Backyard Mini Session

I'm excited to share our photos from our backyard mini session last week!  It had been a long time since our last family photos, so of course I wanted to get some updated ones taken since Ellie has grown so much!  I also liked the idea of getting a few photos taken at home - our first home that holds a lot of special memories - while we're still living here.

I do really like lifestyle-type shots where we're just kind of doing our thing because they obviously look more natural, but I can't get over the fact that we got a nice picture where we're all looking at the camera AND genuinely smiling!!  Not an easy task, guys.  That one might have to be printed as a giant poster size. ;)

It was hot and Ellie was overheated, overtired and desperately missing her binky.  You know when you try to be a good mom and plan your photo session around your baby's nap time?  Well, that works but only when she actually takes a nap during her "nap time".  Also, she totally bit my thumb so hard it ripped the nail polish right off while we were getting these pictures taken.  Regardless, Adrienne was super sweet with Ellie (not to mention extremely patient) and I could tell that Ellie really liked her!  Thank you again for capturing sweet photos of my girl and our family.

Be sure to check out Adrienne's website if you're local!  We have loved having her as our photographer and are very much looking forward to our session in the fall! Don't hate me when I say I'm already looking forward to Christmas cards. :)


  1. All of these are so perfect!! Love the natural lighting between the trees and the green trees just look so great. The first one of just you and Ellie is so sweet!

    1. Thank you!! We love them too! Adrienne does such an awesome job :)
