Stanford Family

The LONG awaited photos of the Stanford family, plus  2.  I couldn’t say no to my boys when they wanted to “be part of the boys”.

I’m so so proud of my friend, Jennifer, to let me photograph her family while she was 9 months pregnant!  No complaints!  Just smiles and happy to be photographed at this special time in their family.

Our schedule just didn’t allow for anything else.  And when we thought she’d be photographed holding a newborn, we went with what we had.  Baby girl just wasn’t ready to arrive.


So here’s my little soap box on why you should be photographed, regardless on how you feel about how you look.

Your children will want pictures with their mom.  Your daughter-in-laws will want to see pictures of you as a young mother.  I know I did.

Your husband wants pictures with his beautiful wife.

Your mom and dad want pictures of the amazing woman they raised.
So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed? . . . Ok.  But you’re the only one who notices.  The rest of us are too caught up in loving you.

Jennifer I love you and miss you!!
Can’t wait to see you next summer.

    Lauriann these are amazing. I love you too. The last one made me cry. O the times we have had. Theses were worth every minute of the wait. You talent amazes me alittle more each time you photograph us all. I have to say you choose pictures that i feel I can hang on the wall and not feel huge. Honestly I look better in these then I do today. Thank you for coming and sharing this special time with me and being here to capture it on film. My favorit one is the first one. Your boys will always be part of the boys. We love them so much. Brealyn and I miss our “Mauriann”. June can’t come fast enough my friend!
