Family Photos – completely worth it

June 20th, 2013

I posted a few weeks ago about having family pictures taken (and our outfits). We got back some sneaks today and they are so incredibly beautiful!


Our photographer Michelle of Clover & Mustard could not have done a better job. She uses actual film for her photography and it just brings a quality of depth that I miss from digital photography. We’re so happy that she could take our photos and preserve these precious and fast-paced days.


Getting ready and being willing to take family photos can be a lot of work, and cost a chunk of change. But putting in the effort is worth it. Having these photos forever will be worth it. ¬†Whether you’re 7 months post-baby, and haven’t worked out in 3 years, or you are in the best shape of your life, it is worth it to document your family. So don’t wait thinking you’ll take pictures next year or when you hit your goal weight. Just do it now and you’ll thank yourself a million times for it.

I’m also making the vow to actually order prints and hang up picture in our house as part of my “get the pictures off my computer” initiative. I think these will look amazing in our new house.

To see more pics from our shoot – check out Clover & Mustard.

    Great pictures Jen! You’re so right about just taking the pictures in spite of (or possibly to document) the imperfections. You look fabulous!
