Our family photo shoot

I've really been wanting to take family pictures but not the kind you have to pay for... spend money, no way! So, Logan and I went to the beach and took some carboard boxes, like usual, and took pictures with our 10 second timer. Logan has become a pro at setting the camera and running to get into position. We always get lots of looks and laughs from people walking by. When we went, there was another couple there taking pictures with a professional photographer, we definitely felt a little lame with our boxes and timer but I can honestly say we had more fun taking them our way. They would have turned out better if we had remembered to turn the flash on for some of them but it's a little too late now! :) We also aren't very good at posing and positioning ourselves. We kept looking over at the other couple to see how the professional guy had positioned them. haha. It was a lot of fun.



It was the most beautiful day for taking pictures! Overcast with the sun shining through in spots... so pretty.
I know this one is a little drowned out. I really need to try and edit some of these with photoshop but I haven't quite yet learned how to use it.



So handsome!

The pictures turned out great! But I think it would have been so funny to see the camera set up on boxes. I'm with you, why spend money when you've got boxes and a timer? You could even have your mom be your photographer next time she visits.

you really shouldn't give away your secrets. I totally thought you'd paid big money for those pics. You guys look amazing. you picked the perfect outfit to go with the feel of the ocean, clouds, etc.. and you look WAY too good to pregnant! You know that means you should have like 10 kids, right? I'm excited for baby! The last month is so hard to wait through. Enjoy your last 4 weeks of sleep and sanity! Love ya! Tara
