Mommy and Me Monday: Leave it to the pros.

These are images from our family photos taken this spring.

When I told my husband we were going to get professional photos taken, his reply was, "But you take great photos." Why, yes, yes I do... however, I am never in them. Photos I take in the mirror of myself with the kids are not necessarily the best ones.

And that is why I wanted to invest on someone else being behind the lens... and it was absolutely worth it. She caught some great candid images of me with all 3 girls (these with my baby are some of my favorite.)

And so, my little lesson for the day is... save, splurge, invest... do what you gotta do to have some professional photos taken once in awhile so that all members of the family can be in front of the camera at once.

  10. I'm thinking she'll have to come out again next spring! I love the idea of having a yearly session. Next time there will be no mishaps with crazy Joe though!

  11. I have the same problem (plus the pics I do take are pretty amateur, though I get lucky). And when I hand Hubs the camera, I just can't make a natural face when I know he's taking a picture.

    We've had a gift certificate to Picture People for over a year. Thanks for the reminder to use it! Should also bug my photographer friend to get some more pics of us outside.

    Your shots came out beautiful!!
