Mother's Day 2013.

Yesterday morning I was lying in bed listening to the clanking of dishes as Ryan and the children prepared my Mother's Day breakfast. I was enjoying the extra few minutes of solitude, thinking of those precious ones that have made me a mother when suddenly I had a sinking feeling in my stomach. I realized something that made me feel very sad. You see, I haven't been very good about taking individual pictures with the kids. In fact, I couldn't even remember the last time we'd done it.

I decided right then and there I would do better. I would stop shying away from the camera and hand it off to Ryan a little more often. After church we called the kids into the family room and spent 10 minutes snapping away.





After each of the kids had a turn we tried our darndest for a group shot. Unfortunately we were all a little tired + hungry by that point. There were even some tears shed.



Are you good about taking pictures with your children? If so, share you secrets!

  7. Great idea! I am very good about taking pictures of my kids with everyone else BUT myself. We do an annual family photo shoot for this very reason, but you've inspired me to do it a bit more often. Thank you! Your family is gorgeous!

  11. I love your family. And I love that you wore a corsage. I really wanted to but when I requested it Ryan said, "Is that a thing anymore? Don't only old ladies do it?" Next year will be my year!
