First Time for Everything


We had our first ever family portraits done a few weeks ago.  I'm super excited with how they turned out.  I'm so happy to FINALLY have a family pic for our living room, not to mention some awesome shots of the kids and our whole family. I really wanted to sneak one in before we have teenagers with puffy noses, zits and attitude.  We loved our photographer!  Check her out (and us) on her Blue Lily blog and portfolio site.  She is incredibly talented.

Those are beautiful! You have a gorgeous family! I can't believe you've never had a family picture done. My husband gets annoyed, but I can't go longer than a year without a new updated picture.

I absolutely love these pictures. I love that your dressed all in white too. And the background is awesome. She is a really good photographer, but your all photogenic, so it was easy to take.

Absolutely Gorgeous!! LOVE the photos!!

I'm glad to know there is someone else out there that hasn't had a family portrait taken either! I take so many cute photos of my kids all the time and every once in awhile we have someone snap a "family photo" of us, but I really need to have a professional photo taken of us. I just hate to spend the money.

The setting is absolutely beautiful and with the background and you all being dressed in white it looks heavenly!

How would it be to have such a handsome family and have everyone be so photogenic! You are one sharp and good looking family!

Kimmie said...

PS...your comment about getting a family photo taken before you had teenagers with zits, puffy noses and attitudes was hilarious!

You always had some kind of funny humor to your posts! Love your attitude!

I can't believe that is your first family portrait...my kids would love it if you were their mom...they get so sick of family pictures!!! Your family is beautiful and the pictures are gorgeous.

I absolutely LOVE your pictures!!! TO DIE FOR! The setting is exactly why I love living out here, it's green and breathtakingly beautiful.

She's got talent!!

Lisa and Bill said...

Amazing pictures! I love them! Such a fun setting too. Beautiful!

Super Duper Gus said...

Wow, Jen and Nick have a beautiful family? I am so shocked ( please read thick sarcasm!) I love these photos, and of course the setting makes me terribly nostalgic. So nice!

Do you have any idea how ridiculously gorgeous your family is?? If barbie were a curly-haired brunette and Ken were way more handsome...you and your husband would be them!!!

Laura said...

Jen! It was so good seeing you and chatting with you at Ashley's reception. You look amazing!!! Which was really no surprise cause you are always a tiny fox. I love your family photos. I have checked out blue lilly's stuff in the past- i also think she is SO TALENTED- I really love her style. She really took some incredible photos of you guys. What a beautiful family you have. I can't get over how big everyone has gotten!

Wow i could have sworn I commented on these. They look fabulous. The camera loves you guys, and what a beautiful place. I cant wait to see what you do with them. I am going to have to sign up next time she comes.

On another note: It's time to update

Thanks for sharing. I hear you about family photos. Miles apart from family doesn't help. We had one at Jayne and Jon's wedding and I felt I could die the next day and my life would be complete. I have no hopes of ever doing it again. Aunt Nancy
