Why Farmer Freitas' Wife?
Well, my husband loves to garden and my sister likes to call him Farmer Freitas....so you know what that makes me.
We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.
Life is great!

Our family home evening activity this Monday was a photo shoot.
It was time to update our family picture.
Also, Marley had picture day at pre-school?
We opted to not pay an arm and a leg for pictures...that may not turn out.
AND that is the reason we got a nice camera so I could take my kids' pictures.
We will probably order pictures once they start elementary school though.
And I do realize that is till a gamble with...
I am still in need of learning a lot about photography.
And photo editing.
I got this CUTE frame from my sisters when we moved to Michigan.
I LOVE it!
So, our family pictures have to be portrait...not landscape.
Same at the top of our blog. It's kind of a hassle to change that from portrait to landscape so we are trying to stick to portrait for that reason too.
(as you can see I am having a problem keeping it landscape and getting it to fit.)
I thought we got some good shots.
Here you have it.
Marley was a good test shot subject.
I wish I took more of her.
Nathan was a less co-operative test shot subject.
I think this is the best family one.
Marley is super cute in this one.
I am a perfectly natural super model.
Time for the FHE treat?!?
I think I prefer taking our family pictures outside in natural lighting and beautiful natural backgrounds
but, I was too sick during the beautiful fall colors to bother.
Do you take your own family pictures?
Do you have any tips for us?
Do you have any special criteria for your family pics?
(portrait or landscape because you want it in a special frame?)
