Family Portraits – A Day at the Waterfalls

This has been a very busy week for the Vinez clan. We have family in from out of town, and it seems like the entire week has been full of doctors appointments, meetings, and things to do. To top it off, it was Fall Break for my kiddos, so I had all all 6 home, and had to keep them all entertained and happy. Whew.

On Thursday, hubby had the day off. Because the weather has been absolutely gorgeous around here, we decided we would take the kids to a local waterfall and get some family pictures. After all, it’s about time to get our Christmas cards ordered.

The falls were breathtaking, and since it was a Thursday, they weren’t crowded at all. At times we had the whole place all to ourselves. It was wonderful.

The kids had a blast at the falls, and I was able to walk away with some really great portraits of the kids, and of hubby and I. The only thing I couldn’t get was a family shot with all of us in it at one time, but I am really happy with what we did get.

I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you. As a warning, this may be picture overload, so just bear with me. Hopefully this will help you get to know my family a little better, and maybe it will even give you a few posing ideas for your own family photographs.

Ready? Here come the photos…….

What do you think?

I’m having a hard time picking which one to use for the Christmas cards this year. Which one is your favorite?

How hard is it for you to photograph your own kids? I’d love to hear your experiences!

    How did you get the little ones to pose so well? My boys have a hard time posing at the same time.

    The photos turned out beautifully and the waterfalls look so serene. We have a small waterfall at a park nearby where I live. I’ve taken the kids there for pictures a few times and it’s always a perfect setting for photos.

      They were taken at Helton Creek Falls. Do you know where Vogel State Park is located? The falls are close to there. If you need more directions, shoot me an email. 🙂
