Destinee Blau Photography

My cousin-in-law, Destinee, is a professional photographer.

Let me tell you, that girl has got skills.

She did a photo shoot for us back in Sept. We had to wake Caroline up from her afternoon nap. For future reference, I don't recommend that. She was a grumpy, squirmy baby the whole time. When we finished the shoot I thought to myself, "Nice try, but none of those pictures are going to work out."

I don't know how she did it, but Destinee managed to get some great shots. I LOVE these pics. If you want to see what kind of magic she can work on you and/or your family, visit her website for more info.

I think this will be our Christmas card photo.
Act surprised when you get one. :)

We are a happy family

Candid looking-at-something-cool-below-the-bridge
(Except B who thinks it's even cooler to look at the camera.)

I love the grass in this one.
And Care Bear biting her lower lip.

I like B's feet and W's sassy pose.

One of my favorites!

My left eye is slightly smaller than my right.
Do I always look like that?

Huh. It's the same way in this one. I guess so.
Just wanna kiss those little cheeks!
(hers, of course)

C+B+W= Crazy, but wonderful.

Grandpa, I found the rest of my dwarfs:
Excited

Surprised

Delighted

Playful

Relaxed

Pensive

Wow those turned out great! We just went to JC Penny this week and I keep thinking to myself that I should have a real photographer do pictures for us someday. I love outside photography.

Once when I was getting my hair cut, the lady asked me to smile so she could see which eye was bigger. She then said I'm supposed to part my so it falls over the bigger eye and makes the smaller one not look so small. Unfortunately I have always parted my hair opposite that, so I have an extremely small looking right eye. I think that's normal though.

I love it! I really like the one of you guys on the bridge where you like B's feet and Whit's pose. I also love the one of you guys in the grass just being the family that you are:) It tells a story, ya know? Even though you found the eye thing (which I did not notice on facebook until you mentioned it) I love the one of you and Andrew because you look soooooo proud to be his wife. Awesome!!!

I love you guys:)

These are awesome! I think the second one is my favorite family shot. And the one of you and Caroline is adorable!

We like all the pictures.
What a beautiful family.

There's nothing wrong with your eyes. They're beautiful.
You're just winking at the camera.

Those are amazing pictures! Caroline doesn't look grumpy at all! Cousin photographers are the best, I think. I have one, too. : )

You guys are too pretty! I love it all! And, you know I think you've got great hair, but that was a fantastic hair day!
