Family Pictures

As you can tell, right from the beginning, Malakai was not very pleased with this situation. (Overall, though, I think this one turned out pretty darn good.)

And he sure as heck wasn't going to be holding anyone's hand.

With many bribes (and threats) we were able to convince Braeden (10) that smiling for his photo was the best idea.

Abbey (6) is a natural.

No matter how I tried, I could not convince Meg (5) that she should trade in her "posed" look for a natural and relaxed smile.

Ditto that for Shea (3). LOL!

This was, literally, the only moment Kai (1) was not crying.

A bit of family monkey-pile fun!

What do you think - colour or black and white? I just can't choose!

These fabulous family pictures were taken by the talented (and patient), Kai Smyth of Click on her blog to see previews from her shoots.


  1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Black and White photos! Although I must say, they are all fabulous photos!

  12. So cute! I like all of them, but I tend to lean towards black and white. You're kiddos are beautiful. You are definately a BUSY mama!

  13. Wow - absolutely fabulous photos! The B&W fam shot is the best. What angelic faces your sweet babies have!
    But my question is - what magic did you use to get them all to look good in ONE shot? I only have four and NEVER would we get pics like this!
