Summer Family Photos 2009

This is the post you've all been waiting for--our family pictures! I'm being sarcastic but actually since you helped me pick our outfits, I thought you might want to see how they turned out. My friend Jill took the photos and I'm so happy with them.

Jill has the most amazing pictures on her blog. The crazy thing is that she and I have the same camera--I bought mine because her pictures were so beautiful--even her everyday photos. But, my photos look nothing like hers--it just goes to show that the camera does not make the picture. Jill just stated taking pictures professionally and you can visit her website Day Tew Day Photography. As a side note, Jill is the mother to triplets (two girls and a boy) who are 5, and two other little boys. I've known her since kindergarten and I just adore her. So without further ado, here are our photos:

The photos look great! I love the clothes you picked out for everyone, and think Sammie skirt is enviable. What girl (little or not) could resist such a skirt?

Magdalena said...

Brooke this is GROGEOUS!!!! Hey, on a side note, I'm giving away some cute headbands on the ole' bog. Your sister was drawn out of the hat last time - who knows maybe this time it could be you!

I love Sammie's skirt...I want to be a little girl again so I can wear a skirt like that. Way cute pictures!

Lisa Cannon said...

Your pictures are beautiful!!!!

Liz said...

Will you outfit my family next time I do pics? I hate doing that. They are so cute. How fun are those of Sammie? You should put her in modeling....plus she's got the diva attitude to be a top model!

Liz said...

also.....Luke looks so much like Uncle Harold. It's really cute!

Amy M. said...

I love them! That black and white one of Sammie is especially darling.

Pictures look awesome. Well worth the stress. Sammie is killing me in those pictures. Don't tell me you don't just love them.

Amen Amen Amen.....

Really beautiful family! ...and clothes. I love the colors.

What kind of a camera is it?

sheryl said...

ps. I see trouble comming when Sammie hits about 13...guys will be asking her out and you will go prematurely grey! Lucky you are Blonde! I would kill for her hair!

Alexandra said...

Those are great! You guys all look awesome.

The Reynolds Family said...

How do you pick out the clothes for your family pics?!! I swear every year your family pics get better and better and I want to mimick them every year, but just don't have that much style to get it all together and as uniquely as you do..hats off...you seriously need to go in to the business of dressing peeps for their pics!

Hi. You don't know me. But, I was at D-Dawg's blog and then I ended up on yours this morning. And I love the pictures! But even more your dress and sweater and SO pretty. I would love to know where you found it (If you don't mind telling me.) :)
