Piper & Oliver :: Why should we get family pictures? :: I have an iphone

I met Piper and Oliver last year and I was smitten immediately.These two little blondies are adorable in every way. Their Mom loved having family pictures taken. As I got to know her better, I learned she was extremely thrifty. I grew up with an extremely thrifty Dad, so I wanted to know, why would this Mom spend money on pictures?

She has an iphone. 

We all know those pictures rock, right?

Here is what Jaqui told me:
Material things don't matter very much to me. I love pictures. I love looking at images and remembering the day the picture was taken. Pictures make my heart smile. In our home, I put pictures everywhere. When you walk in the front door, you will see us. I don't want random art by anonymous people. I want us.

I was told in 2007 that I could never carry a baby full term. In 2009 and 2011 I had the greatest gifts of my life. Piper and Oliver are growing so quickly. I don't ever want to feel that I missed out on watching them sprout. Annual pictures are my way to make sure our photo albums are not mommy-less! Seeing how fast my little ones grow in these early years, I have come to realize that photos are invaluable. 

So, there you have it. Get pictures done immediately! Family portraits are priceless.

SO true. This made me really think. We have NEVER had family portraits done. I think maybe now's a good time to start. :-) Thanks. Beautiful pics here, as always!

Love these! It's been 4 long years since we got family photos done and to this day they are by far my FAVORITE photos of our family. There is nothing better.
