Fleshy and Beautiful.



























........................

I struggle with words to express the amount of emotion I feel when I look through these photos.

It's us, all of us. Together, and documented.

Does anyone else struggle with the decision to get your photos done because, say, you're still 20 pounds over your normal weight? Well, just get them done. You just have to suck it up (and suck it in) and own it, because after all, this is your family.

Once you get over your appearance you will adore adore adore the photos!!!!

Truly love!

Thanks to my brother Jared and wife Lynn who drove around with us to find a spot and worked hard to do this for us.

Lillie won out and got her binkie back temporarily... and if you look closely, you can see Matilda's two (new) bottom teeth!

I looooooooooooove my family. And know how INCREDIBLY lucky I am. All those cheeky little things, they all belong to me.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Can i borrow your bro to help me document my family? You guys don't take a bad picture and these are so fun to look at. And I sometimes think the outtakes are the funnest. Great family and yes, they are all beautiful. Pictures are great at reminding you of that, huh?

What a beautiful family! I still remember the family photos with Lillie on your hip like it was yesterday. It's so crazy how fast time goes!

I can't believe Matilda has two teeth already. No teeth from her birthday buddy yet.

Sarah--my very favorite is the one of you and Matilda with her head thrown back! OHHH. And then I love the ones of you and Jake. How often does one actually take a picture with one's spouse? Never. :) They are really priceless.
