family pictures || fall 2015

i know i just recently posted some family pictures with our extended family, but as i thought about christmas cards, i wanted to do something a little different.

i wasn't going to have them done, but on a whim i text my sister in law to see if she had any time available to snap a few and it just worked out that we could do it that very next day.
(cue me running around like a crazy person trying to coordinate outfits on the same day my wallet was stolen... yikes!)

why are family pictures the most stressful thing ever?!?!  of course, remi didn't nap before, then we managed to lose her headband on the car ride to the location, so we all spent 30 minutes running around provo looking for ANYTHING that could work as a headband, and by the time we started taking pictures, remi was done.  and i mean DONE!  she threw probably her biggest fit to date.
of course, i felt like it was just a big, fat, hot mess but trina managed to capture some diamonds in the
big old patch of rough

the kids were pretty much stone cold in family pictures, but at least they are both looking.  looking through all the photos made me realize how much brooks and remi look alike.  in some of the pictures they are making the exact same face with the same expression.

 brooks was an absolute gem.  bribed with a sucker and he whipped out all the smiles.  let's talk about how he looks like he's FIVE!  i think it might be the shaved head?  also, yeah..we shaved his head and although it's not my favorite and i prefer him with hair, he is still a little cutie.

little miss sassy pants couldn't be bothered for pictures because the sucker was just too good.

classic hand on the hip.  i don't know why i do it?! seriously though, it's just a habit.  in almost every picture.

all the smiles :)

side note: way back when, when they announced that this temple was going to be a thing, matt was on his mission.  he was to get home in a year or so and i had my mind set that we were going to be one of the first couples to get married in the provo city center temple.  HA! four years and two kids later, it's still not done... so obviously that didn't work out.

also, don't ask why i'm all chatty cathy right now.  i just feel the need to express all of the things.
and kuddos to you for finishing.

book trina, she's great
