Lundquist Family

This darling little family of 3 is about to become a family of 4 and they were brave enough to spend a STEAMY morning last week getting some pictures taken. An August morning in Louisiana is bound to be humid, that's for sure! But they were all troopers and we were able to get some great pictures. Little Anna Kate was such a sweetheart loving her baby doll, she is sure to be a wonderful big sister. I can't wait to meet the new baby girl!

Thalgott Family

And here we have my final photos from Idaho this summer. And what a way to end things! It was time to get an updated Thalgott family photo while we were there, so we did just that. If you've been following these Idaho posts, you are probably thinking 'wow, she has SUCH great relatives--on both sides!', and I couldn't agree with you more! I sure love these people. I am lucky to be a part of this family and am grateful for the time we were able to spend together. We certainly don't have a hard time making some great memories. Because, with four wild boys like these, it is a pretty easy thing to do!! Love you all!

And I have decided that the outtakes have been some of my favorite things from the family sessions in Idaho, so I have provided some below for your viewing pleasure. :) Let me just say, these four boys were full of energy this day! But boy, was it fun!!!

Kirwan Family

It's hard for me to even know what to say about these folks...I love them to pieces. This is my sweet sister-in-law and her beautiful family. I was lucky enough to take their pictures in Idaho, but I'm even luckier to be able to call them family. Hillary is one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out. And just look at this family of hers. Wowzers! I just love 'em...all of 'em! :)

Andersen Family

Next up from Idaho, we have my brother and his darling little family. I finally got to meet the newest addition to my side of the family, little Chase. And he did not disappoint! This babe was all smiles and seriously SO happy the entire time we were taking pictures. I think he liked me. :) We had a great evening with fabulous summer weather--I couldn't have asked for better!

My Family

Boy, oh boy...wasn't this fun?! (all of you family members are nodding in agreement, right?!) Here we have my ENTIRE family when we were all together in Idaho last month. It is a very rare occasion when every last one of us is there, so of course we figured it was high time for an updated picture. I think there were only 3 grandkids in the last family picture we had on the wall...now there are 15. Yes, that's right--15! All of them age 10 or under. So here we have 15 adults and 15 children and you can only imagine the craziness that ensued. But I really did think it was quite fun! Thankfully, I have a good tripod and we had a great helper so I could be in the picture too. I feel like it was nothing short of a miracle to have pulled this one off. :) And of course here are a few others from our day!

My "baby" brother who is almost 17...craziness I tell you!

And because I am a glutton for punishment, I post this following outtake...a tribute to a family picture of the past (one that has me scarred for life, pretty much). I can NOT look at this picture without busting out in laughter. You, my family, will all understand. Love you all!!!
