Family Portraits

This past weekend we got family pictures done at Otis and James.

Michael was a little cranky and wasn’t his normal playful self, Patrick wasn’t to big a fan of the flashing lights, and Tim and I were tired from a long night with Patrick but the pictures still turned out pretty good.

Here are a few sample pictures.

One Year Portraits/13 months old

Today we took Michael to get some portraits done for his one year. I know technically he is 13 months today and we we’re a little behind schedule, but it has been a busy month! Michael did pretty well, he wasn’t to impressed with the photographers trying to get him to smile. Tim was the only one who could get him to smile. I never thought Michael would be a shy boy, but maybe there is a shy streak in him after all. The pictures turned out pretty good but the photographer wasn’t able to get a real big smile out of him, however he is so dang cute that he looks good even without a smile. This experience makes me even more excited for the portrait session with Otis and James, I know they will take their time and make sure we get lots of good photos.

Jess and Kyle’s Wedding pics.

I must say I have never seen Kyle smile so big in a picture! Just the few that Otis & James posted on their blog look incredible. I can’t wait to see the rest. For those who know me, I have a tendency to exaggerate for dramatic effect (affect?) but take note that I am not exaggerating when it comes to how incredible hot it was that day! The wedding party was dripping with sweat and would wait in the air conditioned cars until it was our turn to take a picture, quick get out smile for the birdie and head back to the A.C.! You can’t even tell in the picture how hot we were, they look great. Check them all out

Jess and Kyle's Wedding

Otis & James did our wedding too (which was almost as hot as Jess and Kyle’s and the pics look great there too!), we have a few pics up on the website from our wedding. In fact, the picture of Tim and I at the top of our website was done by Otis and James. Tim also scheduled us to go in and take some portraits after the next baby comes. I can’t wait to go in and get them done, it will be great to have some really good pictures of the family. I know Michael will have a blast, he is such a ham and they do such a great job with kids.

Anyways, I must get back to our lazy vacation. We have a big day of nothing planned!
