Beach Family Pictures

Every year, while staying at the beach, we set aside one night during the week for family pictures.
 Getting 17 people to be still, smile, and look in the (semi) same direction--at the same time--is no small task!

My sister B and I usually resort to bribery,  pleading, and even begging in order to get the job done! HA!

But with a trip to the pier promised once everyone was done, the picture taking commenced and went surprisingly well.
Corban, 10 years old
Riley, 7 years old

 My girls!
Sophie, 4 years old 
Addy-Kate 3 years old
Me and my sweet girls
Daddy and AK
Just the two of us;)
Our family
My AWESOME parents
The kids (minus my brother Steve) with my parents
My sweet sisters!
 KK and AK!
Al, Jake, KK, and AK

Family picture night can seem like a chore sometimes, but I'm so thankful that we take the time to do it. Each and every sweet face captured in these photos is so incredibly special to me.

I love this quote...
“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.” - Eudora Welty

And I'm so happy to have captured these fleeting moments with the ones I love most!
