I had been planning to do snowy, wintery family pictures this year but since we didn’t really have any snow we didn’t get the chance to take them.
Then I decided to do some dressy, urban family pictures downtown. It was two weeks away and I needed to get all of us a haircut and an outfit.
Then one Sunday morning Rob told me in passing that he rode his bike next to a cool meadow in full bloom with poppies. I decided right then and there that we were going to be spontaneous and take our family pictures that evening in the meadow, old outfits, untrimmed hair and roots, and all.
I wanted to keep it as low key as possible so it was a fun event rather than a stressful one. Well…it wasn’t exactly fun but it could’ve been worse. It would’ve been a lot easier if the meadow wasn’t full of a dozen other photographers and families with the same bright idea.
Regardless of the crowds we still got some really cute shots. I love how my kids’ personalities SHINE!
Cara was in a really good mood at first and came up with her poses all herself. She’s such a doll!
