Mother's Day Mini Photo Session

Some cute photos of our family, taken by us. At least 3 times a year I like to try to do a mini session (30 minutes) with our family. It would be helpful to have someone else jumping around being goofy behind the camera because with just mom and dad there, the kids aren't too pumped. Next time we will go first thing in the morning as they were exhausted as it was in the afternoon, after church. Koen is at a difficult age where he refuses to look at the camera and apparently it was a bit bright based on their squinty eyes:)

I'm hoping to order some professional canvas prints and I wanted to get at least 3-4 photos that I love. Can't say we got them but these are only `lightly edited' so maybe I can fix them up a bit more. Any favourites from below?

I am so incredibly thankful for my boys. They are such a gift. This is what Kai had to say on the DVD the preschool made:

`I love my mommy because she teaches me so many things. That is why I'm so smart.'. Ha, complimenting himself in there:)

Looking forward to having an addition (or two...we'll see how one goes first:)) to our family photo one day!

To those that have lost their mom, or a child, or long to be mothers, my heart is with you on this day.

Love, Louise

  9. Laura-the boots are actually just from Shoe Warehouse and Gary got them at Christmas time for less than $65.00:) Several other people emailed and asked where they were from so I guess they are kinda nice!
