I had been meaning to share and meaning to share, but then I didn't want to spoil our Christmas card photo, but as it turns out, my favorite photo that I ended up using on our Christmas card, I had already shared, and then as the holidays came and went, time got away from me. I've already shared most of these on Instagram, but for those who don't follow me there, I thought I would share all of our family photos from our photo session with Erika from Free Bird Photography here too.
Erika is my friend, Brooke, from college's best friend and we met at Brooke's bachelorette party many years ago. She actually lives in Colorado but her family lives in LA so I always sign up for one of her photo sessions that she does while she is out here visiting her family. She's done our family photos for the past three years [2014 // 2015] and each year I fall more and more in love with them. She's simply the best! All of these photos were taken by Erika in Griffith Park in Los Angeles, CA in late September 2016.
Though they can be stressful, family photos are my very favorite thing to do each year. I try to take photos all throughout the year, and while I have TONS of Mason and a good amount of Seth/Mason, me/Mason, and some of all of us, I love the way that a professional can capture us all together. Plus, she definitely knows her way around the camera better than I do. Times a million.
Thank you so much for capturing this pictures for us, Erika! I can't wait to have you do it again this year!
