that time of year

as the summer winds down, and kids go back to school, i am reminded of the fact that no longer are we all together as a family like the old days. the time when all of the kids were safe under one roof, and around me 24/7 is gone. now i have 2 spreading their wings even in another state. the distance sometimes makes my heart ache. however, with all of this very normal growing up, which happens to every person i know...(it's not supposed to happen to me) we need to take time to snap a few photos, document time, and hire a professional to do it right. so we contacted tiffany of tiffany portraits to do the dirty work. she was wonderful, and so patient with our weird group. her website is here. i brought my camera along for emma and me to take some shots in between her works of art...i think she might even be able to make us all look angelic. tough job, but i think she just might be able to pull it off. so, these are a few of us waiting for our specific time to pose. very fun, but boy was i exhausted when i got home.
all of that smiling is tiring.

and why is picture day so stressful?

Your kids are just gorgeous.

I am ashamed to say I have not had my girls' pictures done since my 10 year old was a toddler. Need to change that...
