We recently had a opportunity to have our family photos taken professionally. And, of course, I jumped at the chance.
I shared a few of these on a post at No Hands But Ours, but there are a few more. And since this is where I *attempt* do the memory-keeping for this family o’ mine, I wanted to share them here most of all.
I didn’t have super high expectations. After all, no one got new clothes or had their hairs did. Only a few of our outfits even really coordinated. And one of us was missing her nap. But I just figured we’d go out there and have fun.
And, other than missing my biggest boy, I think they’re kinda wonderful. Especially because I am completely crazy about the people in them.
Just look at Clementine’s face in this one, y’all. She’s trying to pound it with the photographer.
And these smiles – all eight of them.
We had our last family pictures taken almost a year ago, just a few months after Clementine came home.
And a whole lot has happened since.
When we had those taken, we didn’t even know about Clementine’s undiagnosed special need.
So now, to have pictures like these after the year we’ve had, well… they’re just good for my heart.
So much represented in these faces.
So much that the Lord has done and continues to do.
So very thankful for these beautiful, and much-needed reminders of His goodness, sovereignty and faithfulness.
Thank you, Liz, for capturing our family in a way that gives this mama a big reason to smile.
