Family Photos 2015 {$400 Minted Giveaway}


Oh, family photos. I have a love/hate relationship with them. There is so much drama leading up to the photos…picking out outfits that match, but aren’t too matchy-matchy, haircuts, picking a location, and getting the boys to cooperate on picture day…and that includes Josh:)

Family photos may be a lot of work, but they are so worth it! I am always glad we do them when we get them back…mostly because our photographer, Crooked Pinkie, is amazing! She took our family photos last year too!

We are sharing some of our favorite photos today! There are so many cute ones of the boys:) And we also have a $400 Giveaway from Minted! I am using Minted to create our Christmas cards with all of our family photos and I am having too much fun. Minted’s site is easy to use and there are so many fabulous card options!

So check out our family photos and enter the Minted Giveaway! We will pick two winners, each winner will receive $200 to spend at Minted! Yay!







A little story about this one, we were walking in the meadow and this big white horse came galloping over the hill and both boys got so excited. The owner of the horse asked if the boys wanted to sit on the horse and of course Caleb jumped at the chance! The funny thing, the horse totally matched his outfit. It looked like we planned this photo. No, we didn’t rent a horse for family photos, it was just Caleb’s lucky day:)











Disclosure-this giveaway is being provided by Minted, but our opinions are our own.Β

  1. Maria your family photos are gorgeous and priceless. You will be so happy years from now that you were able to capture those moments in time. I just love traditions like this. My girls are grown now but we still try to get a family picture every year. I use to drive them crazy trying to get everything perfect for the pictures, try to relax so the boys will enjoy family picture day! (I couldn’t see your feet, did you have your tieks on? My guess it was your boots.) haha!

  2. Pictures just have stunning visual appeal! So lovely.

    I hate family photo’s, my husband and girls always look great and I look like an oompa loopa (Willy Wonka) every single time!

  3. I loved all the pictures your boys are so beautiful i especially liked the one pic on the horse and the 2 boys sitting in the grass

  4. With two new son-in-laws joining our family this past year, I would love to have a family holiday card. Thank you for our first this wonderful opportunity.

  5. love the pictures….beautiful family
    i always look forward to our family christmas cards
    i keep the ones i received over the years in an album on the coffee table for friends and family to reminisce and enjoy when they visit!!

  6. These photos are priceless; I do not know how you will choose your “favorite” from among them. I guess there will be lots of favorites!

    Keep the wonderful recipes coming! I appreciate your sharing your talent with us.

  7. Maria what a beautiful family and these photos are absolutely stunning! These will be iconic family treasures to look back on. You’ve inspired me to try this with my crazies. It’s always been hit or miss., mostly miss. But, they do grow up too fast so I better get on the ball!
