Family Pictures at the Beach...

When we went to Assateague, Maryland camping a few weeks ago, I decided that I wanted to get some family portraits on the beach. So here are some of my favorites......
How great it was that the horses were once again on the beach so I could take Ally's picture with them? She has a huge love of horses, and I wanted these pictures particularly because these are her 3rd birthday pictures.
It's hard to believe Collin is 17 and only 6 months shy of his 18th birthday. I will always treasure this picture because I know it is only a matter of time before he won't be able to go with us on summer adventures....and it is great to get a picture of all three of the kids together....not usually such an easy task! Ally couldn't ask for two better big brothers....

Here's my little Michael all grown up...he'll be 13 in a couple of months...he certainly isn't so little anymore! Still the jokester, he'll never be to old for a hug from mom! Check out Fred's face...LOL. He was only slightly perturbed that we were supposed to be pulling out of our campsite at this very moment because it was check out time!

If only I had remembered to take my sunglasses off in our family picture!!! Now we'll have to go back so we can get a better shot! (-:
I am surely blessed to have such a great family!!
We all have our challenges, but they only make us stronger!

Since I wanted Ally's pictures done for her 3rd birthday at the beach, I thought it would be extra special to make her a sundress. I was really happy with the way it turned out...I lined it with eyelet to make it heavier and let some of the eyelet hang below the hemline.

I changed all these pictures to Vintage using Pioneer Woman's actions in Photoshop CS3! If you are lucky enough to have photoshop, check it out!
