Picture Day

Remember when I wanted to be a photographer but I didn't want to learn how to take my camera off auto and the idea of interacting with customers gave me a tummy ache?

Past Jenn was so ridiculous.

Anyway, thank God I got over that idea and decided to leave it to the professionals.  We had our pics done a few weeks ago at Eastcote House by Clare Metcalfe and I couldn't be more satisfied with the results.  So much better than my standard blurry phone shot ;)

 Look at this one- she got us ALL looking at the camera!!! All six!!!


I, of course, prefer the slightly less fancy sort of 'improv' shots.  Candid shots? Is that a word? Spoiler alert, that one where we're all apparently attacking Nick is the front runner in The Great Christmas Card Extravaganza of Two Thousand and Fifteen.



I think she did a FANTASTIC job with Scott.  Ya'll know Scott.  It's a total crapshoot- is he gonna love and adore you and be a perfect angel or is he going to cut your head off with a chain saw.  And he was perfect for her.


And here's what might be my favorite shot.  Ava and I butt heads a LOT.  Who knows why ;) But despite what she seems to think, I love her more than life itself and while I felt cheesey when she told us to sit on the bench, I really do adore her and I think this shot catches it.


And then shots like this that remind me- man.  I have four kids.  FOUR KIDS.  I can't believe it!!
So yeah.  Any locals looking for a photographer, Clare Metcalfe has my complete devotion.

  1. Sooo good. I love the shot of the girls telling secrets. And the boys...so handsome! Love the outfit color theme. Color scheme? Whatever you call it. Great shots.

    1. Thank you!! It took me a while to decide on that color theme, isn't that so stupid? So I'm glad you noticed ;)
