we took our family pictures a couple weeks ago. and can i just say it was one of the saddest days since i’ve been married? it started pouring rain the moment we started to take pictures, my husband and i got in a fight while changing for our 2nd outfit in the car, i started crying and with the rain not stopping but getting even more heavy, i cried some more and didn’t even bother to get out of the car while i just told my husband to tell the photographer we were done and went home. our poor photographer.
all that time i put into outfit planning, headbands/necklaces i stayed up late the night before making for my little girls, not even getting a chance to put on our 2nd outfit…our photographer commuting from salt lake to take just 10 mins. worth of pictures…went to waste. when i think about it it makes me sad all over again. do your husbands HATE/ABHOR taking pictures of any kind? SIGH. at least these pictures were before all that. and pardon my moses parting the red sea. the rain did that to me. (i’m talking about my bangs.)
ariana with her signature smile. photos taken by shedaisy photography. she took these for only 10 mins. due to our unfortunate circumstance but i think she did a wonderful job. thanks for the beautiful photos! and also, the rain stopped about an hour later and was sunny and calm the rest of the day. talk about perfect timing.
Yes, my dear– my husband HATES/LOATHES/DESPISES/ABHORS family pictures. It's always a huge stresser for me, since I carefully plan the outfits to coordinate (but also to look like I didn't spend hours planning the outfits!), and then finding the photog, and the crazy expensive prices……….. anyway, I always look forward to the the end result, but getting there is like pur TORTURE!
In short, I feel your pain.
But your family is absolutely beautiful, and so are you! Somehow you got some gorgeous shots in before the rain, and I'd say it was worth it in the long run!
I agree!, husbands don´t mind how much time you´ll spend planning, preparing, organazing or even the money you pay for an event such as family photos to happen… in the end if everything goes bad… we are to blame but, still is worth it!!
That happened with my 3 year old birthday party.. my husband was having the idea, of just getting a piñata, and then giving candy and cake to the kids, but I decided to invest a little more and ended up making a princess and pirats themed party.
making story short IT WAS A BLAST!! but my husbad got very upset during the preparation,.. in the end he appologized!!
So, husbands are just like that.. but trust me, they all love to hear the complements of the beautiful family they have!! and that´s all because of us!!
Your pictures are gorgeous and your family is beautiful!! and it couldn´t be possible if it wasn´t for you!!!!

sometimes i swear that getting my husband to take family pictures is like taking him to get castrated. but yeah, at least you guys ended up with some awesome pictures before the rain!!
I take some pictures for people on the side, and ALWAYS, you can tell, the husband is being drug along. But hey, at least they know it's what their wife wants so they go along with it (even if they don't like it at all!)
absolutlely GORGEOUS family! wow!
oh you all look so cute!! absolutely beautiful family!:)*
wow for 10 minutes you have really good pics! What a goodlookin fam!
Those turned out beautiful! Just tell Jay to plan it all next time, Then he'll be more understanding.
Family pics are so stressful!
I think they turned out adorable! LOVE the girls coats! Getting Matt to take a normal picture is pretty much impossible, so frustrating! I totally know how you feel. We need to get together and let our kids play! Is there anytime you could?
Love your pictures! They turned out great!
I absolutely can feel your pain and frustration. Everytime we go out, and I thought the view was amazing, and wanted to take pictures of my husband and our baby girl, he was always annoyed by it, and refused to pose for me. I have to take candid shots all the time! If I ask him to take pictures of me and the baby, he will just do a very careless job, and most pictures came out badly positioned or focused on the background, leaving us so blury! He thinks I am only taking the pictures to show off. But to whom? My pictures are not public! Then he will constantly complaint to me that I didn't take enough great pictures, didn't post new pictures on my flickr on time, didn't make enough scrapbook pages, … MAN! I have no idea how to please him!
thanks everyone! I'm shocked and surprised that I'm not the only one who thinks family pictures are so stressful. And also about men not liking pictures. It makes me very relieved to know I'm not the only one that has to deal with this! That it's normal! 🙂
Sarah~ just by looking at the pictures I would have never known that you had a bad day! such a beautiful family you have there~~~~

Great pictures! You would never have known that you only shot for 10 minutes.
BTW, your boots are so cute! Where did you get them?
@chelsea: these were taken before all the bad stuff. 🙂
@dahlia: i got the boots at target about 2 yrs. ago.
My husband wasn't even there for our son's first photoshoot!
You have a gorgeous family.
I love your little girls!
@sharn: oh no! i'm so sorry! i hope he made it up by doing something amazing for you! and thank you desiree for your kind comment.

Yes, your husband, unfortunately, is not the only one who hates pictures. You look beautiful in your pics and don't look like you've changed at all since we were roaming the halls of good old Timpview High. 🙂 Thanks for sharing such wonderful glimpses of your life, I love reading your blog and seeing how incredibly creative you are! PS Your kids are adorable!! I am obsessed with Asian babies – I think they're the cutest babies EVER! And your kids take the cake!
Oh Sarah, I'm sorry you had a bad experience but the pics are great! I'm always the one taking pics in our family so I'm never in any of the pics…I guess all guys don't like taking pics.. Miss Adi and Ana..Sorry I missed Adi's bday..
