I love a family portrait.
As a photographer, I have completely lovely intentions of getting regular family photos... is just doesn't happen.
I've learned I can't be picky. Unless I'm willing to pay a pro (which I'm not), so here is what you get:
I actually really love the menagerie of oddness taking place in this photo. It is SO... us.
"Menagerie" definition: an unusual and varied group of people.
Take the parents for instance. It looks like we've been parenting so long together that we are actually a two-headed parenting combo. Actually, I was trying to hide my post-pregnancy body behind my super man. I was mostly successful... I have a head, one hand and two fairly chubby knees.
Emma scores points for "best impersonation of the character on her t-shirt."
Pretty sure she wasn't trying for that award which makes her expression even more spectacular.
Mandy was channeling her inner cranky super-model.
With Mandy's crazy height, natural beauty, and tendency toward diva-ish-ness, we pray hard and train continuously to ensure she knows Jesus and His standards for life.
Our Mr. Rem. He has no idea how to look at a camera when the person usually taking the pictures is curiously holding him.
Jeff's t-shirt says, "Life is good" and Tommy is striking a pose.
4 weeks old and he is the best looking among us.
Oh how I love this awesome family.
