Family Pics - the importance of great photography

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Okay, you're not actually going to get a ton of family pics here, fooled ya BUT you're going to hear about the pics we had taken Sunday (don't worry, you'll see the actual pics shortly after we do).

Mr. B HATES getting pictures taken but I LOVE having nice pictures. Can you guess who wins that one? Yup, ME, EVERYtime.

He's argued that it's too much money (despite the fact our photographers are very reasonably priced) but I argue, that when you walk around our house and see beautiful pictures that capture the true essence of our family, you cannot put a price on that.

I think part of the reason he's become less arguable is because we have the best photographers. Seriously.

If you meet people you like hanging out with, that make you laugh, make your child smile and take AMAZING pictures... don't let them go... EVER.

MillerEllis have been our photographers since before we were engaged.... since before mini-me was even a thought in our minds (okay, she was a thought, but a hypothetical one). It took one session to have us (or me) hooked. No looking back. Engagement, wedding, maternity, newborn... the list goes on (reminding me, I need to do some flashback photo entries)

I digress, we had family pics taken yesterday and if the Instagram shot is any indication of how these pics will turn out, call me thoroughly impressed (again).

I recognize that the bulk of my readers aren't local, but show MillerEllis some Facebook love by liking their page. Not only will you get to see all their amazing images BUT you'll get the 'sneak peeks' of our pics in real time!

If you ARE local, then you must like their page immediately AND book your next photos ASAP! They regularly offer 'mini sessions' that are very affordable.

If you aren't local, I hope you're as fortunate as we are to have some amazing photographers/friends to capture your family's most precious moments.

For my Style Challenge ladies - Nicole (the 'Miller' in MillerEllis) is in our fall challenge ;)

  1. Totally agree! Invest in photography like you would art, it's priceless.

  2. I really love some of the photos we have had taken professionally of our family. We had photos taken on the beach in Destin just the last summer and I haven't framed any of them yet. MY BAD. I need to get on it. These are all beautiful photos of the two of you!

    1. I know, it takes me forever to get around to framing them but I'm always so happy once I do.

  3. Gorgeous pictures! Time for some new ones at my house too...

  4. Beautiful photos! We really need to have some professional photos taken of our family. Need to get on that one - maybe for holiday cards!


  5. Oh my gosh, what gorgeous pictures. Love the b&w of you and Mr. B. when you were pregnant with lil b. So cute. I need to have pics taken with my daughters and with my hubster. You have inspired me.

    1. thanks Leslie.
      You should schedule a session with your family - great Christmas present idea!

  6. What a sweet and touching photo of you and your husband while you are pregnant! Such a tender keepsake!

  7. I love family photos! My husband and I never take photos together except the odd selfie. I always wish I had more of us besides our wedding photos. Must get on that!

  8. Some beautiful pictures, really love the theme and photography. Stay happy!


Love hearing from you!
