Family Photos

I have some amazingly talented friends. Seriously, no joke, no lie. You'll see in a minute...

I mentioned awhile back when Chris, Kodi, and I were being goofy in the pool that my girlfriend Erin gave me family pictures for my Birthday back in March.  She's such a talented photographer, and I was seriously so excited for the gift.  The only problem was, time is never my friend...and you have to make time to do these things.

The weekend before Thanksgiving, we all decided to clear out our busy schedules to make time to do this...and I'm so glad we finally did.

You guys are used to seeing me looking something like this:

And this is probably on a relatively good day.  That's in a ponytail, sans makeup, and with exercise clothes on.  That's the me that I represent in this blog anyways...

But Erin is a miracle worker.  Seriously.  I mean, I did up my hair and makeup, and Erin came over and picked out my outfits the night before to wear, but how she managed to make these pictures look so good is beyond me.  My absolute favorite part about them is that she captured 'us'.  She knows me better than most (umm...sorry E!), and Chris and I actually both had a TON of fun doing this photo shoot.

So, without further ado, here's the pictures Erin and Chris posted on their blog :

Oh my goodness...I have to comment on just this one.  Isn't my husband HOT?!!!

Okay, I lied...this one too.  Even our feet shot captures us.  I'm constantly standing on one foot (don't ask, I have no idea why), and Chris always stands with his foot sideways like that when he's in dress clothes.  He's like a 7 year old boy trying to play dress up.  So cute!

Amazing right?!  She didn't even photo-shop anyone else's heads on our bodies...that's for really us!!

If you'd like to read more on our background with the photo shoot, or want to see some more amazing and beautiful pictures, visit Erin's Blog.  Or if you'd like to leave her some comment lovin to tell her how amazing it is that she can clean us up that well, feel free to do that too!

Erin put so much work into this photo shoot...from helping me pick out my outfits, to finding SO many different amazing places for us to do our photos at, I'm so grateful to her (and her hubby :-)) for doing this for us.  These are pictures that I'll forever cherish and it means the world to me that she just did all of this out of the goodness of her heart for my birthday.  What a special friend!!!  Love you E!!

Stay tuned for Friday's post on the baby shower...Hope everyone's having a great Wednesday!
