The photo session that almost didn't happen

On Saturday afternoon, we had scheduled a professional family photo session. My husband and I had bathed the kids, they'd had fresh haircuts, and we got them into some decent (i.e. clean) clothes for photographs. As we finished getting the boys dressed, we started calculating how much we were going to end up spending on these posed, formal portraits. Martin decided we should just skip out and have our own photo session, and we went with it. Let me just say, we got some PRICELESS poses for FREE! :)

Here are just a few of my favorites!

Have you been over to Pretty Scrappy lately? They are having a Quick Page Team Challenge. If you join the challenge, you will recieve 4 mini kits, coupons/gift certificates, AND a chance to join the Pretty Scrappy Quick Page Team or Creative Team (which is really cool because you will get TONS of free digiscrap items every month).

cute pictures! My friends and I trade taking pictures for each other. We'll go to a scenic spot, and I'll take a picture of her family, and at another time, she'll take pictures of me and my family. That way we are both in our family pictures (instead of behind a camera), and we have all the pictures on a cd to play around with as we want. I've never been disappointed,and the price is right!
