family pics 2014

This is our third year taking family photos with Gina of Gina Dreher Photography. Every year I wonder if we should spend the money on family photos…and then I get the photos back and am so glad that we did. This year was no exception. My new favorites for sure. Gina does such a great job capturing us. I can see the personalities of my boys shining through in each photo. And they love Miss Gina which makes family picture day so much easier on me. I seriously could have posted all sixty-some photos because they are all my favorite, but here are just a few. You can see more on Gina’s blog. Thank you, Gina! These photos are a treasure to me.



I love this one so much.

I look through these photos and am so overwhelmed by this family God has given me…and these three little guys he has entrusted to us. They can be a handful for sure, but what a blessing it is to spend my days as their mama.


And then there is this one. When I glance at it I can picture these two as grown men. I’m going to enjoy every moment with these handsome toddlers because I know that time will be here all too soon.

  • Deborah Raney - I LOVE the milk-and-cookies ones! Such a precious family, and you are SO wise to understand NOW how quickly it will all go. (But just so you know…what’s to come is even better! I dreaded the thought of teenagers, and they were a blast. I dreaded our kids leaving home, and I LOVE the empty nest. I didn’t dread grandkids 😉 but they are EVEN BETTER than I dreamed. God is so good…and THEN we get to go to heaven. Wow! 🙂ReplyCancel
