This Is Us

Our talented photographer friend, Taylor Stading, snapped a few pictures of our family just before guests arrived to Caroline’s birthday party a few weeks ago and they couldn’t have turned out more perfect. I’ve said this before but Taylor is truly magical when it comes to capturing families. She has a handful of babies herself so she totally gets the attention span timing and has no problem being goofy and fun behind the camera to get a smile out of our kiddos. Anyway, a few of my favorite photos…

True story: we are perfectly positioned to cover the worst couch stains for these pictures.

Following through on our photo session bribe. 

And that’s a wrap!

    These pictures are adorable! And I actually laughed out loud at your couch stain comment, because right before I read that I was having serious couch envy! (We have 3 kids and a dog, so our couches are covered in stip-up stains, sticky hand stains, and dog hair…someday I'll buy a pretty new couch!)
