family photos 2010

Last weekend we drove up Big Cottonwood Canyon to take some family photos. We met up with my friend Katie Dudley, who also happens to be a photographer. I had the brilliant idea to have her take our photos and I would photograph her family. We ended up feeling a bit rushed and both had little boys who didn't want to smile for the camera, but overall it was a success. And it's a good thing we took these when we did, because our warm Autumn has turned to cold and rain the past few days. I doubt we'll have anymore 70+ degree days this year.

The first two were taken by Katie. The ones of the kids I took. The sun kept going in and out behind a cloud on its quick descent, hence the difference in lighting in all these.

We finally got Asher to smile. I'm rather in love with this photo.

And then some of the kids playing in the leaves.

I must say it was a ton of work to get 7 people picture ready. I was exhausted by the end of the day. And I'm going to have to do it again at Thanksgiving so we can take photos with all of my family. Also, it is nearly impossible to get that many people to smile at the same time.... when the baby's not crying!


  1. I love that picture of all the kids; Asher's smile is so cute! They all have the sweetest smiles. Sam's camera smile is more like a grimace:)

  2. I love these pictures! The one of the kids is precious! It's so worth the hassle of getting ready to have such great photos and memories! Of course I can say that because I don't have seven people in my family...yet :)
