Family pictures 2010

My friend Ashley is a photographer and happens to be my next-door neighbor. Jackson LOVES her two daughters and makes himself right at home with them (literally--he just walks into their house on an almost daily basis). We had Ashley take our family pictures this year and we are SO happy with them.

Here are some of my very favorites:

Jackson did not want to let go of the apple he was eating from the orchard. I thought it was cute addition in the pictures!
I had to include this one just because it makes me laugh. The ultimate cheesy grin-- it almost looks painful!
Getting ready to tackle dad
I love this one even though Jackson isn't smiling. I am pretty sure his mouth is full of candy.
It was great Jackson was so comfortable with Ashley. She has a toy bear in a sleeping bag that really helped get smiles out of him. The session was relaxed and stress free-- opposite of what I am used to feeling about family pictures. Usually by the end I am just happy to be done and don't even care about how the pictures turn out. I really like Ashley's experience with kids and understanding that they aren't going to sit still and smile perfectly for the camera all the time. I also really like that she took both posed and unposed photos. All I know is it is good that we had the pictures taken about a month ago because if we took them today I would need some heavy-duty Spanx!

Thank you Ashley for taking pictures that we absolutely love and feel represent our family so well!
