Family photos 2011

A few weeks ago Ruth from Swartzendruber Photography came over on a Sunday afternoon when we were all home and took our family pictures.

You can take a look at them here.

Ruth is wonderful to work with, and I think she did a great job. As I recall, the warehouse setting was her idea.

The color scheme was Amy's idea and she told us all what to wear.

To all you young moms who hate having family pictures taken--in a few years it will be all different. Your daughter will outfit everyone, and they will all do what they're told, and it'll be a fun afternoon for everyone, and no one will cry or pick their noses.

I love this stage of life.


  1. i hate to break it to you, but that's not really true. the ages in my family range from 22 to 10 and its the biggest fight in the world to get family pictures taken. i'm the daughter and you couldn't pay me to outfit everyone. it's not worth the fight.

  2. To Anonymous--I am very sorry to hear our experience is not universal.

  3. I'm certainly happy for you, but at this point that doesn't even seem to be in the realm of possibility!

  4. Gorgeous! My son and daughter-in-law dressed for Easter and when they stood together I just kept clicking. Got a couple of good ones. The kids are 4, 2 1/2, & 1. We'll see if it happens next year

  5. The pictures are stunning!! Great smiles, great colors and great photography!
