Updated Family Photos

A few weeks ago I spontaneously won a free family photo session from a local photographer, Michelle Voigt.  All you had to do to enter was like and share her page and comment why you felt you should win.  My "why" was because I have lost 35+ lbs over the last year and updated family pics would be a nice reward.  I was so shocked that she picked me.  Can I just say I really loved working with Michelle, she was so sweet and really captured our love.

Before I go any further, the last time we had family pictures was in December 2011.  When I got them back, I hated every picture I was in and never printed them out.  Here is a sampling of them.

You get the point.  It also didn't help that I had gotten my hair cut right before the pics and she cut off way more than I wanted.

Anyways, coming back to the present.  I was really excited to update the family pics and I love them.  Here are a few of my favorites.

These are definitely getting printed and the one where we are sitting is getting blown up and hung in the living room. I may not be where I want to be weight wise but I am loving myself during the process.


  1. Love these! Also love the outfits you all are wearing, adorable!

  2. I LOVE these pictures! Your color choices are SO GOOD! Did she work with you on colors or was that your doing? Yes. these are REALLY GOOD pictures!

    1. Thanks Cindie! I picked out the colors, basically my hubby had the blue shirt and I built mine and MJ's outfits around his.

  3. Oh they are absolutely gorgeous, love them! And that family shot will be just beautiful on a canvas for sure. Time certainly changes us, and hopefully always for the better!

  4. The outfits are adorable. You look beautiful (in both shoots).
