Family Pictures

A very good friend did our family pictures for us this year. I couldn't have been happier with them!

Rose - 7

Beth - 5
Grace - 3         

My girls got to dress up in old fashioned dresses for part of the shoot. The Beth and Grace (the younger two) are wearing dresses my great-grandmother made for me when I was little. Rose is wearing a beautiful dress her grandparents bought for her in Williamsburg. 

And this one just captures their personalities amazingly well!

This is another of my un-posed favorites!

I really love the new style of photography. I like posed pictures, but there is something so natural about the photography trends right now that appeals to me. These were shot at a beautiful state park close to our home with historical buildings. I already have ideas for next year...


  1. Great photos! Love the family pic at the top...such a pretty setting. We just had our family pictures too. Lots of fun!

    1. It was beautiful! We've been sick for the last month and had to postpone until the first weekend of December. We ended up with a beautiful day!

  2. Beautiful photos - what a blessing you have in those three beautiful girls! :)

    1. They are sweet little blessings! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. How sweet that your girls get to wear your dresses that are now family treasures.
