Every year I watch as the masses post these beautiful family photos grace my screens and timelines. Mini and I used to get ours done at Portrait People but the staged, indoor photos just doesn’t fit my style of life any longer and I wanted some outdoor photos that fit our personalities better.

Katie is such a professional that I wasn’t worried about this at all and I’m super excited to share our first family photos as a family of five!
