Family Pictures


I 'm so excited to share a photo session that my photographer friend and fellow blogger, Alyssa—from Alyssa Anne Photography and Sieb Fam—recently had with our family. I've had the privilege of working with Alyssa over the past few months on a number of projects, and I've been amazed by her ability to effectively and gracefully juggle her business, her art, her love for adoption, and her family. She is one talented woman.

I love the way Alyssa uses her lens to capture the beauty of normal moments. I think the fact that she often does her sessions in clients' homes also adds to the integrity of her work. Plus, she is awesome with kids—mine aren't the easiest to control, especially when they have to sit still for pics, but she definitely brought out the best in them.

I knew Alyssa would probably want to use our bedroom for the shoot, since it gets fantastic afternoon lighting, so I used the session as my deadline for wrapping up a few unfinished projects, like the jewelry box, the wire light over the bed, new paint for our walk-in closet and the mirror. Considering that the mirror isn't really a mirror now, we left it out of the pictures.

So without further ado, here are some of my favorites...
