Lori (LB Photography) and I had planned to meet up in November 2012 to have our family pictures done! Well that day didn’t quite work out so we finally found time again a few weeks ago.
We looked at a few color options/poses on Pinterest. We knew we had to find some good poses considering we had 14 people! Here were a few poses Lori had pinned on pinterest for our big family: http://pinterest.com/LBBoutique12/family-photo-shoot/
We decided on blue/tan/white with a little bit of pink added in! (Love these colors and we both agreed they would look nice all together). Lori said we need some patterns to be added in so it wouldn’t be so plain. Stripes, plaid, layers it was! It was stressful trying to coordinate 14 peoples outfits but staying on the color scheme we just had to make sure we didn’t have too many stripes/etc.
They came AMAZING!! We did 2 group shots followed by each individual family.
I LOVE this picture of everyone
Tried another pose from pinterest
We then did the grandgirls, grandboys and one of all of the grandkids!
I loved how the colors turned out together!

Last weekend a bunch of us went to Devils Lake in Michigan. My friend, Ashley’s family has a lake house.
We had such a good time boating, jet skiing, drinking and floating!
The lake provided for some GREAT sunset pictures. I took maybe 40 but tried to pick just a select few 🙂
love this picture!
Hope your weekend is fantastic!
Hope your long weekend was amazing!
I wanted to tell you an awesome thing that happened. On January 29 of this year my Mom and I were headed to LA to be on the ELLEN Show!
The show called my Dad here at work on January 28 (Monday). No one believed them when they said “This is Ellen from the Ellen DeGeneres Show”. (This was producer Ellen, not the REAL Ellen). They were looking for my Mom. After some convincing, my Dad finally called my mom and told her to call them back. Mom called them back at 5:00 on Monday. Mom and I were on a plane Tuesday morning at 11am headed out to LA.
Why did they want my Mom on the Ellen show?
We meet the sweetest woman at a 2010 Rotary Christmas party who did not sign up in time and had 4 young children at home who were not going to have a Christmas. Mom took their information and we went shopping! We wrapped the presents and took them over to Ry’Shonda when the kids were at school. We have done this every year since. These children are amazing because their mom is even more amazing! They deserve all the best in the world. Ry’Shonda wrote into Ellen about my mom. She said my Mom is her “Angel” and wanted Ellen to give her something. Well Ellen did that and gave Ry’Shonda even more!

We were only in LA for 2 days. We made the most of it! Stayed at the Roosevelt Hotel right on Hollywood Blvd! It was such a great experience!

Watch what Ellen did for Ry’Shonda and her 4 children. AMAZING!
Be kind to one another 🙂
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s out there!
My Mom is the best woman on this earth. She is my best friend. I don’t know what I would do without her. I Love You Mom!
I love taking pictures. I am so lucky that I go to Kiawah a few times a year and that is how I get amazing pictures like these;
These were taken in St. Johns, USVI (Caneel Bay). I was there for a wedding in December. It was gorgeous!
Hopefully makes your Monday a little bit better!
I use a Cannon PowerShot and the Nikon J1 (Ashton Kutcher Camera) haha
Happy Friday! It is almost Cinco De Mayo….I love me some margaritas!
So excited it is almost the weekend.
I listen to Elvis Duran and the morning show EVERY morning. I love realness of the show! They are always talking about the new coolest stuff. Carla Marie brought this to my attention this morning.
