Capturing My Family

It's been a few years since we have had family "portraits" taken but for some reason, with all this new talk of cancer and surgery I felt a NEED to capture the moments of us together. My friend Laureen generously, amazingly, and overwhelmingly offered her services to do a photo shoot.

Now if you know teenagers, you know that this sort of thing is not high on their priority list of fun things to do. You add to that fact that our photo shoot was done DURING a Canucks Playoff Game which is at the absolute top of the fun things to do list at our house, and well, let it hereby be known that Laureen Carruthers is a MIRACLE WORKER.


These are a few of the pictures she took, go to her blog to check out some more. Go to her site if you ever need a photographer. Her work is a amazing.

Because not only did she take some amazing pictures of my family but Laureen (and the magic of her camera) managed to make me NOT look like the tired and stressed mom I am. Thank you Laureen for giving me this opportunity to reflect on the beauty of my family. The joy these pictures have brought me is enormous!

Jen, these are amazing. I TOTALLY understand the "teenager-photo" thing. You are a good looking bunch!

These pics are beautiful. You can see how protective your sons are of you in the first one. Their loyalty to their mother will last a lifetime.

I don't know what to say. If I say, "Yeah, she's amazing!" you might think I'm commenting on her Photoshopping qualities. JK She's great. These are beautiful. HOpe you're feeling better.
