Family Photos.

With these two little words do you rush for a carton of cigarettes and a bottle of liquor?

I have to admit that typically I find them a little stressful.

Sure…easy to get the three kids coordinated and looking good…but throw me and my husband in the mix and it can be a nightmare.

Our last family photos were 2 1/2 years ago. 

I needed a drink. Two out of the three were crying. One child was sucking on her shirt…which she was really too old to do. 

So.  We took a little break from family photos. I thought I would be good for the rest of my life just taking photos of myself with my children (to prove I existed in their childhood).

I thought I would be fine with that until I saw the beautiful photography of Cathy Walters.

She lives about 30 minutes from us and I started THINKING…only thinking about trying this whole family photo stuff again.

A few months ago I finally decided to give it a try.  We booked a date and this Monday she met us in our town.

No tears.

No stress.

We laughed. A lot.

She even let me change my clothes a few times (so did Maddy).

She took over 1,000 photos of our little family and she is currently in the process of getting a portfolio together for us to chose from.

But she was so kind to give us just a peek from our Monday shoot.  








I can't tell you how excited I am to see the rest!!!

I have already told you numerous times that I am not patient!!! 

Cathy was so fun to work with and I even had the privilege of having a little time with her after the shoot.  After Kelly took the kids home…Cathy and I ate at Dream Pastries…an amazing French restaurant in town, had our lattes and even looked at antiques.

If you are ANYWHERE near Denver you really need to give her a call!  I will let you girls see more when I do!!

Isn't she amazing???
