Two years ago, when we traveled to Boise for Thanksgiving, all of Zach’s sisters and their families were able to make the trip as well. Three of us had newborns (Eleanor was three months old, the other two – both born on the same day – were only about three weeks old). We seized the moment of having all of us together and headed to a portrait studio for family photos.
This year we weren’t sure until the last minute that all five siblings would be able to make it, so we didn’t book a studio spot. When it turned out we were all able to be there, we dressed up in casual-nice clothes and took the photos ourselves outside the family home. I think they turned out rather nice, myself.
