Family Photo Session

Okay, we did it. I was stressed the entire time, the kids were hungry, tired and emotional and the Isaak was...well perfect as usual. We did the shoot in Deep Ellum which is a part of downtown Dallas and it was really fun with all the different colored backgrounds. Amy was amazing, as usual, and managed to find several good shots of the family and kids regardless of the two crying sessions we had from Miah and Kora. I'm definitely happy with the outcome but now I need help picking which family pic is the best. Go to Amy's photography blog and help us pic! You can comment there or here, I'll check in both places and be sure to be really specific about which is your favorite so I'll know which one you're talking about.
Thanks friends!!

LOVE them! I saw them yesterday on Amy's blog. :) Favs of the entire fam are 1, 3, 6, 13. I would have NEVER known the kids were cranky...they all turned out great! And I love the clothing choices. Speaking of...where did you get your shirt...love that color!

Amanda said...

oh, man. before I even saw this on your blog I checked Amy's and said I couldn't pick a fav.! I need to go back and look again and see if I can:) You could not tell there were any fits at all! they turned out GREAT!

Amanda said...

My FAV of the entire fam would have to be #2 or # 3 I LOVE #1 one but Miah looks funny:) #2 shoes the great smiles more #3 is more artistic--like a mag. ad. Good luck!

Camilla said...

They all turned out spectacular! I love them. My favorite family shot is the one of all of you sitting infront of the blue wall. I can see why you are having a hard time choosing, they are all so good. Good luck! My second favorite is the one with all of you standing infront of the orange wall with Kora and Miah standing on the ledge holding those iron rods.

great pics...i love #3 and all the yellow background ones....

Valinda said...

okay i didn't count them but my favs are the parking meter one, the orange wall and Kora & Miah climbing and Izey in the foreground and everyone else fuzzy because he really should be the center of the universe with his huge blue eyes. You all look great in all of them! The layers worked well very gap commercial. :)

Okay, so I will go threw your pics with you one by one....

1. I LOVE this one! So cute of all the kids and you and Austin are HOT! One of my favorites.

2. This one is ALSO one of my favorites! Okay, so this one is my favorite...I think....I love Kora's Gap pose!!! Such a supermodel. And I love Miah's look on his face! He's trying to look hard! And Jake just looks so cute! Love his smile! And again, both you and Austin look HOT!!!!

3. Okay, so I'm thinking that this one is my favorite....no really, I LOVE this one....the kids look so cute hanging on the bars! And then with you and Austin and Izey.....so cute!!!!

4. Awesome pic of Jake! Love his outfit. You did a great job picking all of their outfits out!

5. Love Miah's smile!

6. This one is really cute! But the others are still my favorite! I love how your holding Izey in this one!

7. Okay, so did your kids now that you and Austin are about to make another baby behind them? Get a room!!!! Haha! Austin is really into his kiss with you! I love your shirt by the way! This pic makes me laugh for so many reasons....I love how Izey is trying to pull at Kora's fur and Jake is smiling trying to hold his butterball brother and Miah is not quite sure what is going on. Kora looks beautiful in this pic!

8. So cute! Izey's eyes are amazing!!! I think that Emma-Kay is going to have alot of fun starring into them when they get older.

9. So cute of Kora! She could be a model no kidding...for the Gap!

10. This is my favorite one of her though. She is just beautiful!

11. Cute one of you all running! You almost look like your wanna-be of the girl on the treadmill.

12. Love Austin's hand placement! If your right eye was open more, it would be way cute! Your such a beautiful couple!

13. Another one of my favorites! I love the backround color! Your family looks good with blue. I love Izey's leg warmers in this one. It shows them off!

14. Another good one!

Okay, so I gave you all my opinions! I'm not sure if I could pin point a "favorite" though. Your sister did an AMAZING job!!!! We'll talk about it once you finally get home!!!!

Lindsay said...

i don't care what you say...these turned out REALLY CUTE. get over the weird smiles and embrace the cuteness that your family possesses even when they curl their top lips.

Anonymous said...

I didn't count them either but i love the one with Kora and Miah climbing up the window and the rest of you down below... I think it is different.. and i love the blue background ones. I think the whole family looks good with that color. Dana

Tara and family said...

Whoa, they are amazing! I love so many of them! I want a picture of my family with Bill and I kissing in the background too. :) I can't decide which one is my fav, they are all fantastic! I am so insanely jealous! We have NEVER had professional pics taken of our family, and the only ones of the kids are their school pics, not even baby photos. I need an Amy in my family!

Heidi said...

Unbelievable - girlfriend, you got style!!! All your little 'accessories' you were collecting made them so unique!! The backgrounds are amazing and your sister has some TALENT!!! Those are my kind of family portraits....the best I have seen in a long time!! LOVE THEM ALL!!!

Froggylady said...

I LOVE the sneaky kiss background one. But for an official family picture I like the one with the parking meter. It shows everyones personality while still being posed.

I also really like the one with Izey in the foreground, his blue eyes just pop! Plus he looks like he's trying to get away from you crazy people because his family has gotten stuck in a Gap ad. :)

Chris likes the first one with the blue wall.

andi said...

You got some talent in your family! Those are GREAT!!! I really like the one with the bright blue background...but seriously, how can you choose just ONE?

David and Teresa said...

Mutha loves them ALL.

Bonnie said...

Well, I'm sure you never get tired of hearing this... but they all were fabulous! I really like the orange one with with the window climbing. My fave is the 13th one, the one with the blue background, everyone looks great and Izey looks like an extra on the set of Flashdance. That one! I loved it!

Jess said...

Yipee! I think the blue one is getting the most votes. Although really you couldn't go wrong with any. I think you should blow up like ten prints and put them in your house to parade your family's untouchable style and phot-a-bility. (I learned the whole making up words thing from you! Do you like it?)

GDR said...

The blue background.........with the tilt on it, and the one with you and hubby kissing in the back.
Love those two the most

Misty said...

They are just all so WONDERFUL!!!! Can you come dress my family when we travel to see Amy?!

Jess said...

I'm waiting for the post about girls' night... What the heck? You said Tuesday by the latest.

Laura said...

oooh, loved them all. but i vote blue background too. Next year I may have to pay her a million dollars to deal with us and do ours. but we'd be the ugly family on her website...

Paige said...

Blue background, all the way. Especially the first blue background shot. LOVE THEM!

Marnie said...

Beautiful photos! They are all amazing, but I especially love the one where you are all seated infront of the blue wall. I also really like the one where Kora and Miah are hanging off the bars infront of the window. What a beautiful family! I love the bright outfit choices as well. I think I am sometimes too conservative in my photo color choices.

SM said...

Are you kidding me with all these comments?! Your family is gorgeous and so are the photos!!!
