Family Pictures

These are the fun and cute pictures Brooke took of our family over Thanksgiving.
Of course a "photo shoot" with 2 young ones goes with some drama. Jeff's glasses got stepped on within the first 5 minutes, breaking the frames. Notice the sucker Syd is holding. I thought the sucker would keep her entertained for just a few minutes to get a couple decent pictures. Little did I realize, Jordyn would throw a fit because she wanted some. So they ended up sharing until it fell on the ground and became an asphalt and grainy sucker. But after 300 pictures brooke took, there are about 20 that turned out great. Gotta love making people smile when they don't want to. I love candid shots way better so here are a few of our family in a red phone booth.

What a cute picture. That one of you and Jeff looks so good! Believe me, we took about 500 pictures to get a good Christmas Card and ended up using individuals, because we still couldn't get one of all of them looking.

Those pictures are so great...I love candid shots as well. They capture something that "smiling pictures" just don't get.

You look like Brooke with your new dark hair. I've been wanting to get mine darkend too but it usually takes me like 3 years to get courage.

Love your family pictures! There is a red phone booth like that in St. George and I have always wanted to take pictures in it.

That story about the shots is so funny!

My girls have birthday that are three days apart. We always celebrate them together (I am sure Malachi will feel left out when he gets older) I know someday they will want seperate parties, but until then . . . we do it together!
