Several years ago we all pitched in for Mother’s Day and surprised Mrs Charlotte with family photos, which you can see here. Britt was like 8 months old I think when we had them done. Obviously a ton has changed in 6 years, including adding several grandkids to the family who weren’t represented in the family photos!

This year for Mother’s Day Casey put together having new photos taken as Mrs. Charlotte’s combined gift from all of us. Mrs. Charlotte was SO excited to be able to update her mantel picture frame (also another gift we all got her ha!) with updated photos of everyone. She chose for us all to wear navy, gray or white which worked out well because it’s colors we all had in our closets!

I did end up buying myself a new dress but who doesn’t love an excuse for that πŸ˜‰

Casey has had some photos done with Shelley Jean Smith in the past but this was my first time working with her. She’s BEYOND sweet and so flexible to meet us at 7:30 in the morning on a Sunday (June 3rd). All the kids were happy and it wasn’t hot yet and the lighting was very pretty. Shelly was so patient with our craziness and I think we got all the shots Mrs Charlotte was hoping for and did it all in like 45 minutes!

You can see Shelly’s work here and there is a contact link on her site to send her an email. She loves doing family photos and is super great to work with if you’re needing an update!

Here is a link for my dress, and here is a link for Mrs. Charlotte’s kimono (I have the same one and I had bought it for Casey and she let Mrs Charlotte borrow…I’m telling yall this kimono is awesome!)

The whole crew!!!

For us not discussing what we were wearing it really did all come together well πŸ™‚ 

Proud Grandparents

All the grand babies πŸ™‚ 

The grandsons

And granddaughters!

All the guys

And all the girls!

We are SO blessed to all have kids around the same ages and for them all to be such good friends. It’s such a special bond they all share. Some of our FAVORITE pictures from the photos we had taken 6 years ago were the bff cousin pics πŸ™‚ 

It was really important to Mrs Charlotte that we do them again and I LOVE how they came out:

Having all the pictures together makes me realize we did kinda miss a few haha we should have gotten individuals with Mrs. Charlotte and each adult child as well as Mr Rusty and each adult kid but randomly Zach has a solo pic with each of his parents and no one else does ha! Guess he’s the #goldenchild 

The Couples!

LOVE this of Courtney and Brad!!!

And US πŸ™‚ 

Huge thanks again to Shelly from Shelly Jean Smith! Mrs. Charlotte is SO happy to have her mantle up to date and I’m eager to get some printed to update our photo wall in my living room as well πŸ™‚

    Beautiful family pictures!! I usually don’t comment even though I read your blog regularly. I might have missed this…but is Casey not still married to Jordan?
