More Pictures....

I took the rest of the kids up the canyon today for pictures. Can you belive that I have not had all of the kids together professionally since Chloee was 10 months old? Rhett wasn't even around then. Granted these aren't professional either, but they are beautiful nonetheless. Fall is my favorite time of year.



Rhett's got that Popeye smile going on in this one again!!
I think this is my favorite one though.....

I LOVED this one, but I moved the camera, and cut alot of Rhett's body off. Bummer.
I do really like this one, because Hunter always seems to be protecting Rhett and Chloee, and this picture holds true to his personality.

Then I took some single shots of the other kids since we didn't order school pictures this year. WAY too expensive!!
Dakota Kevin 13 years old......


Chloee Louise 6 years old.......



Hunter Craig 10 years old.........

I think Andy and I make some pretty cute kids if I do say so myself!!

The Bryant Family said...

Awesome pictures, I too love the ones of them laying in the grass. Your daughter is so darn cute...all of them are actually.

Ann said...

Forget professional photos these are fantastic! You did a great job taking pictures of your beautiful family! If I lived near you I would totally have you take pictures of our family. Now when do we get to see pictures of you and Andy?

DTanner said...

Great pictures! Now you have the same problem I do... choosing which ones to frame.

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

Those are such beautiful pictures!!

Pam said...

Kei~ Thanks!! We are kind of attached to them...maybe a little biased when it comes to cuteness too!!

Erin~ Just think if we get based in Virgina in the next couple of years you and Jesse can come with us!!

Tuck's Mom~ (Totally just had a brain fart and lost your name, I'm getting old) Thanks!! I think we are going to have to keep Chloee locked up during her Jr high and High school years, either that or her 3 brothers and dad will be sitting on the porch with shotguns whenever she has a date!!

Ann~ (blush) awwww, thanks!! I wish you lived near here, I would totally take your picts!! Maybe you can see some picts of Andy and I when I loose my last 10 lbs!! ;)

No really, on Sunday we are going up and my sister is supposed to take them along with the whole family. I hope there's still some leaves on the trees!!

Niksmom said...

Pam, these are GORGEOUS! And you know, you amaze me; so many people who have gone through what you have inthe last few days (let alone months and months!) wouldn't have the energy or desire to go off and take their kids out for picture sessions. You go, girl! xo

BiLlY, sAm, AnD bOyS!!! said...

Barbara Manatee said...

you really did do a great job on there...GLAD you didn't pay for prof pics or school pics...yours are way better and LOVE the scenery!!

Michelle said...

Gorgeous...all of them! Can I come there so you can photograph my kids? Actually, can I just come there to get away? Love yah!

RK said...

Phenomenal pictures! I don't think I'd ever pay for professional pics again if I had that scenery available once a year and those gorgeous subjects to photograph! You SHOULD be proud!!

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

Those are some great pics and yes you two do make beautiful kids!

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

Those are FABULOUS! Your kids are definitely most beautiful! (Even the boys, but don't tell them I said that! LOL)

rachel said...

Love 'em! You did a great job! A great looking group you've got there.

Kaden and Angel Ava's mommy said...

I agree...you guys do make some adorable kids. I never realized how handsome Dakota is...he should really let you take pictures of him more often. I love all of the pictures, but my favorite are of the four of them laying down in the grass. Too sticken cute!!! You had some awesome models. They are all very beautiful kids!!!

Pam said...

Deana~ I know....how will I ever choose which one to frame?!?!?

Melissa~ Thank You!!

Niksmom~ You know, it was super relaxing, and the kids all had fun. There wasn't any water in the river so they got to play in it and run around. It was a time to get away and have fun!! Thanks though!!

Sam~ Yes they are loved....and when are we going to get together for that play date????

Barbra~ Oh I am so glad we didn't get the picts from the school either. Last year the only one that turned out good was Rhett's and I ended up never hanging them!! Waste of money it was!!

Michelle~ YES!!! Please come here!! Plenty of room and we found the missing snake! You know I love yah too. Hugs my BFF!!

