The Art of Taking an Impromtu Family Portrait {with toddlers}

We tried,
we really did...
And yes, my child is the only one bouncing off the walls in every picture.








And for those of you who watch Modern Family,
you know why these are the best kind of family portraits.


And now, the cousins {two missing}.
These kiddos make me proud.





And on a smiliar note,
have you ever visited AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com?
Ha-Lar-Eee-Us!

All the pictures are too awesome! My favorite family photos are the ones like these where they're not perfect at all but they're just right ;)

Hahaha LOVE Modern Family!! You've got some precious kids in your family!

Your family photos are priceless! I have found over the years that the photos that bring the most joy are the ones that are imperfect. The crazy faces, expressions, little ones trying to escape - they just make the photos!

You have a beautiful family!

love how your husband looks the exact same in each photo, happy and smiling and there you are trying to wrangle your son! Lol, too funny and super cute!

HAHA! I loved that episode of Modern Family!

Your pictures are fun even if they are not "pefect". I think they are more fun with a bit of character!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to take several (like 10 or more) tries for a family portrait... our clan is crazy and either is talking, blinking, sneezing, waving, yelling... etc during the photo. even though I put it on the tripod and there is the handy dandy ten second countdown... people (i.e. my dad) still don't understand when it's blinking faster, it's going to take the photo!!!! and I absolutely love the awkward family photo site, definitely super hilarious :D Have a happy Sunday!

I guess now you can try that family picture cropping that I see on tv commercials =P

In the last family portrait, where your tot is on his belly on your lap, the other baby is like "what are you doing?" LOL! I love family portraits. Maybe when he's older...lol

Just Better Together

Oh Ashley... the cuteness of the kids... awww!

I totally feel your pain re: family photos. The worst is when you try to take photos of grandparents and kids and the grandparents keep looking at the kids telling them to look at the camera then the kids smile but the grandparents aren't looking! That's my fave. Ayayay!

When I first saw the first couple of pictures, I thought of Modern Family, then I went down farther. Too funny. Love the pictures and I am sure you will love the memories that they have created for your family.

Can we talk about how it's obviously been too many weeks since I've seen W cause he has some SERIOUS hair going on now. Dang, I love that kid!

Outtakes make some of the best pictures.

I don't get people who don't watch Modern Family. It's the bestest ever.
