I have been using Mondays to recover from all of our activities...I promise I will start being a better blogger and posting on Mondays again soon, but for now, let's just pretend that today is Monday, so I don't feel so bad about myself, ok?!

Anyway, I promise I will share what our weekend looked like in my post tomorrow, but for now you are getting a little treat.  I am sooooo excited to be sharing a little sneak peek into our family picture session that we did on Sunday morning!

Now, if you are a mom, you understand the anxiety that I had before we took these photos.  First of all, our regular photographer that we've used since I was pregnant with Madden, moved to Utah in the middle of the summer, so we were left hanging to find someone new.  With that lingering over my head, that was the first thing I needed to get taken care of.  Well, luckily my stud of a little brother started dating this amazing girl this summer who just happens to be a photographer!  Well, ding, ding, ding!!  We found ourselves a winner!  Once she was booked, I then had the task of finding the right color scheme, the right outfits, the right date, and lastly, the right location...it's always so stressful for us mamas, am I right??

We were taking a really big risk scheduling our pictures on the 27th of October in Nebraska, where it has been known to have snowed at least a few feet inches already, but God could not have given us a more perfect day.  It was sunny, no wind, and 63 degrees.  It was ideal!  I am still knocking on wood that things went as smoothly as they did.  Because trying to keep a two year old entertained and focused for at least an hour is next to impossible, but Madden did amazing.  I think it helped that he really likes my brother's girlfriend, so that made it easy for him to feel comfortable and for her to capture the most "natural and real" smiles possible!

Well, without further adieux, I give you a tiny sneak peek into our family pictures for 2013.  I cannot wait to see the rest...enjoy!!
This might be my favorite family picture so far...
I just can't control my love for this one.  I envision a large canvas of this one in our bedroom or living room!
I really like this one too...I just can't decide if I like this one in black and white or the next one...

What do y'all think?  Which one is your favorite so far?  Black and white or color for the last one?

Until next time...
