picture day.

My talented friend Abby was in town this weekend, so I thought it was a good time to have some pictures taken for a Christmas card! You know when you’re in high school and you say “I’m always going to do ___________ when I’m an adult”, and now that you are, you probably do two of those things? Yeah, well sending out a Christmas card/having family photos taken was on my absurd list, and it’s probably the only thing i’ve stuck to.

Abby is the photographer and designer behind Conteur Co., and also the woman responsible for my engagement photos which i LOVED.

She’s probably the only person I don’t feel awkward around with a camera pointed directly at me.

Speaking of vulnerability, i could probably find something wrong with myself in every single one of these pictures. I’m working on not doing that anymore, and accepting my quirks and self-proclaimed flaws…. but it’s a process.

(I’m looking at you, crooked smile.)

So if anyone out there feels the same way when seeing themselves in pictures, I hope you’ll join me in trying to accept your quirks, too 🙂

Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from the 1 million she took this weekend at Shelby Bottoms Park.

this one sums us up pretty well i think 🙂
The full set can be found here, and I’d highly suggest Abby for your weddings, babies, engagements, christmas cards, and so on! Also, any insight to the best photo for a Christmas card…. suggestions welcome! 🙂
