WW: M Family Pics '13

On Sunday, we made our way to Prophecy Creek Park, just north of Philly, for our annual family session with the wonderful Steph, of Stephanie Glover Photography.  

Now, I'm going to be honest... when we left the park an hour after we arrived, I didn't think we'd get very many decent pictures out of the session.  And not because of Steph, obviously... we all know how talented she is.  But because of the fact that it was cold, WINDY LIKE WHOA {my hair was everywhere, let me tell ya} and the kids were just not having it.  Especially Brynn, who flat out refused to get in any pictures, especially those that included her two brothers. And we actually had the opposite problem with Carter who wanted to be in ALL THE PICTURES.  All of them.  Poor kid had to be physically removed from some of them. 

As we drove home on Sunday, I looked over at Bob and said that I'd basically call the entire session a success if we got one good family picture out of it.  Bonus if we got one of each of the kids.  Obviously not together... Brynn made sure of that.  Ahem.

So, you can imagine my surprise when I get an email on Monday night from Steph with a total of 60 pictures from our session.  Sixty.  What?  I expected four.

Steph, I can't thank you enough, once again, for your amazing work.  You're the best ever.

Here are just some of my favorites from our session this year...

I still wish it wasn't so damn windy {Bob may or may not have been injured by my hair during this shoot} but I just love the way these turned out.  If you're in the Philly area and looking for a miracle worker a great photographer, don't forget to check out Stephanie Glover Photography!

And for those interested, here's a link to the outfits we wore for this session... so glad I changed it to the grey and purple, I just love this color scheme with the fall foliage!

Happy Wednesday!

They look awesome. I love the purples. And the ones in front of the water are especially cute. What a great tradition you have to get these every fall.

Looking at pictures of your kids is kind of like watching an episode of Friends. You know what I mean. All throughout the episode you'd find yourself saying, "Joey is totally the best character on this show." And then a few minutes later, "Rachel is hilarious...best character hands down." Followed by similar comments about Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, and Ross as the thirty minute show ticked by. Same thing here. As I scrolled down the post I thought to myself, "Reid is the cutest of Jenni's kids." But then there was perfectly adorable Brynn...and little man Carter. And I'm sure baby IV will be just as cute! You and Bob just make ADORABLE kids!

The one with Carter's head on your chest and hand on your belly is my absolute favorite! Steph truly captured a precious moment with that one!!
