Family picturesPosted: October 11, 2010
Last month we had family pictures taken. You may wonder why we didn’t just wait until jr was born. Well, the Romgi wondered that too, but he was nice enough to humor me. I figured it would be nice to have new pictures done at the beginning of every school year, and then pictures of just the kids around Christmas time. There might have been an additional motive of not wanting photos of me with all that baby weight leftover after having jr – you’re meant to be bigger during pregnancy, so it seemed ok to take pictures now instead of later!
I spent a few months trying to find a photographer that was professional, affordable, and contemporary (read: not a portrait studio), and who would let us have the copyright to the images. I wasn’t interested in paying $10 for a single 5×7 print. Sorry, world. I eventually found Stowell Photography, and I’m so glad I did. The photographer, Jeremy, met all my requirements and was a lot of fun to work with.
So…want to see some pictures? There are a lot. If for some reason you don’t like looking at pictures of us (in which case, why are you reading my blog?) feel free to come back later.
And lastly, I’m including this one because I tried explaining to the photographer what an unnatural pose this was for me, and because the Romgi says I look “smug.” I say I’ve never looked smug a day in my life.
