It's about time...

Scott and I have been married for 6 years and never had a single professional picture taken.  Not any newborn photos, no first birthday cake-smashing photoshoot. nothing.

  I know, we are completely lame. 

For the last 6 years, I kept waiting for the "perfect time".  A time when I wasn't pregnant, or trying to lose weight after having a baby, or a time when Jack didn't have 5 stitches in his face. I came to the realization recently that it's not about capturing our family at the perfect time {because there isn't going to be a perfect time!}, but it's more about capturing our family at THIS time in our lives.   

So I did it.  I scheduled a photoshoot with Scott's brother Randy. Hilarious, right? Yeah, we had a photographer in the family the WHOLE time.  I know, I just became even more lame.

Randy specializes in the "Rustic" look, which I love.  He mostly takes pictures of old buildings and cars...even sells them! I can't wait to get these bad boys framed and hung!!

Man, we are one GOOD lookin' couple...{heehee}

I love this one of the perfectly captures some of the quirky things the kids do lately.  It's perfect.

Jack started preschool today, which we were ALL excited for.  He loves school, and I love having a few hours of "Bianca" time while Laney takes her afternoon nap.  It's a win-win for everyone involved!!

As Jack gets older, I see more and more of his daddy coming through in his daily habits (his habitual eating for one).  I doubt anyone actually knows this about Scotty, but he lays his clothes out every night for work to make mornings run a little smoother.  I shouldn't have been surprised when Jack picked up the same habit, carefully laying his clothes out every night in the hall or his bedroom.  He even tucks a pair of underwear underneath his pants, and a pair of socks inside his shoes.  The night before his first day of school was ESPECIALLY important.  Heehee, put a smile on my face every time I walked by.

Two cute siblings.  Man, I didn't realize how light Bianca's hair turned this summer...Her and Jack almost look like they have the same color hair!

The ever-huge SpiderMan looks GIANT on his petite little body (Yes, I realize that that was a redundant statement. deal with it.)

The Diva in the background thought I was taking pictures of her...that little turkey. 

The million dollar smile.  This kid has "heart breaker" written ALL over him.

And this sassy lady, there are no words for her...

"Mom, take a picture of my purse"

"Hey Jack, give me one more smile for your big 1st day"

"No, not that one you stinker...the REAL one."

"Yep, that's the money shot" 

Here's to another fabulous school year!!
