Family Photoshoot

Saturday night, we arrived home around 11:30. Everyone went straight up to bed (after sleeping in the car) while I washed clothes and dishes, packed snacks, and tidied the house for Sunday. The I headed up to bed for about 5 hours sleep. Yay! Sleep....

We got up around 6:30 and started hair. Amazingly, everyone was actually ready and waiting to leave this Sunday. Instead of the insanity usual rush of Sunday morning.

We loaded 7 kids, and atleast 7 bags into the van and headed off to church. Where we heard a message on "Making a Difference Like Rahab." Which was a great message by the way.

You see, last week I won a family portrait with M.E. Photography and we were headed straight out to Barrie after church for the photo shoot. I think the kids were a little tired from Saturday's outing...

We met Nikki, Tanya, and all of their kids at the house. There were 14 kids altogether I think, and one adorable little kitten! They took a few shots of the kids in their studio, and then we headed out to the lakefront.

We haven't had a real "family portrait" done, since Keona was a baby. So this was really exciting for me- to get all 9 of us in the same picture.

Nikki and Tanya were amazing! So patient with all the kids, and very "go with the flow." Exactly, the type of photographers our family needs!

Did I already say that I am totally jealous of their talent love their work? Cause I do. Their Facebook group has some amazing shots. I adore the maternity ones, and wish I could have had mine done with them while I was pregnant!

If you're looking for a family portrait, maternity photos, newborn memory pictures, candid kid shots, couples' pictures or just about any other type of portrait- I highly recommend them!

I can't wait to share the pictures with everyone on the blog... here's a sneak peek.

Thanks so much Nikki and Tanya!


  1. Awesome family!!!! Just stopping by from SITS and wanted to say hello! I hope you are having a great day! Now I'm off to read more:)I looooove your blog!!!
    Hugs, Sandy

  2. What a great photo!! Can't wait to see the rest of them.

  3. great photo and you'll all look wonderful... but why do two of the triplets look smaller, legs shorter??? - maybe just the sitting up and others leaning back? just looks kinda weird...

  4. Thanks! :)

    I never even noticed that... yeah, I think Charity is leaning forward instead of sitting back.

  5. Nana said...What great pictures. I really like the one of the girls...lol
    I thought it was planned for Charity to be sitting taller so that it is tallest to shortest like stairs.
    Jed looks like he's ready to jump.
