I don't know about you, but typically around this time of year we start thinking about family pictures and whether we have the one for the Christmas card. ☺ I've been spoiled because my sister takes beautiful photographs and we've been the lucky recipients of her work most years. But she lives in another state and I recently realized she wasn't going to be able to help us this fall! So I was excited when Portrait Innovations reached out to me about their studio options. Typically, we do outdoor photographs and we hadn't been to a studio in about 7 (?) years! So I was a little nervous about how the pictures would turn out. (I've seen some terrible studio pics, y'all! 😆
But at the end of day, I was thankful to catch the sweet memories of our kids at this age. I'm totally biased, but I love each of their sweet faces in the pictures. Cuz we're in that season where time is starting to fly! 😢
If you're not familiar with our family, yes, 2 are adopted! We are blessed with 8, 6, 6 & 5 year olds. They keep life exciting!
We think the "perfect picture" involves a little bit of personality peaking out from everyone. ☺
We also got a great deal on ordering Christmas cards right from the studio! They have a variety of options for Christmas gifts: photo books, calendars, mugs + much more.
Because these busy parents gotta multi-task everything! 😉
A long day at school, an hour drive through traffic and then a photo shoot? Without a doubt, we pushed them a little extra this day. :) I was thankful that our photographer certainly understood the challenges in working with kids. She worked quickly, moved things around and got us in and out as quickly as she could!

I received compensation, but I never promote anything my family doesn't thoroughly love!
Blowing bubbles helps my toddler pose for pictures.
Snacks have helped my little girl to be able to be out and about and calm in public for longer. We did photos with her when she was a baby but I plan to bring snacks for future photoshoots!
Remember kids are kids...not robots able to sit still and perfectly for every pose. :)
Cute pics!! We need new ones...ours are woefully old!
Those are some super cute pictures!! I would love to get ones of my family! :)
We have not fone professional pictures since my twins were born 10 years ago. We do lots of pictures at home though and always try to loosen the kids up by doing silly faces first
Would love family photos with my newest addition.
Don't expect much and be happy with what you get
my best tip is to let everyone be themselves. don't force anyone to do things that make them uncomfortable!
Well fed kiddos are the key for my guys!
Love all the pictures of my kids from there!
We have been impressed with them. The photos turn out crisp and clear and the photographers are patient and professional when dealing with kids!
Love the pics! My tip is feed them first!!
Snacks and bribery!
Bribes and/or threats, a solid nap first, and no empty tummies!
Best tip for photos is to make it fun rather than a chore.
What a beautiful family! The photo reflects your beauty inside and out!!
I pretty much get through my day with lots of snacks lol. I always have a couple different kinds Incase she gets bored.
We love Portrait Innovations. Great photos.
Timing is everything, right after a special breakfast of donuts has been the best photo time with a toddler.
I always make sure the kids take a nap before we go to a family photo shoot
Beautiful beautiful pictures <3
I haven't ever done a professional family sitting but I imagine a good night's rest for all and do not scheduled a sitting close to a child nap time.
We're in desperate need for family photos!
Your pucs turnes out great! My you geat turns 1 next mo th and I really would lovw to get a photo of our family together!
Tip: Promise the kids a silly pose after a serious one.
They do take great pictures and are so patient with the kiddos!
I got nothing... Having one was easy on photo shoots now with two.. I am lost. I just go with the flow.
Love the pics! My tip is feeding them first!!thanks a lot
