New Family Pictures 2013

Finally I found a photographer to help me with family photos this year.

Luke
Ben
They are twins...can you believe it?
Mom and Dad
We just did a little mini session with Josie, a sweet and talented girl that lives close to me.

We wore a mix of khaki green, browns/tan and grey. I let the boys just wear clothes that they usually wear to school instead of making them dress up. We look more like ourselves that way.

This year we will have a Christmas card.

Oh they are all fabulous. I love seeing the whole family together and the boys are so grown up. I love how they are so individual even if they are twins. Hugs, Marty

Kelly said...

Those are such good pictures! Your boys look very different from each other even though they're twins. I bet each one of them wants to show they're own style now that they're older. The picture of you and your husband is wonderful too!

Thanks Amanda....kids grow up so fast. :)

Down to Earth Style said...

So glad you stopped by. :) Thank you!

Thank you! I am always at odds with my hair. Grow out - cut it. Dark - light. Thank you for the compliment. Enjoy your weekend.

Down to Earth Style said...

They are totally opposite in every way. OS weird that it worked out that way. Love hearing from you - thanks for reading!

Down to Earth Style said...

Thanks.. :)

My kids change so fast - we didn't get pictures done last year and I was so sad. I love comparing their growth each year.
Get yours done - you won't regret it. :)

Down to Earth Style said...

You leave me the sweetest comments. Thank you, Marty.

Hey Kelly!
Yes, my boys have always been very different. It is probably because we always encouraged them to embrace their differences since they were little. We didn't want them to compete or think they had to be like each other.....I guess it worked. (too much sometimes). :)
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for leaving a comment.

Thank you Sally - so do you. I Iove getting us all together each year for a quick photo shoot. The kids change so much. I do too....cheeks - bigger, eyes -smaller

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

Fabulous! You have a gorgeous family!

Leslie Harris said...

Wow, what a great looking family. The boys are so darn cute. And you look so beautiful Holly! If I were you I'd be plastering my pictures everywhere :)
Thanks for sharing your Christmas photos I love them.

Gorgeous, Holly! I love your idea about casual dressing. After years of wrangling everyone into dress-up clothes, I started taking casual photos last year, and it worked out so much better--they actually smiled!

Thanks Amy!!! :)

Down to Earth Style said...

Thanks Leslie....I wore too much mascara in the picture...I tried to not look so tired and puffy but...well, thanks for complimenting me, that was very sweet. :)

Christine Vandormolen said...

Sandi @ The Primitive Skate said...

Love your pictures.
You have a Beautiful family!

Susan Lloyd said...

wow! first of all, I love and hate your blog. I love your style! it is mine; however, like Pinterest, I recent the fact that I am old (54) and don't have enough time to do all the things I see you do (and Pinterest). I don't know how you get the energy to do it all.
also, as you probably already know, one boy is the spitting image of you and the other of his dad. how fun is that!
keep on blogging and decorating. Merry Christmas

Bliss said...

And a fine looking family it is at that!

Cynthia said...

Holly, these are gorgeous pictures. What a gorgeous clan and happy. Love them!!

Holly, hope I get one of those beautiful pictures to put on my mantel. I just love the new you look. You and Marc look like newly weds. Ben and Luke always have taken great pictures. As much as I love the new pictures I have a hard time replacing their baby pictures on the mantel. Thanks for be such a wonderful daughter and friend. Love ya mom
