It took 5 times, yes 5!, to get these family pictures done.
First, we had to reschedule because I thought I was going to be out of town.
Our 2nd appointment just happened to be on the day I was super sick in June. We decided since we only have family pictures taken like every 10 years, we should do it when I wasn't sick.
The 3rd & 4th time? It rained.
I was seriously ready to give up.
My brother was frustrated because he didn't want to take the pictures in the first place & was super annoyed that he kept asking off work for something that kept not happening.
I was tired of getting ready for nothing.
I almost gave up until my friend passed away unexpectedly & I remembered how important things like this are & kept working to get it done.
We finally got the pictures taken last Saturday & it was an absolutely gorgeous day!
We didn't do a bunch of poses or any outfit changes because I wanted everyone to be happy throughout the session & mostly just wanted a few shots of us together.
My brother ended up loving the photographer, Angie Jackson, & we got some great shots!
She's only shown us one so far
because she's a little tease & even though I definitely should've like moved my arm out & tilted my head down, I love the way my mom & brother look in it so I'm satisfied!
I can't wait to see the rest!
