The Smug Family Photos, Summer '12

"Oh, GOD," I can just hear you worrying. "Here's another one of those show-offy blog posts in which the blogger assumes we're interested in seeing 4,572,000 smug family photos. What's next - a bullet point list of what she ate for breakfast, and how it was somehow better than yours?"

Um.

No, but I am afraid you're stuck today with a few photos my playgroup & photographer friend, Ziem of Ziem Photography, took around Master P's second birthday. Thing is, I'm tired of moaning about my defective ladybits, and I'm looking for ways to stay positive.  Yes, really. I know that I have much to be grateful for, and I'm not only talking about my frankly excellent taste in shoes.

Plus, I want to shamelessly brag about Z, whom any of you needing wedding or portrait photography work here in Austin need to hire immediately - and no, she didn't ask / pay / extort me to do this. Not only is she the most talented and professional photographer I've ever worked with, she's a great friend and kind of irritatingly nice and Pretty too.

Mildly Relevant Sidebar: what's with emphatically un-pregnant me being surrounded not only by pregnant people lately, but those teeny tiny pregnant sorts who don't gain any weight and get that alleged "glow" I never even made a passing acquaintance with? I mean, couldn't just *one* of them get a hideous acne outbreak? It's the least they could do. Where's J. Simpson when I need her - she's still pregnant, right?

Ahem.

Anyhow, if you'll please forgive me the Smug Photo moment (and the Facebook repeat for friends there) - here's to the good that is right now, which is admittedly very good indeed:

Wonderful photos! I especially love the last one!

Mrs. Type A said...

oh my god, the last pic of you three is SO good!!! Gorgeous! And yes, I hate those preggo ladies that you can't even tell are pregnant from the back. I always tell my husband...don't expect I'm going to look like that!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

Ahhhh, you are such a beautiful family!! Love Master P's sweet face, such beautiful expressions she captured!

Aaaah so many comments: I spy a Webster Tar-jay dress. Fabulous.

Stop with the cuteness, it is too much.

My mom, who has 2 children in their twenties, to this DAY still complains about women who you can't tell are pregnant from behind. She gives them the stinkeye. My mom got rilllllll big when she was preggers. No glow for her either.

I expect to see that last picture on a Christmas card this year.

And there will be an e-mail headed your way from me shortly.

Happy Friday!!!

Yeah yeah, I know I commented on FB too, but love them! Adorable family!!!

Rachelle said...

Those are darling, darling family pictures! Is AH a reluctant picture taker by any chance? I ask b/c my darling hubby tends to look at picture taking, especially by "extravagant, over-priced shutterbugs" as akin to getting blood drawn. So, I'm always on the lookout for photographers that set husbands at ease.

Kristen said...

Such a gorgeous family :) How do you deal with such cuteness on a daily basis? ps I got this dress too! Webster's the best thing to happen to target in a while!

Beach Bum & Baby said...

Clemson Girl said...

Amy @ Forever 29 said...

I die over his sweet little face! Family pics are on our fall to-do list and I could only hope they turn out half as good as yours! Quite the Pretty family indeed.

The Shabby Princess said...

Dear gawd you are gorgeous and have an equally gorgeous family. I can't wait to catch up with you over a double double Animal Style--surely that helps defective lady bits, right? xo
