Oh my! My poor family. I love getting family pictures done, so I do it often. My husband is very patient with me and is usually a good sport about it (for the first half at least) Myla lives to pose for a camera, so we are golden there, and Vivian is just sweet and whatever happens, happens. No way she was going to give me a big smile, though. Not happening. My good friend Johanna takes our pictures, and has for years, so we always come up with some cool place we want to try next. She came up with the idea of this beautiful lavender field. I loved it so we planned it all out. Well, turns out there is a small window of time that the lavender is in bloom, so we had to take our pics in July. It was so hot. Like SO hot. 109 degrees. We had to take a break in the middle of pictures to go sit in the air conditioned car. Haha my poor family, WE WILL TAKE PICTURES! They are sweet, less sweet in 109 degrees and dripping from sweat, but still sweet and I love them.
