Planking + Mud = Family Pictures


Our brilliant photographer (and good friend Mark Gsellman – Photomatopoeia) captured some fun moments one partly-cloudy afternoon a couple weeks back. I thought I’d share just a few here.

Because I can’t help it.

Family planking

We may or may not be into technology and/or mobile devices…

family texting

That’s our apple tree – isn’t she LOVELY?!

And don’t forget the mud. What are family pictures without mud???

Mud? Yes indeed!

Best. Time. Ever.

no fun in mud...

My husband. What a flirt…

Mud can't bring me down!Speaking of flirts…

We have a whole lot more… mud-flinging… planking… awkward teeter-totter-on-a-log shots… personality… sweetness. The mud pictures are my absolute favorite.

Christmas is coming and I don’t want to spoil everything for the cards I probably won’t send. Again. But just in case… no more pics for now.

It’s been 3 years since we’ve done family pictures…

Ah… memories…

P.S. It’s been 2 weeks, and I am still cleaning up little remnants of mudfight… Makes me giggle…

    These are seriously some of the best family photos that I have ever seen. So totally awesome.

    But I need to ask, where is your 3rd child in the planking picture? I only see 2 kids.

    I love those pictures. I hope I’m one of the lucky ones to get a Christmas card! Or New Year’s card…or Valentine’s…whenever.
    It reminds me though that I need to get on the ball and get my kids ready for their annual Christmas card shoot. I need to go location scouting…Know of any good places?
