Here is our annual fall family photo shoot. Each year seems to get harder to get great pictures. This attempt was extremely difficult but we got some great ones! I always imagine the perfect picture where I look skinny and both kids are smiling perfectly while looking directly at the camera. HA! What dream world am I living in? The great thing though is that even though there really is no such thing as "the perfect picture" when it involves a toddler and a baby, the ones that are farthest from perfection are often the best ones to show us as a family. Carter was so hard for this photo shoot but yet he is the one that made me laugh so much as I looked at these pictures. His true personality came out in every single one and they make me smile. That is what I really want out of a photo of my family. I want to smile as I look at it.
