One of my favorite times of the year (and Scott’s LEAST favorite, ha) is when we get our annual family pictures taken! Since Grayson was a baby, we’ve had our family pictures made in the fall of each year, just in time for Christmas and we had ours done this year by the lovely and talented Laura Roush of Laura Roush Photography.
I was actually lucky enough to WIN a free session with her! Earlier this year, she hosted a contest to win a free session on her Facebook page, and I just happened to see it, entered it, and lo and behold, I won!! I had seen her work online and her presence in our little community and was so excited. And MAN, did she exceed my expectations.
Probably my all-time favorite picture of my beautiful babies.
The prom shot we never had, haha!
My favorite of me and my honey
Another one of my all-time favorites. Candids are always my favorite.
And selfishly, I’m obsessed with this one. Want to make a mama feel loved? Gaze at her adoringly in a family photo in a beautiful field at dusk. I promise, it will do the trick!
I have a few more that I’m keeping to myself until our Christmas Cards come out, but I love how Laura captured my family in these photographs. I take thousands of pictures year to year, but to look back on our family portraits each fall nearly brings tears to my eyes. To see how the kids grow and change, to see how we all grow and change each year is such a blessing. So thank you so much, Laura, for sharing your gift with us and stopping time for us on an autumn afternoon.
