My amazing and talented friend, Michelle, took family photos for us, and we LOVE how they came out! If anyone in Phoenix needs a photographer, she's your girl! Her website is http://www.michellepraskins.com/.
In the past we have had photos in more rugged areas where we couldn't bring the girl's chairs. Since their chairs are essentially an extension of them, it was important to me to include them in this round of photos. She captured all of the kiddos joy, and spunk, perfectly!
We also wanted to have my family included in photos, since we haven't ever had photos as a whole group. Both of my brothers, my parents, and my older brother's family, were able to join us. I love big family photos!
