Family pictures!


We had a great time at Portrait Innovations today!  They had a photographer and a ‘child wrangler’ and all the kids did great!  I have been pleased by their staff both times that we’ve gone, and the prices are SO MUCH better than the other places we’ve been that have ‘comparable’ service. 

My parents came along today as well (I was at their house when I made the appt yesterday and we were thankful for their help!). 

Enjoy! :)

In no particular order… (Family pic’s, pic’s of the 6 kids, and photos of James are all on the MyNormalFamily blog…)

**Emma is not walking, but she can stand stationary for a few seconds and even will occasionally move a foot to take a step or two when she loses her balance!  These are the first pic’s of her standing alone and we are so proud of her!  As you can see, I wasn’t far away ;)


  1. I love that you can see your knees in the picture. Its a neat reminder of her growth and relationship with you.

    And all of the other pictures capture the kids personalities perfectly!
