Kim Orlandini Photography

I think most of our Thanksgiving cards have made it through snail mail, and it is safe that I won't be spoiling anything by sharing some of our family pictures that our friend Kim Orlandini Photography took. :)

What I love most is that they aren't just pictures for me, they have a story behind each one of them. That makes them all the more special. 

First off, we started the shoot with Bina having a large accident!! The sequence of pictures makes me laugh.
Devin was a little shy. If he looked at the camera, he wouldn't smile. When all of us weren't looking {and trying} to make him smile, Devin decided to perform. Of course.
It has been a long time since Paul and I had pictures, just the two of us. Is it bad say that I love these more than any of the other pictures? Paul is serious, and I am not. So, I'll admit it was a little hard for me to take this picture...but it is my favorite.
But then we have the next picture that is so me, I am positive something inappropriate was said. :)
Ever since Paul and I were dating we have had this unique way of holding hands. I don't know how it started, but it is the only way we hold hands 14 years later. I love that Kim got this on film.
Of course my kids are all adorable, and I can see their different personalities in the pictures. The oldest loving to pose, the middle putting on the charm until he knows it safe to be crazy, and the baby being content in Mommy's arms.
I can't wait until the next time we have family pictures done, even if Paul only says once a year. :)
Thank you Kim...I love every single one!

I loved your card, it's gorgeous and I will look at it every day in my kitchen. Thank you for sending it!

I love all the photos, but especially the one of you and Paul laughing.

By the way, Ryan and I hold hands exactly that same way! I've never seen anyone else but us hold that way so it made me smile.

I've got your card on my fridge. Love it! These pictures are AMAZING. I may need to hire her for our next family pictures since our last photographer is now WAAAYYYY out of the ballpark for price. You guys have such a cute family!
