Family Portraits 2014

We had our annual family portraits taken in late August. I wanted to do a bohemian/enchanted styled session this year, so I went with long dresses for the first time, shorts for the boys and flower crowns.
Last year we did an elegant urban themed session. The year before that a summer garden theme and the year before that a fall theme.

These were all taken at a campground. We got lost a few times and had to ask a park ranger for help. He saw us all dressed up and asked if we were headed to a wedding.

The boys' shirts are from Gap Kids and their sandals are from Payless.

Evangeline's dress was from Etsy and I made her flower crown using this video tutorial.

The water was very deep here, so I was to the right of the tree in case one of them lost balance. It was difficult to cross the branch and I ended up hurting my ankle trying to get the boys on it.

  1. I admire your commitment to yearly portraits! It's so sweet to watch your family grow.

    1. I am committed! As time goes on, I cherish them more and more. I wish we started taking yearly family portraits right after we got married to document our years together.

  2. Lovely! I just HAD to click the link for E's dress...they have it in L's size! Your blog is getting dangerous lol

  3. Wow! Such stunning photos! You hair turned out perfect, and I loved you in a long gown. I enjoyed hearing about your session. Taking family portraits in late summer makes so much sense.
