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!

I finished a 2nd book while on vacation called “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire.
I could not put it down. I find my self still thinking about. I enjoyed it while reading it but now I don’t know how much there was to it.
I would recommended it. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Have you already read it? Please let me know what you thought. I am interested to hear your opinion.
Next up is “Touch & Go” by Lisa Gardner.
I love taking pictures. Which is pretty obvious if you follow me on instagram: http://instagram.com/alexandratobey#
Here are a few I took in Kiawah…
From last trip but my favorite
Amazing skies in Kiawah.
Missing the beach oh so much! Hope your week goes well.

Happy 4th of July to everyone!
We spend the day at the Beach Club on Kiawah. finally sunny and it turned into a beautiful day!
Hope everyone has a great night. Enojoy the fireworks.
I arrived in Charleston yesterday and had dinner with the family at Hanks downtown. Such good food and the BEST Peanut Butter Pie Ever!
Today was spent on the beach. It is alwasy gorgeous here.
Started my new book today. I read her 1st Amish thriller; Sworn to Silence. Really reccomend all of her books.
Nothing better than reading a good book on the beach in the sun.
I am on day 5/5 in a row at Pure Barre today. My body hurts. I had to squeeze in as much as I could before I leave tomorrow for Kiawah!
PB Guilt is a real thing. The quilt of missing 12 days of Pure Barre is really setting in. I honestly feel guilty. So guilty, that I looked up the downtown Charleston studio. That’s 45 minutes away and I think the beach/swimming/biking/tennis will all be way too much fun to leave. I will just remember to tuck :).
So last Friday, Pure Barre had a “Bring on the men” night. It was so fun and very funny. There were 8 guys in the class. They sweated and didn’t have clue what was going on but they were all sore after 🙂 Thanks PB Dayton, please host another men’s night soon.
Megan took my nephew, Jaxon and I took Jordan.
I have not heard from Cortney since yesterday morning. I try not to worry. I am sure she is having fun and I hope she is taking a lot of awesome pictures!
Kiawah tomorrow. CAN.NOT.WAIT.
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!
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
