    Love the family photo of your husband and children. I wish I had one like that but my youngest would never want her picture taken. Now she has 3 daughters of her own and the middle one closes her eyes and the youngest makes faces. Can’t win. I guess I should take them anyway I can get them, huh? Beautiful family.

  65. Suzanne Shattuck says:

    Your family is absolutely stunning! Your husband looks so debonaire yet the love for his family shows in his eyes! You need to start watching out for the boys knocking on the door soon though! That picture is one that truly captures love in a family!

  66. Carren Larsen says:

    You have a beautiful family. I love taking pictures of mine, and it’s so hard to get them all together now that they’re grown. The pictures from when they were younger mean so much to me.

  73. denise smith says:

    what a great picture sweet

  74. Joliene D. says:

    I LOVE this shot – other than everyone is looking quite sharp, I love that your husband has a soft “proud Dad” look into the lens, with the kids all doing their own thing. Definitely a ‘blow up or canvas it for the all’ shot! I love the photos that are more relaxed & natural –as in, the pics where everyone is doing their thing, not the posed formality type shots. Not that theres anything wrong with them, I just prefer the spontanious shots.

  75. Sandra davis says:

    what a beautiful family. Love when parents are in the pics.

  76. Dorothy Boucher says:

    what a beautiful picture and so nice of you to share your family with us, God Bless

  79. Fee (Phyllis) Roberts says:

    I love this photo. I love the way the kids are all looking somewhere other than the camera. It captures their youth and innocence so well. They are precious =D

  80. Kelvin Justine says:

    I would love to do that with my future children!

  81. Leah McWhorter says:

  82. Michelle Cuevas says:
