The first weekend in November, we had a fall family photo session to take pictures to use for our Christmas cards. Lauren was amazingly patient with two little boys who refused to take naps that day & ended up in sour moods. Not only did she extend our 45 minute session to almost an hour and a half, but she also managed to get some really nice shots.

I didn't know it at the time, but this would be the last time that we would pose as a family of four. It makes these photos incredibly special to me & I know they'll be special to our boys one day.

The two family shots we used for our Christmas cards:

I'm always the one behind the camera, so having shots of me and the boys together melts my heart.


 And one last sweet shot of baby Jack... I wish I'd gotten a few more of Liam but he was go! go! go!

 I know that money will be tight when I'm on my own, but I hope to be able to splurge and capture my growing boys each fall. Next year's photos will be a special way to show how much we've all changed.


  1. What beautiful memories for you AND your boys. I'm so glad you have these.

  2. Stefanie, I'm just catching up on all my blog reading. Just wanted to say that I am thinking about you and the boys right now. Hoping for good things going forward. The pics are beautiful.

  3. I just love these photos! They are beautiful.

  4. So beautiful. I'm glad you have these photos - and memories. xo

  5. Ah! They are so freaking cute! And gorgeous shots of all of you. That's a wonderful idea, making sure to document next year with just the same interest. Your boys are so clearly loved, I know that will shine through in all of the photos you take.

  6. Absolutely beautiful pictures. I kept your Christmas card and look forward to watch you and the boys grow from year to year. xo
