Cannot believe I forgot...

Ack! I was just checking back a few posts and realized I missed a major event!

So, here's the back story. With both pregnancies, I joined message boards on to talk with people due the same month that I was due. From Max's birth board I connected with a wonderful group of ladies that later formed a private Google group and that I still keep in touch with, 5 years later. Well, with Luke I decided to give it another shot. Same thing happened - I was fortunate enough to connect with a wonderful group of women that eventually moved to a private board. It's been a wonderful support network, and a source of inspiration and entertainment.

One of the women from Luke's birth board is the divine Emily Southerland, a professional mama and photographer from St. Louis. As long as I have known her, I have drooled over her work, and prayed that someday, somehow, I would get to have her photograph my family. Well, as luck would have it, another event brought her to Oregon, and Memorial Day weekend she stayed with us and took the most amazing family pictures.

So, here's your chance to check them out. Click here. Select "Clients" from the menu at the bottom, and our password is "lukenmax".

I still can't believe how well she captured our family. It's gotta be a combination of amazing talent, hard work, and the ability to make people feel truly comfortable just being themselves. Hope you enjoy them!

I am so jealous! I am praying she comes to Denver before I have my next baby. I would love to get her to come here! She is amazing!

You guys are such a cute family!
Your boys spirit is definitely captured! They are so handsome!

Fabulous! I love the ones at home. I never realized how much Max's hair matches Dan's, and how much Luke's hair matches yours. Love these pictures, enjoy picking out your faves! :)

<3 <3 I adore the Young family. This was as much an honor for me as it was for you. I hope you truly know that.

Thank you. We'll need to do it again at least once before the boys are all grown. :)
