Family Pictures–Making memories last a lifetime

PB&J family pictures
When is the last time you had a professional photographer take your family pictures?  If it’s been longer than a year, I strongly suggest you start planning on getting a session done soon!  I am quite lucky that my best friend since 6th grade is one of the most amazing photographers I know and she takes our family pictures whenever we get back to Minnesota for visits.  Her business is Ashley J Tyler Photography and she is an amazing lifestyle photographer.

She has done a handful of sessions for us over the years since Jackson was born, but over the past couple years we don’t get back to MN as frequently so our sessions have been cut down.  We did one session last August with her and this was one of my favorite shots from that session.  It was the last family shot we really have of just the three of us (actually little Makenzie is tucked away in my belly but you can’t really tell I’m pregnant even).

Well we were able to get back up to Minnesota over Memorial weekend and did our first family of 4 photo shoot and I am just in love with all the pictures we got!! If you follow me on Facebook you’ve already seen a few handful of them but I wanted to share a few more with ya.

Ashley asked me what kind of background setting I wanted for this session and we tend to go back and forth of our sessions between “nature” or “industrial”.  I knew our clothing was a little brighter in color and wanted a background that would enhance that too and she immediately knew this yellow wall would be perfect and I LOVE the punch of color it adds!

When I saw the pile of pallets I just had to have some pictures in front of them!  Too perfect for us!

I treasure these pictures, plus all the other sessions and pictures Ashley has been able to capture for us.  I’m also SO happy that modern photography has come light years from what “family pictures” used to be! 
I may be bias but I sure do think we’re one cute family!
