We have really wanted to do family pictures up Santaquin Canyon for quite some time. I had always just planned on doing them in the spring or summer when it was lush and green, but I'm so glad we procrastinated until the late fall, threw on our warm clothes and got super cozy!
We even lucked out and got a skiff of snow!
We are so lucky to have Misty Lee, a real photographer, in the family! She makes us look so GQ!
I learned my lesson from the last wintry photo session with kids and put them in layers and layers with gloves, hats, scarves, vests and even a big puffy blanket it things got really bleak.
We started out with a few hat-free shots of the girls because it took an hour to get their hair done and I wasn't wasting that kind of work!
Klive refused to take his lumberjack hat off, so he sported it in every picture.
A good photographer knows she has to work quickly with kids who only have so much tolerance for sitting still, posing, and perma-smiling at a camera.
Misty's good at her job - she makes the kids forget what they are there for and captures the beautiful faces I get to look at everyday!
Me and my mini-mes!
We ended up using the big blanket and threw on our hats when the snow started to fall. Okay, just kidding. It was cold, but there was not a snow cloud in sight. Misty used her magic Photoshop skills to add the snow later.
The snow on my scarf is real though.
A little pitcher I know couldn't resist making a snowy softball and starting some trouble.
Just trying to defend myself, I swear.
Things got ugly fast!
This might be my new favorite of Kolby and Me.
This one captured both of my loves - Kolby and my new minivan!
