our new family photos

We had family photos taken a few weeks ago. It was an unseasonably warm and gorgeous day {which after being rained out twice before, it was a welcome surprise!}. We worked with Estepworks Photography and could not be happier with the images.




Baby girl isn’t walking on her own quite yet, but she loves holding hands and taking steps: and the boys and mommy & daddy happily oblige.



We spent an hour or so walking around Bellevue Botanical Gardens and the boys were completely in their element exploring, throwing sticks in the water,  jumping off rocks, trampling rare plants. Sorry Bellevue Botanical Gardens for that.






I’m so happy to have these images to remember this time in our family’s lives.

If you live in the Seattle area and are in need of a fabulous photographer, please feel free to contact Estepworks Photography.

    These could be an advertisement for something healthy or for life insurance or some sort of church. What a stunning family you have! The parents are not bad either~

    How fun! I didn’t realize you were from around here…as am I! So love our blog and the inspiration you provide. Glad you caught a sunny day! Here’s hoping the sun makes its way here and decides to stay awhile!

    Many blessings,

    wow gorgeous family!!!!

  16. Crystal May 9, 2011 at 4:22 pm #

    Nice pics…but wondering why if you have SO much talent decor/fashion didnt you put the baby girl in a cute colored diaper coverup? The cute floral dress and plain jane white diapers just dont do it. Something navy, purple or fuschia would have worked best on her.

    Beautiful pictures & beautiful family! I have been on your site MANY times, and somehow never seen a photo of you (I’m not the brightest tool). Anyhoot, I love your hair… mine is almost the same color and is out-of-control long, so now I have a photo of exactly what I want! :)

    Emily… absolutely darling. Your photographer did such a great job capturing the interaction and loving relationship of your family in her images. The boys crack me up! Audrey is growing and changing so. and…It’s great that you have embraced jeggings…they were made for you!
