Our Family of Three

I am obsessed with pictures.  In college, I was known as the Picture Queen, no joke on that one.  My friends would always rely on me to have my camera so they didn’t have to bring theirs.  I just love having something to look back on as life passes by.  As you grow up, you have your yearly school pictures, graduation pictures, engagement pictures, wedding pictures, maternity pictures, and then family pictures.  And I told Marv that I want to make it a point to at least take a couple family portraits a year.  Where we could stop being behind the camera (since Marv takes my outfit pictures and I usually take Austin pictures) once in awhile and be in front of it instead, as a family.  So, here’s a little recap of some of my favorite family (and some of just Austin) pictures from his first 7 months of life!

2 Month Photo Session with Ria Photograhy

If you couldn’t tell from these photos.  I adore Austin’s feet, a lot. Hence, all the feet pictures.  Gosh, he was so little and sleepy back then.

Austin’s First Wedding at 5 Months

Here’s some family photos (Austin at 5 months) from Maria (the photographer who took the above 2 month pictures) + Josh’s wedding.  I’m wearing my favorite In Love With Fashion dress I won from Hapa Time’s giveaway.  I used this template to make Austin’s mustache.  Thanks to InspireFashion&Photography for the tuxedo onesie!

Just had to throw in a few shots from their beautiful wedding, taken by the talented Alea Lovely.

Backyard Fun at 7 Months

Say Hello to Super Austin!  My Mom took these photos for us a few days before she left.  It’s always great to have family photos in your own backyard!

    hah! I was always considered as the picture person in college too! I probably have the most pictures from that time amongst my friends. I love taking pictures, such a great way to document special moments in life whether they are big events or just day to day. Your pictures of your family are precious!

    sandy i love all of these pictures, especially the one of your hands holding austin’s feet. your wedding ring is so pretty!
    we don’t do pics often enough. it’s tough to get the kids to cooperate. we at least do christmas, cuz christmas cards are a big deal around these parts! the stamp, a sticker or washi tape, the return address label….!

    I think you’ll love that you took the time for family portraits throughout his childhood–I know my mom is always pleased with how many snapshots she has to look back on now that I’m a sassy adult. (:

  7. August 15, 2012 / 12:31 am

    So sweet!! I love all your outfits in these, such lovely colors. Beautiful family 🙂

  8. August 15, 2012 / 12:49 am

    I think it’s so wonderful that you take family portraits every few months. It’s so nice to have those memories and it brings you back to those moments that, looking back now, you can’t even imagine your baby being that small. Thanks for sharing!
