A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to get some family pictures taken. In the 10 years Jamie & I have been married, never had we had our picture taken professionally. Even when we began to have kids, we weren’t motivated to have family pictures taken. Now, don’t get me wrong, we have pictures in our house of our kids and of one another, but we have never had pictures professionally done. I was pretty excited about the opportunity and a little apprehensive at the same time because you never know how your kids will respond to having their picture taken. We packed our little family into our red Ford Flex and headed out to Jamie’s parents new property. We choose this location for a few reasons, but the biggest reason was the enormous maple tree they have in the middle of their property. Bree Mader was our photographer. She was amazing! We had never met her before, but as soon as we met her, we hit it off. She did a great job keeping us organized and our kids interested in having their pictures taken. As I look through the photos now, I would say by the looks on my kids faces that they enjoyed themselves. It was a great experience. We just received the finished photos yesterday. We were all excited to see the finished product. As I began going through the pictures, I was reminded how powerful a picture can be. I looked at each picture intently as I didn’t want to miss a thing. Pictures serve as a reminder of a special moment in time. No one, not even cancer can steal from us the joy that we experienced that day on the family farm. We will always have these pictures to point us back to a moment in time where nothing else mattered except for us being together as the Sabourin family. To check out more of the photos, click here.
Do you take family photos on a yearly basis? Do you have any funny stories of when you were having family photos taken?
