Well Monica was so fast at getting us our pictures! Someday we will be that fast:)
I need help deciding which picture to blow up. What do you think?!?


HI Miranda,
Just try and go with the color scheme of your house or the room you will be hanging the portrait in. I chose fall colors with texture. Adding belts, necklaces and hair pieces adds a lot to the photograph.
You will do great!

I’ve been drooling over these photos since you posted them last year. So inspirational! My daughter will be one in September and we are getting family pictures done…any tips on shopping for them? It will be me, my husband, and baby girl. You always seem to style everyone and make your photos that much more gorgeous! Love your work!

I love #3 because of the incredible vineyard background, and the family looks beautiful! But its a toss up because #4 is incredible light! Wow, hard to decide for you…they are all amazing…just finding your blog now, love your photography! From another busy mom photographer vintage lover with 3 precious girls!

 ( Oct 11th, 2010 4:11 pm)

I think the second one from the top is my favorite. Beautiful family!

 ( Oct 6th, 2010 4:46 am)

Your family is beautiful!

 ( Oct 5th, 2010 10:13 pm)

SO Beautiful!! I’m going to vote for the 2nd one down :) I love that the connection between each of you is tangible in all of these pictures. What an awesome family you have!

 ( Oct 5th, 2010 4:46 pm)

Love all of Your photos, #3 is also my favorite :) I think we are all wondering where You got Your HOT boots ? ;) super cute outfit by the way

 ( Oct 5th, 2010 3:53 am)

They are all GREAT, but I like the first one best. :)

 ( Oct 4th, 2010 9:17 pm)

I would go with Number three too! Good compostion and will enlarge well! Love that skirt- I had it on my ANthro wish list already!!

Katie, I’m from Ca & now in Va and I so miss the beautiful wineries! I say to pick no. 3, you don’t want to miss out showing that beautiful winery in the background!

 ( Oct 4th, 2010 12:40 pm)
Monica Martin 

So glad everyone loves ‘em! It wasn’t hard capturing gorgeous photos of a gorgeous family! I love them all too :)

 ( Oct 4th, 2010 5:25 am)
Jennifer Barnes 

#3 is my vote. So perfect. Any you choose will be darling

 ( Oct 4th, 2010 3:16 am)
Christie Lewis 

Love them all! I have this skirt… Great taste!!! I would go with number 3 also. That scenery is too beautiful not to see in the background.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 9:48 pm)

Thanks Katelyn. Got it at Anthropologie

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 8:51 pm)
Katelyn Anderson 

I am DYING to know where all of the cuteness of your outfit came from?! LOVE the shirt, LOVE the skirt… it’s all fantastic! Your family is so beautiful.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 4:54 pm)

LOVE them! My FAV family shot is the one where the whole chair shows with wine country in the background. So PERFECT.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 4:38 pm)

Stunning family, location, photography, etc. My vote is for #3 as well! I was also wondering where you purchased your bib necklace?

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 3:23 pm)

I think we all love your outfit choices. I actually could not get them out of my head today; the colors selected are super creative! Are there any details you will share regarding them? Especially those gorgeous boots! We live on an island- it is better incredible weather, but cool outfits likes these make me miss the crisp weather. Is that really what the area looks like in the background where you live? Excellent work and I agree pick them all and alternate them from time to time.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 1:18 pm)
Jennifer O. (aka. Romeo and Mae) 

WOW, you have a beautiful family! And you DO NOT look like you just had a baby! My vote is for either #2 or #4. :)

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 12:32 pm)

Love the first one. And I love how different your little girls look from each other.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 2:39 am)

WOW! These are amazing! Your family is BEAUTIFUL! My vote is for #3.

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 1:32 am)

The third one is the best!

 ( Oct 3rd, 2010 12:55 am)

#3 is my favorite. Love your skirt!

How horrible they are all beautiful and perfect! Is there really only one you can pick? I would have such a hard time picking, oh what if you make them all big and then rotate them. Put one up for a while then another one. I would hate to have to make the decision, your little one’s photograph so perfectly. At least when my kids get photographed one or the other isn’t always paying attention so usually only a handful of both of them looking at the same time come out so it makes my decision easier, LOL. I usually have to order a few of one and a few of the other and if I’m lucky 1 photo of the both. Maybe once they are older they will cooperate better. Oh I wish you had posted some of the Disney ones, I LOVE DISNEY, big fan and luckily we live in California so we are lucky to go often thanks to passes.

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 6:55 pm)

I love the 3rd one, you can see all of you good and the background is stunning. It’s amazing!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 6:14 pm)

Thanks everyone for your help! I’m leaning towards #3 or #5. This location is actually in CA, I wish it was in Utah!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 5:31 pm)

My vote is number 2 or 3. These pictures are truly a family treasure!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 5:25 pm)
Misty Brandow 

First off your family is ADORABLE! The outfit that you chose are amazing! I would never have thought to put something like this together and yet it looks SO SO SO amazing! I love it!! I also love the white and cream dresses that your girls are wearing in the beach pictures. SO cute!

My favorite family pictures are the first one and the third one. I LOVE the background in the third one best. It looks painted in. It is so perfect.

Good luck! Whatever you choose is going to be amazing! =)

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 4:35 pm)

Gorgeous! your family is beautiful! i really like the first and second one, kinda leaning toward the second, but you can’t go wrong with any of them they are all amazing!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 3:52 pm)
Tiffany Page 

These are fabulous! I love #3 because of the contrast of all the rich colors. You can’t go wrong with any of them though! Oh, and I NEED your boots :)

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 3:39 pm)

I LOVE THESE!!! i would probably blow up every one of them and display them in my house! ha Seriously love these, could your family be any more beautiful? Great background, and love the one of the girls dancing.

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 2:39 pm)
Brooke Gardner 

I LOVE them! The third one is my favorite too to blow up. Love the colors you chose, your girls look awesome.

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 2:18 pm)

These are gorgeous! Your boots are smoking! I think my favorite is the 3rd but I really love the 5th photo too. They are all really great!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 1:36 pm)

you all have such style, how sassy! beautiful family pictures. i too like the third, but like the second- they are all gorgeous, love you choice of outfits for each. LOVE THOSE BOOTS & all the colors- you are super creative! Gorgeous family!

 ( Oct 2nd, 2010 1:24 pm)

These are seriously so beautiful. I totally have picture envy right now. My favorite family photo is #3 and I love the baby’s smile in #2.

Gorgeous photos! Love the vineyard!
My favorite is the 3rd one down. But they all are so beautiful. You have such a cute family.

Ainsley Piel 

I like the 3rd one down – y’all are super sharp, the colors are super vibrant and the background is just GORGEOUS (matching your gorgeous family)!! So, that’s my pick! Or the first one…but definitely out of those two!
