New Family Photos!

The day before Ben was baptized, we met up with our great friend Dan, of Dan Shaw Photography, and took some new family photos at Lake Elizabeth in Fremont. These are most of my favorites.

It's really making me want to take down everything in my home, put in new pictures, spray paint frames, make new art, and put it all back up. Sounds exhausting.
With Mom and Dad and his Godparents, Scott (Smalls) and my sister Stephanie, who were also
our best man and maid of honor.

 This is squinch face. We see it a lot these days. I don't know where it comes from, but he will squeeze his eyes shut and breathe really fast in and out of his nose, its so adorable and funny. Check out the "gelled" hair (baby wipe gel). We had a little bit of crazy bedhead goin on before the photo shoot and had to slick that wispy stuff down.

My tired boy was ready for a nap the minute we got there. What you don't see is the five other people literally jumping up and down behind Dan, yelling and shaking toys in the air. Ben cracked about two smiles and was spent. Oh well!


  1. I love the one of Ben sitting in the grass with his squinty eyes. He looks so pleased with himself! The first picture is also a high contender. You have such a beautiful family!

  2. Also, totally random but thought I would share. Each time I try to comment on your blog, when I choose post comment it won't allow me to actually post, but when I choose preview it then lets me sign in and spell out the word and post. It's backwards (I am using my google account to comment). Just an FYI!
