Anyone else get that panicked feeling after taking family pictures? I start to wonder…did I pick out the right outfits? Should I have reapplied lipgloss halfway through? Was Nash’s hair in his face the whole time? Will we even get ONE good Christmas card photo?
I know, I’m crazy…but these are the kinds of questions I ask myself every. single. time.
And that’s where my good friend Ali comes in. I swear everything she touches turns to gold. I go from praying that we got at least one good picture–to wondering how on earth I could ever pick a favorite.
I know I say it every time we have our pictures taken…but goodness, I cherish these photos. They’re sweet memories, frozen in time. I can’t wait to look back on these some day. I know I’ll be grinning from ear to ear…
How’s that for a family photo overload?! Don’t worry, I did save ONE surprise. I couldn’t give away our Christmas card that easy 😉
Special thanks to Ali for capturing these precious photos. I adore them–and always will!
They are PERFECT! Love them so much!
They turned out so great! You have a beautiful family, friend!
Oh Vanessa, these pictures are stunning!

OMG, these pics are amazing! The family shots are great and seriously the Nash solos, steal the show!
These are all SO GOOD! Oh my gosh! How will you ever decide which to put in a frame, on canvas, and on the Christmas card?!
Were these taken in JoCo? It almost looks like the Flint Hills!
