my family | 2011 | watercolor family portraits

So it is usually an epic fail when I try to do family pictures but this year I enlisted a friend of mine from high school who is a hobbyist and loves getting her hands on a camera to do the shots of all 5 of us. I knew the perfect spot (literally within inches), I got all our outfits together, and I set Alison (click her name to visit her family blog-she will crack you up) up. She and I went over some images that I liked and I showed her this and that and what I liked and she shot away! We finally released her and then Jon & I got our hands on the camera and even Olivia got to take a few 😉

I have had several people ask me about the girls outfits so here is the wardrobe rundown:

Greyson: NextDirect

Olivia & Presley: Apron Dresses by Pixiilane and Pettiskirts by Oopsy Daisy Baby

My Dress: XOXO at Dillards and Boots from Private Gallery at Destin Commons

Jon: Guess shirt/Jeans from Buckle

Olivia took this one sitting on the trampoline behind our house-we are currently hydroseeding our yard so it’s a bit pitiful:(haha

    Dayna - GORGEOUS! Every single one of them. Mine are an epic fail every year too but you’ve inspired me and given me hope that maybe I can do a better job this year. Great job Kansas, they are all winners in my book.

    Sue Fowler - JUST BEAUTIFUL!! Have to ask…are you guys using a flash with all that bright background light to fill in the face?

    You are all beautiful!

    kansas - Thank you! No these are 100% natural light like *most* of my stuff. I shot at proper exposure and if our faces needed a little light I did in photoshop and then edited around the trees to give them the right look 😉
