Family Photo

Remember the impromptu photoshoot our friend did for us on Friday?

Famiia Mea

Turned out pretty well, all things considered. And I don't even think I look *too* fat, though I still think these pictures are a nice impetus for buckling down on my long-lost diet. My unruly hair behaved, and we all look fairly put together.

And WHY earth are we so picky about photos? Especially of ourselves? (Notice I'm only worried about how *I* look in the pictures.)(Because everyone else looks wonderful, naturally.)

I'm thankful to have these pictures.

They make me happy.

  5. Beautiful photos. I think I want one of your girls to marry one of my boys. It could totally work... their ages line up and everything. :)

  7. So lovely! What a cute family. And I agree. It's so lame that the first person we ALWAYS look at in a photo is ourselves. Or maybe it's just me. And for the record I'm still DYING over the appearance of my bright orange and totally exposed torso in the family picture in the TOFW article. I do NOT look like that. Surely I do not look like that... :)

  8. Simply beautiful. You, I mean. (and your family, too, I guess.) But you're right about that tendency to look at ourselves. I've never denied being totally vain.

  15. Beautiful! I love all the leaves and wish desperately we had a fall. It was 92 when I picked Elodie up from school yesterday. We dragged the heat from AZ with us.
    BUt let it be known that I would much rather a dry heat over a humid heat. BLAH!

  18. Great photos! What a beautiful family. And I totally get it about worrying how you look in the pictures. I do the same thing. And am so hyper ctitical of myself.

  20. Lara - they are all beautiful!! I love the colors, I love what you all wore (which to me is the hardest part of any family photo).
    You have a gorgeous family!!

    Love these!!

  21. I love your photos! And you *YOU* look beautiful. But it is true, we do worry so much about how we look. Odd.

  23. Oh my goodness, I love the top one. It's so relaxed and loving -- AND THOSE LEAVES!!!!! Yay for fall family photos.

  24. These pictures are so beautiful! I just love them. We desperately need family photos done.

  25. I l.o.v.e. these photos! You all look fabulous (especially you, Lara!), and autumn is just the perfect time of year to take portrait photos. The light is so beautiful at this time of year, and all the warm colors complement you in such a lovely way.

    But I totally know what you mean—like you, I'm usually the one *taking* the photos, so I'm hyper-critical whenever I manage to find my way into the subject of a photo. Why do we always do that to ourselves?

    Gorgeous shots, Lara!
