One of my favorite things to do is look at pictures from many years ago and compare them to now. For the past five years we've gotten our family pictures taken at Christmas-time for Christmas cards.
2009 by Kate Hawkley - we walked around our South Pasadena neighborhood (oh how I miss it so!) with our then-puppy Joey. He was our child then haha. But we were trying! TMI? Sorry.
2010 by Amelia Lyon - I had been a fan of Amelia's for years and when we found out we were moving to Los Angeles AND having a baby I booked her immediately for our first official pictures as a family of three.
2011 by Megan Papworth - this year we went up and around the Pasadena City Hall. I was about six weeks pregnant with Jane here and wanted oh-so-badly to tell the entire world but waited just a couple more weeks.
2012 by Jill Facer - our first Christmas pics as a family of four! To commemorate living in SoCal we took pictures at the beach, Newport Beach specifically, even though Chris dislikes the beach to his core, haha.
2013 by Mary Anne Miner - I saw Mary Anne's photos of families before the husbands/dads deployed and fell in love with her style. She's moving soon so we had to get our pics taken early! I'll do a full reveal in November. Yes, I know Fox looks like he's about to murder someone and Jane isn't even looking at the camera, but it pretty much sums up our life right now! Kids kids kids.
I’m from Seattle. Chris is from Denver. We met at BYU and got married in 2007 in Nauvoo, IL. Chris graduated from the USC School of Dentistry in 2013 through an Army scholarship and now we owe 4 years of dental service. We are stationed in Grafenwöhr, Germany and we LOVE to travel all around Europe! I’m a stay-at-home-working-mom to our son Fox and daughter Jane. Scrapbooking is my passion and I have my own signature collections with Pink Paislee called Fancy Free, Take Me Away, and Oh My Heart. I’m a blogger for Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, a teacher at Big Picture Classes and Craftsy, on the design team of Scrapbook & Cards Today and Kerri Bradford Studio, and I have an Etsy shop on the side. I love teaching in-person scrapbooking and bookbinding workshops whenever and wherever I can! Thanks for stopping by!
