New Family Portraits

My only request the last time Candice took pictures for us in Ohio was that I really wanted a family picture in front of our house. To me, it's more than just a family picture, it tells the story of where we were at that time. Oh, I knew I would miss that little house!
This time around, a portrait in front of our house wasn't an option, since we drove down to meet Candice in Provo while she was visiting and teaching some classes (plus, we don't own this house so I don't feel so attached to it). But since I don't know if we'll live in Utah next year, I really wanted a family picture that would bring back memories of living here. When Candice suggested taking a family picture on the ski lift at Sundance, I was immediately up for it (although a little terrified because Creed loose on a ski lift high in the air? As you can imagine, my hands did not leave his little waist).These pictures say "Utah" to me, and that makes me so happy.

I know Candice got some brilliant close ups of Creed too, and I can't wait to see them. He's getting way too big!

Candice caught a lot of fun moments

This kissing one is my favorite of course.

And yes, I know I'm lucky to have such a talented sister.

your sister is a brilliant photographer. I love each of these. I miss my first little house in Ohio too. Wish I had thought to take a family picture in front of it.

What great pictures! Candice always does such a great job! I need to steal her to do family photos for us next time she is in town.
Creed is such a cutie! :)

So lovely! I've always wanted to do photos on the Sundance lifts too - Michael and I took a self portrait of us together there once, and it's probably one of our favorite photos. :o)
