Okay. I’ve got an awesome idea. Let’s all dress in denim, pile on top of each other, and smile really cheesy for our family photo. It’ll be perfect framed over our fireplace, don’t you think? Not to mention, it’ll make the most amazing Christmas card. All our friends and family will love it.*
Or if that looks a little weird, maybe we should all wear white tops, climb a tree, and straddle each other. Yup, that’s what we should do. And to make the pose perfect, I totally think we should all put our hands on our knees and say ‘family’ when the photographer tells us it’s time to smile.*
Or maybe, we should just dress the way we always dress, and do the things we always do, while the most talented photography team in Missouri and Kansas captures us just being us.
Josh and Jenny of Solar Photographers are an incredibly brilliant husband and wife duo who’ve been snapping photos of our family since Reichen was 7 weeks old.
Since then, Josh and Jenny have been there for all our most important moments, including both boys’ first steps, my big belly during my 2nd pregnancy; they even captured this sweet shot of my 2nd son just days after he was born.
I tell you all this because I’m super psyched about our latest session with Solar Photographers. I love that they just let us do what we do while they capture it all. There’s no posing, no placing hands on knees, and the best part: they never make us shout ‘cheese’ after the count of three.
If you want to see more from our session, Josh and Jenny have our highlights and so many other incredible photo shoots posted on their awesome blog. Enjoy!
