Family Pics and a Freebie

These are a little late to post (they were only taken back in November! ;) ) but I love this cute boy so I have to share and document these pics! My cute friend Chelsea took them for us...she is SOOO talented and awesome and makes them enjoyable (even for Zach who HATES pictures).

My original plan was to only have her take them of Dakota cuz I still love our pics from last year and Zach hates getting family pics so I didn't want to push my luck. The morning of pictures I started thinking...since Dakota can't really support his own self, it is inevitable that Zach or I will have to be in some of the pictures to capture his sweet little face. So last minute I threw myself together and told Zach to throw a black shirt on and off we went!

Despite the last minute throw together they turned out pretty cute...beacuse of Chelsea's TALENT!!! Thanks Chelsea!!

Favorite of his sweet smile and adorable face!!

We propped him up against this fence and he did good sitting up for most part...

Suprisingly smiled a lot for us...little model boy!! ;)

Love his mohawk on this one...looks pretty tough! ;)

Zach says it looks like I'm holding my "boyfriend" when I hold Dakota like this cuz he is so big! Cracks me up...what do you think?!

Loved this white background. And loved seeing Dakota stand up!! 

Zach is OBSESSED (that doesn't even do it justice) with Dakota's hands! He ALWAYS is holding his hand so I love this picture! ;)

Love Dakota's cute smile and eyes in this picture!!

My boys are the cutest!! Sorry I'm biased! ;)

This is how we kept Dakota going and happy! He loves his suckers!!


I'm DONE!! He is even cute when he cries! :)

  1. Oh, the last picture of Dakota could not be any cuter! So fun to see more pictures of your beautiful, little family!

    p.s. I am so glad to hear that I am not the only wife that has to deal with a husband who does NOT like having his picture taken ;)


    1. Thanks!! His cry is cute but sometimes doesn't sound so cute when it is too often...you know what I mean! ;) Oh man...I swear Zach is the worst. I dread even telling him about it!!! Especially telling him what to wear! ;)

  2. I am in love with these! So much happy (and gorgeousness)!

    1. Thanks Sarahn. Chelsea is SO good at capturing those precious moments so perfectly!!

  3. Oh I love all of these!! They are SO cute! His smile is the best, what a sweetheart! You look beautiful too! I just love your cute family! :)
