photo shares

Just wanted to share some photos that my friend, Maggie Holmes, took of our family... I literally started crying when I got to the photos of Avery & Quincey. I think the emotions were stirred for a couple reasons... Maggie did all the hard work for me, ha. I didn't have to run around bribing and forcing them to listen to me. :P I got to sit back and enjoy the show. But mostly because she captured their personalities completely! I love the one of just Avery because it is SO her--with that sneaky, silly, joyful smile. It's like she's already conjured up in her mind something rambunctious to do once she's done posing.
Classic one above: Daddy making us laugh, Avery wondering what's funny & looking up at Dad (daddy's girl), Quincey content sucking her thumb.
Maggie did an amazing job-thanks! There's more on her blog too...

I'm just wondering where you shot these pictures! They are BEAUTIFUL.. looking for ideas for backgrounds for my family pictures. It looks like the old Cafe Pierpont location...but i'm not sure on the window scenes... If you could let me know, that would be GREAT!
Thanks!

What beautiful pics! Maggie is so talented. Where did you get that darling dress?? I LOVE it! We are taking a trip in a few weeks and that is the sort of thing I am looking for to wear. You have a lovely family (and how does it feel to wake up to your own "Matthew McConaughey" every day? ;-)

Asha said...

So I went to Target and saw Avery's top and bought it...I was there for something else but isn't it funny how the Law of Attraction works? I still want to know where her skirt is from and your dress...so cute!

Stacy Milford said...

Heather said...

I LOVE these family shots; they do perfectly capture your personalities...so much better than a formal studio shot!

I love that you let Avery wear her rainboots. Adorable.

And Q's dimples? Scrumptious!

Can't wait to see the scrapbook pages you make out of these pics!
