family photo shoot and a winner

we had family pictures taken on sunday morning in galveston.
we met at 9:15 am at the seawall & 61st.
the weather was perfect
well, maybe a little too windy {for me}

i was so excited because one of my really good friends, jamie, was taking our pictures.
this was the first time in 5 years that someone {other than my talented sister} has taken our family pictures. i couldn't wait!

i had so much fun trying to decide what we were all going to wear.
i was trying to think out of the box and use color
but.. i kept going back to white and khaki.

the boys outfits were easy to put together
... khaki shorts and a white polo
but, finding the "right" outfit for me was the challenge.

i tried to "be good" and find something in my closet to wear.
i think i tried on 100 outfits before i couldn't take it any more!
so, i got in my car and headed to my favorite shops.
i walked into my all-time favorite shop..
and there it was!
the most b.e.a.u.t.iful outfit
it was perfect!

we took several pictures
and they are all so cute!
we had so much fun.
i can't wait to do this again
thanks jamie!!

now, all i have to do is figure out what pictures i want to order...
i'll share more pictures soon
