3 weeks ago, we had our family pictures taken by my very talented and beautiful friend Elise. Dan and I were a little skeptical about how they would turn out because the only professional photos we have had taken of us were our wedding pictures. We did not like them at all, and were worried we're just not a very photogenic couple. How could I have doubted Elise and her mad photography skills? Both Dan and I got a little teary eyed when we saw the final product. I am being serious, we almost cried over pictures! They turned out better than we could have imagined.
Family picture day is always a little stressful. Something about finding coordinating outfits without being too matchy matchy, locating the right spot, and counting on the weather to be perfect wears me out. Dan and I had to re-assure Elise a few times that we are truly in love, despite a few 'discussions' we had in front of her. Yup, we're normal. However, I am so glad we went through the hassle. I am also grateful to have such a patient husband who is willing to go along with the cheesy poses.
