Family Pictures

My sweet sister-in-law, Marissa, took some pictures of us over Thanksgiving and I couldn't love them any more than I do!  We had planned these pictures for weeks and I stressed about our outfits for just as long.  I had hoped the session would be as easy and painless as possible and that we wouldn't be stressed out getting ready for them.  Of course, we are Michelsons through and through, so naturally we were scrambling to get everyone ready in time, but the session itself was effortless.  Marissa is a natural behind the lens and even though Sydney was making her work for a smile, she got some great shots of the girls and our family.

My apologies for picture overload, but I'm sure you are used to that around here.  ;)

➹ Pouty face.  She did not want to smile at all! ➹



➹ And all this one wanted to do was strike different poses! Ha. ➹

We are so lucky {and grateful} to have such a talented photographer in our family.

I agree Marissa did a wonderful job. I know I am a little prejudice but I think she had a beautiful family to work with so it's no wonder the pictures turned out great. * Not taking any photography ability away from Marissa, just saying!!
