One Foggy Morning

Oh, Ralphie. You never stop blowing my mind with your amazing-ness.

We went a little more dressy this time since our last round of photos with Ralphie in 2009 was much more casual. Also, we happened to schedule for a moment where I owned exactly no jeans that I liked. That may have had something to do with the fact that I made Bart iron a shirt on a Saturday morning.

And yes, it really was this beautiful in late March in Texas. And the fog is all real – it was like having a photo shoot in Wuthering Heights (if Wuthering Heights involved a whole lot of yellow flowers and a happy family, instead of people who show their love by hating each other for an entire lifetime. So basically not like Wuthering Heights at all, actually, now that I come to think of it).

When Ella saw this picture, she said, “I cry wif Dadda”

  1. I LOVE these photos! I especially like the ones of you guys in the grass, reading. How quaint. 🙂 Every once in a while I think that I want to do family photos, but then I remember it's still just me and my husband and that would be pretty much exactly the same as our engagement photos lol. Someday . . .

  2. could you be a more beautiful family?!?! seriously, you are all so gorgeous! except for bart, he's a very manly handsome (unless he doesn't mind be called gorgeous and then he's gorgeous, too). and that picture of ella exclaiming over the flower! my ovaries! they burst!

  3. I know I already told you, but these are so gorgeous. Ralphie is amazing. I need her to live by me.

  4. OH! so terrific! If I had to pick favorites I'd go with the first black and white (her eyes!!), the ring around the rosie one, and the one where he's picking you up.

    Which reminds me, still waiting on a book list…

  5. How lovely! Ella's little gingham dress is too much. I love the shot of you and Bart where he's lifting you up off the ground… how romantic 🙂

  7. Love these, and that little munchkin of yours is so cute I want to eat her up with a spoon! Oh my goodness!!

  9. I love the flowers and fog–so cute! I especially like the ring around the rosie and reading pics. Adorable.

  11. The love in your family just jumps out of these photos.
    Ella has the sweetest face! What a beautiful girl.

  13. I was up at 3 AM this morning with my monthly back injury and I read this while I was up. It was breathtaking! Ralphie did such a fantastic job capturing your sweet family and could Ella be any more darling? Seriously, I'm smitten. I made a point of leaving this post unread in my reader so I could get back to it today and leave a comment.

  14. That first close up of Ella is just perfect. She is so sweet and pretty. I love all of them.

  15. 1. I've wanted Ralphie (whom I don't ah…know) to be my family photographer for at least two years now. This is thanks to you, if you hadn't yet figured this out. 2. These photos are gorgeous. 3. You are all a bit too cute, I want to pinch the screen. 4. "Julie Beck" has commented above me…uh… 😛