RK~ Thanks!! Congrats by the way!! I am super excited for Braska to be a big sister!!

Shannon~ Thanks!! We sure love the little tykes!!

Renee~ I promise my lips are sealed!! Andy is joining the Navy Reserves by the way....thanks for the info!!

Rachel~ Thanks!! How are you doing?

Amy~ Dakota is handsome isn't he? I wish he would let me take more pictures of him. I had to bribe him with a Bionical to get these done. Lol, at least I know how to get the job done!!

They actually weren't laying in the grass, it was in the dirt at a campground that just happened to be covered with leaves....You should have seen the back of Chloee's white sweater when she got up!! Thank heavens for stain sticks!! ;)

too cute

AZ Chapman said...

too cute

Kyle, Aimee and Ava said...

So cute... way better then ANY school picture! I really think you should look at doing photography professionally!

Emily said...

Fabulous pictures and kids! Much better than those boring school pictures anyways!

Pam said...

Az~ Thank you!!

Aimee~ I want to so bad, but I need a new camera, one that is a bit better. This one we have had forever and it's about ready to bite the dust. Alas no mooola to buy a new one for now. But thanks for the compliment!!

Emily~ I know, way better than those boring school photo's huh!!

Brent & Jodie said...

Oh my goodness, those are awesome! Of course it helps that all of your kids are incredibly adorable! I think you should seriously consider photography as a career!!

My Three Sons said...

Pam, I love the fall pics as well. We have a really neat County Park by my house that has a lot of trees and if it could stop raining long enough I would like to get the boys up there so we can get some pics. If not, I have two trees in my front yard that the leaves turn a vibrant red. Gorgeous! I will try there.

Anyways, I too love the one with the 4 laying in the campgrond. That is too cute. I think I would frame that one.
I didn't buy school pictures of my boys either. They will have those in their yearbook but I think I have taken better pics of the boys so I don't really want to waste money on the school pics. Besides, one of my lovely boys decided to wear a chicago cubs t-shirt. Lovely :-).
Thanks for your comment. It's nice to still have so much support. I actually had 8 comments and 6 were very supportive. The 7th was a friend of the ex and the 8th I'm sure was the ex. So I since I'm trying to make my situation better, I'm just going to leave it alone. I think maybe I'll just give up hope all together.
Thanks again and I appreciate the birthday wish.

Your friend forever,

Kaci

PS, I got your private e-mail and I'll forward it to the right spot.

The pictures are adorable, but it doesn't hurt that the kids are so photogenic!!

We just did the $7.99 Target pics...blah! If we had fall leaves in AZ, I would COPYCAT you!

Maybe photography is in your future?!

Julie said...

Wow those pics are great! I wouldn't pay for pics ever again if I could take photos like that! And yes, the subjects are gorgeous too!

sarah said...

Love the pics!! You do have some gorgeous kids!! Now I'm off to the woods to take some pics myself!!!

FISHSTIX said...

O.M.G. Dakota is so devastatingly handsome, he is going to break some girls heart one day!

Fabulous pictures Pam I would trade one's like these for all the horrible one's that were taken of my kids at school! :)

Becca said...

WONDERFUL pics, Pam! I love all of them! And Chloee looks so grown up! I hope Andy's feeling better, and if you end up in Virginia at any time,we can get Sammi and Rhett together for that playdate!

Heather said...

Beautiful pictures.Beautiful children,each and everyone of them!

Shari said...

Your kids are beautful! I love autumn, but our leaves are not near as pretty compared to where you are! Gorgeous!

Mrs Wibbs said...

Pam, these are such beautiful pictures - and I know many have said it but I'll say it again: Dakota is soooo handsome!! And so is Hunter! Your Chloee is gorgeous, a true little princess! As for Rhett, well..... He's so delicious... Yummmy yum :p
You have a stunning family my dear!! And well done for taking such awesome pictures, I reckon you could set yourself up as a freelance photographer to earn a few bucks on the side...? You've definitely got 'the eye'!
Love ya
Mrs Wibbs xoxox
