The Blue Family 2012

I had the immense privilege of getting to photograph the beautiful Blue family last Friday night!!  What made this photo shoot even more special was that I did their family photos last year as well!!  I was so excited that they would entrust me with their photos again!! It also made me nervous because I couldn't rely on the same poses I do for families...I had to be creative and come up with something that would be different than their pictures last year (I hope I achieved that....).

But onto the family!  I love photographing the Blues because they're fun, genuine, and you can just tell they all love each other.  (It doesn't hurt that they're one gorgeous family too! :)  They are an absolute joy to photograph.

We took these pictures at the house they're currently living in.  They're getting ready to move and wanted to take pictures at this house on the lake to remember their time there.

 Loved the lake!!

I hope these pictures adequately portray how fun, beautiful, loving, and wonderful this family is!  Enjoy!

The three Blue girls!  (Aren't they beautiful?!)

All the Blue children...left to right:  Lily, Kendall, Trinity, Micah

This is my favorite picture of Trinity. :)

 Can you tell that I had a hard time narrowing down pictures? :)

 Love her big blue eyes!

While I was taking pictures with the youngest, the rest of the family was playing ball together. :)

Last year Trinity did not like having me take her all.  This year was the total opposite!

 Love these two photos!

 Daddy and his boy. :)

Mama and the girls.

Lily loved having Trinity push her. :)

 Ahh!!  Their kids are so beautiful!!

Nothin' like climbing a tree! :)

I have no idea what Mrs. Blue was doing to get them to smile, but obviously it was very funny! :)

Watching some geese pass by on the lake.

Lily on the move. :)

This is where Mrs. Blue reads her devotions in the pretty and peaceful!

Rain, the Blue's poodle, came outside for a little bit during the photo shoot.

 So cute. :)

There you have the Blue family!  Aren't they great?

P.S. - I really did try to narrow down the pictures but there were so many good ones I couldn't help myself.  Blue family, you have 238 pictures coming your way soon! :)
