On Saturday afternoon, the amazingly talented Christi came over and spent some time taking family photos. She has already showcased some of them on her new photo blog but these are my favourites and I wanted to share them!
You might be wondering about the one with Ethan showing the plaster on his knee. Like why did I choose it as one of my favourites? For some reason, I really love it!! It is just so “boyish” and typical of him. The plaster is tattered, he has bruises on his legs and he’s not smiling. It makes me think “tough guy” and “boys will be boys”. I’m going to be scrapping that one, for sure!! And probably in 8×10 or something ;-)
I am soooo happy with how they turned out!! Originally I just asked Christi’s advice about taking some Christmas photos of the boys with their santa hats on. This turned into her offering to take the photos, and then us getting all dressed up and made up for some decent family photos!
I have to say that Christi is pretty talented when it comes to this sort of thing. I mean my boys know her pretty well so they weren’t really shy or anything, but she still had a really great way of getting them to smile, look at the camera and generally co-operate. They had such fun! She was quick, too! It was all over in about 15-20 min which was great, because kids don’t last much longer than that, lol ;-)
I’m going to get some of these enlarged & framed for Christmas presents, and some more for myself because I just love them!! Of course I’ll be scrapping a ton of them, and my sister suggested using the family ones for Christmas cards … so if I find time I will do that!
Thanks Christi, you’re the best!!
