My girl, Shari, somehow found some time in her short stint home (amid all of her travelling adventures) to take our family photos for us. Even though she doesn’t take family photos (much) anymore, she is super patient and has a wonderful eye.
We took the photos at the Frog Pond, which is part of Fleming park off Purcells Cove Road. It was a beautiful, mild fall afternoon so we took a few photos, then wandered along the trail that goes around the frog pond. I got beautiful family pictures and the super sweet bonus of hanging with Shari while she was home… win win for me.
These are my faves from the shoot…
This one smells like a Christmas card.
There’s a bigger one! We were doing everything from whistling to singing to joking to talking about poop (come on … they’re boys. Nothing is funnier than poop!) to get Emery to smile. Oliver was (a bit surprisingly) very cooperative in the picture-taking process. He did everything Shari asked of him, played with Eleanor, and even tried to get Emery to smile with us.
How is it possible he is this big?! At least once I week I just stop and watch him doing whatever he’s doing and am dumbfounded by his size, his smarts, his maturity, and who he is in general. My sweet girl! She didn’t want to sit still long, of course, but that’s okay. These pics are definitely capturing her and her sweet self.
Thank you, Shari, for once again capturing our family for us! We love you!
