Family Portaits

I realized that I posted way back in October about the fact that we were getting our family portraits taken, and then I never posted the pictures!  A lot of you will have already seen these on either Facebook or our Christmas cards, but this blog is actually taking the place of Scrapbooking for me right now, so I wanted to post them on here so they can be included in our family history for this year.

If you have a blog, did you know that you can get it printed into a book?  Check out this site called Blurb.  I am planning on getting mine printed by years..one for 2007, one for 2008, etc.

My friend Janet Wisner took these pictures for us in November.  The location was old downtown Plano, in behind all the old buildings.  She will be launching her new photography website soon!

These are some of my favorites:

Gorgeous Gorgeous photos! What a beautiful family! I love the one of you guys tickling the kids!

Thanks for the link about the blog book - we've been searching for something like this for a while. We really want to do the same thing. What a great idea!

Love you all!

Ditto on the pictures! And on the blog book!

What a GREAT idea to turn your blog posts/photos into a book! I've been wanting to do something like that for awhile now, I just didn't know a site like Blurb existed.

I went to the site to check it out. However, seeing as I'm a bit of a technological nitwit, I didn't really probe around that much to see how it works. Do you provide them with the url to your site and presto magico!, they take it from there, or is there a lot of copying/pasting/reuploading of photos that has to be done prioring to having them make the book?

I saw that the books start at around $13. Made me wonder what a year-long blog book would run. Yowser!

I'm definitely going to do it, though. Thanks so much for posting the link to the site! =)

Those pics are so great!!!! I love the candid shots - I wish I knew a photographer near me instead of setting up my camera on a tripod LOL

Lovin these pics, Courtney! Definitely some to frame in that bunch!

Thanks for the prayers, too! I almost didn't want to post that because I didn't want it to deter you guys from coming! But it is reality, I guess. We have all been safe, though.

Thanks also for the website. I definitely want to check that out. It's a great idea! I think I will also be able to pull some pics off my blog. I'm still very bummed but I think I can make some good from it.

Is it ok to tell you that I am insanely jealous? I just wish I had a good photographer friend who could take family photos like this for us....oh wait, we did have that and then we up and moved. My bad.
