Family Portrait Reveal

These 5 photos are a ‘sneak peek’ from our photographer at Studio 23.  Wednesday I will view ALL the poses taken.  {Can’t wait!}  So far I think my favorite is the last one of us standing.

Which one is your favorite?

Come back tomorrow to see the tropical destination where we spent Thanksgiving last week.  It is a perfect destination for a family! 😀

This is no ordinary family,

Favorite Outdoor Family Portrait Poses

I’ve been an avid weather watcher for the past week.  I’m not normally.  You see…I’m scared to say it because I tend to be a little superstitious about certain things.  If you have been following me for a while you will know 2 things for sure about me:

1. I LOVE photography.  {I especially LOVE family portraits.}

2. We haven’t been able to have an outdoor family photo shoot ever, due to RAIN! 🙁

Please pray that our photo shoot scheduled for tomorrow, Wednesday, November 16th will be RAIN FREE.  As of 2 days ago the weather iPhone icon showed a sun!  Then yesterday the sun icon had a cloud on top of it.  This is completely fine, as long as today’s rain drop icon doesn’t drizzle into Wednesdays.  Yes, it’s supposed to rain today, but tomorrow it is NOT.  Unfortunately, weather is so unpredictable!  Prayers are greatly appreciated. 😀

On to the GOOD stuff…here are some of my favorite OUTDOOR family portrait poses:



1. Blue Lily Photography

2, 3 & 4. Simplicity Photography

5. Kristen Duke Photography

6. Ashlee Raubach Photography

7. Studio 23

I’ll conclude with our family portrait done over 3 years ago by Studio 23:

Family Portraits ROCK,

Prayers & Positive Thinking

We are supposed to drive {3-4 hour trip} to Texas for our family portrait today.

This awesome couple who own the well known company Blue Lily Photography are in Dallas.  Today is their last day there.  They live in California, but are traveling around the world to take photos. Sigh, sounds completely wonderful, huh?  Tomorrow they head to New York City.

Well, yep, it’s raining.

You may not know that EVERY time we try to get an OUTDOOR family portrait done, it rains.  So, yes, I want to cry.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our family to have these amazing photographers take our picture.  I know some of you are thinking, what’s the big deal?  Well, head on over to Blue Lily’s website and see, then you will understand.  They wrote on their blog and posted some photos of the ranch they have been shooting at this week.  You can see those here.

If after visiting their site

& you feel our plight,

say a prayer with all your might

for no rain tonight.

I’m utterly shocked I came up with that little rhyme! lol

Happy Wednesday,
