Yesterday...my darling daughter emailed me to let me know that the "family" pictures she had taken of all of us at Christmas were done...now all we have left to do is pick the picture/pictures we want to have blown up into the portrait that our children so "wisely" gave us as our Christmas gift this year. They knew we would love this gift...and I must say...this is the FIRST time I have ever liked a picture of myself.



Now, I know my daughter is a very talented artist and photographer...but I think she's a pretty good therapist, too...she managed to make me FEEL so great about ALL of these pictures...and I couldn't be happier with any gift I've ever received. I love all the pictures she has taken...but this little photo session was one of the BEST times I've had for so many reasons...but I'll let you decide for yourself...I mean...look at my kids, look at my adorable and lovin' hubbin...I am so very blessed...I love my family...and I feel so lucky that they are all so much a part of our lives.



NOW the task of picking the perfect ONE...this is just a few of the ones she sent...they are all equally as good...this is just a sampling...I think I'm going to have a very hard time picking just one...in fact I'm pretty sure I'm going to want all of them!!

Jackie...you "rock" as a daughter and a photographer, not only are you beautiful...but you "capture" beauty in all of us...part of the reason I smile is b/c of you...Nat...you add so much fun and laughter to everything you do...thanks, I love you for making life so much fun for all of us! Marcus...you just warm my heart with your smile, charm and quiet humor...I can't help but beam...I'm one lucky mama! Emily, you add so much to our family, not only with your "loving" heart...but with your true grace, beauty and charm. And last but not least...my sweet hubbin...without you...I would not be complete...thanks for our children...and thanks for loving me!









NOW...look at these faces...and tell me how I'm going to just pick one...




This is the first time I've ever had a picture taken of myself that didn't make me cringe...I'm now actually using one of the pictures she took of me...for my blog...Jackie seemed to help me relax and have fun, I didn't even know she was taking half of these pictures, which actually is best for me...I guess that's another reason she is so GREAT!

those pictures are beyond good-they are great. I've never seen such expression and fun in photos. What great ideas. Your family is beautiful! What a blessing. You gave me some ideas for when I have all my children together again.

Wonderful, Terrific, Awesome, Fantastic, Superb, Fabulous, and Beautiful!

I would never be able to pick a single pic. The fact that you all truly care for one another shows through each picture! That is why your smiles are so natural...you really are happy!

OMG!!! They are so beautiful! The pictures AND each member of your family. And you! Love that picture of you! What impresses me the most is how Jackie was taking the pictures and still able to BE in the pictures, and she looked so stress free... Hmmm. I loved everyone of them. I thought the one of ya'll on the steps with hubbin' holding both yours and Jackie's hand was just so sweet and tender. A daddy with his two best girls.

I just loved these photos and Jackie is so talented! I have to go look at them again now...

Julie said...

Sue
