Our Family Photos 2017

I haven’t been too shy sharing many of our family photos we took back in November. For obvious reasons, I was quite selective on which ones I was showing for a while. Now I assume that you all want to see all 90+ pictures from the day, right?

Just kidding, but I did want to share my favorites. I had such a hard time choosing, so there are quite a few.


I met our photographer, Jana, through my friend Lindsay. They are friends from church and she has taken all of their family and newborn photos. Jana and her husband, Matt, both have full time careers outside of photography and photograph weddings and families on the side.

Our shoot was originally scheduled for the previous Saturday, but a torrential downpour changed our plans. I am so glad it did because the following Sunday afternoon was absolutely gorgeous.

I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t too optimistic at first. Leighton decided she didn’t want to have her afternoon nap (after a busy day) and my allergies were killing me, so I was moments away from a breakdown thinking our photos would be ruined. When we got to the parkland to meet Jana and Matt, I immediately felt more at ease. They were the sweetest couple ever and they had Leighton smiling and laughing right away.

Looking for her raisins we were hiding in Trav’s pocket.

It was such a comfortable session and I feel like you can tell that by looking at the pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Also, I still need to choose which ones to print, so tell me your favorites!

Leighton wanted to crash the bump pictures. Pretty sure it is just the beginning of her being jealous of her future sibling.

After almost an hour, Leighton kept saying “sleepy” and rubbing our eyes for us. She isn’t normally too affectionate, but she was wanting all of the cuddles and we weren’t complaining.

But seriously, how cute is my husband?

And that’s a wrap! I can’t believe the next time we have photos taken there will be a fourth subject!
