    I normally am not a huge fan of doing family photos. However, my friend was hosting a special this fall so I signed us up. Josh wasn't thrilled but he did it because he likes me. :D

    I just got our sneak peak today and I'm SO excited for the rest. Sorry for the huge FB photo.

    That is a really cute pic.

    If by family photo you mean all the dogs together, then yes all the time.

    Otherwise...no not so much :p

    I reaaaaaally want pics of DH and I with all four dogs but DH haaates having his picture taken, so we haven't. I may see if I can trick him into it sometime under the guise of helping me handle all four dogs on a candid type shoot, but I doubt we'll ever get a true posed shot together. The last posed, professional shots I have of him with just ME are from our wedding 5.5 years ago. :p

    That's a really nice photo meepitsmeagan!
    And good job yv0nne on taking your own photos, pretty scenery!

    We did family (mom, dad and sister) photos twice: once when I was about 8 and then again when I was 15 or something. The ones from when I was 8 were good, but the other photos were pretty cheesy. Oh, and we have family photos from my sister's wedding that are nice.

    Now that I'm with my SO and Smiley, we haven't taken any professional family photos, but we do have one from thanksgiving this year. Not sure if we will ever have professional photos taken, but we'll see!

    Gorgeous picture!

    For Christmas 3 years ago (oh my gosh, it's really been that long?), I asked Zach to do family photos with me. I LOVE how they turned out.

    I want to do it again! I'm not sure I'll be able to get DH on board though until kiddo is here.

    We've never done them, which is sad since my boys are 7, 5, & 3 now. :(

    No.. I think my other half would rather stick a rusty spoon in his eye!!! We do have pics of us together up, but fun ones, nothing formal.

    Nothing really formal, except for maybe 10 years ago, when we did a professional photo session with all the women in the family - Mom, all of her daughters, daughter-in-law and the only granddaughter at the time. It was a birthday present for Mom.
    Since then, I have, on occasion, forced the family at holiday gatherings, to pose for a group photo. Unfortunately, the photos don't include the animals since one nephew is allergic to dogs, and brother-in-law is allergic to cats.
    Mom and Dad are in their mid 80s so I'll probably push for another group photo this year.
