.Pre-Christmas...Family Photo Shoot.

Hi again!  I am trying to be back and have a long list of things I want to blog about.  Lots happening here at the moment though...We have just said goodbye to our extended family after a fun and busy holiday together...Trying to get the house organised and finish necessary bits and pieces before we head to Sydney for a special wedding on Friday...Putting the final touches on our Stake Young Womens Camp preparations that happens the day after I get home from Sydney...Thinking about what I need to do for the wedding reception at the end of January...And there has been a teeny, weeny bit of sewing although not nearly enough and I can't wait for things to settle down again so that I can get back into it!
I'll try and schedule some blog posts to happen automatically while I'm away - at the rate I'm going, I've got enough stuff to blog about to last me a month!!!
A few weeks before Christmas, Fiona met with us and took some family photos.  I am very ashamed to admit that we have never had family photos taken.  At least, nothing more than the quick pose at an event with children with food-covered faces.  My children are not the most obliging models and Lil was in a particularly bad mood this day.  Fiona still managed to work her magic and get some lovely shots.  I'm looking forward to filling some of the frames on our photo wall (will share that soon too!) with these pics...
I really love the natural "playing" photos
The cutest boy EVER
 

After a few jumping photos, Oscar was ready to smile for the camera...
And he was in desperate need of a haircut, oh well...these are "real life" memories!
Lil getting grumpier...
This one made our Christmas photo card
Kind of awkward pose, but I really like the pic.

 
Love this one :)

I really like the Christmas card one and the B&W one of you all from behind. Nice job Fiona!

I think all of those pics are beautiful. Even the ones that aren't as 'perfect', they probably show the personalities the best. We have never had family photos taken either! Does Fiona do them for anyone, or just family/friends?

Wow, what beautiful photos! I'd probably have them all framed, as I'd never be able to choose just 1!
