Family Pictures

Before we left Utah, I really wanted to get some family pictures taken. Obviously we wanted the baby in the photos, and obviously I wanted as much time after he was born before we took them so I could look as non-pregnant as possible, but with Philip already working out in California, we took our one opportunity when he was home for a weekend and got them done.

Buck was only two weeks old and it was about 15 degrees outside, so none of us were really thrilled to be out there, but Marie did an awesome job and I’m beyond thrilled with how they turned out.

Here’s a few of our favorites.

favorite, favorite!
