Our Family Photos!

I can't believe I haven't shown these yet!  We had our photos taken by Sarah Knight, and Hayley Alberts.  I am so thankful they could come out and take our photos!!! These are precious treasures I will cherish forever and ever! Thank you girls SO much!!!  

We had our photos done in October (which by the way is the best time to get them done for leaves, fall foliage, and to get them done and ready before Christmas).We headed to just this end of the road random place that had decent leaves, and it worked out so well!  Claire on the other hand....was busy.  She would not sit still for more than .2 seconds, and refused to let us hold her for more than .3 seconds.  Basically all of us were just chasing her around.  There was just too much to explore, she didn't want her photo taken!  Such is the life of a two year old, and such is the life of a photographer photographing a two year old!  As diva as it sounds, I don't think these would have worked out without the two of them there!  Sarah mainly did the shooting, and sweet Hayley assisted by trying to help Claire and get her attention.  She had this amazing bird puppet that Claire thought was hilarious. Thank you thank you thank you Hayley for helping us corral Claire, and helping Sarah get a shot of Claire looking in the general direction of the camera. You were ah-mazing!  Thank you both SO much for doing this for us!!! We love all of the photos!!!

By Sarah.  This was quite typical of our shoot, Claire running away! I love how this one turned out though.

Hayley captured this moment of Brant being sweet to me, as always.
