Burns Family!

Some of my favorite people on this planet asked me to take some family pics for them this week for a mother's day gift. The Brothers Burns and their families have become like an extention of our own (or the other way around:) whether they wanted to or not. I'm so glad they decided to join O'Neal and I can't even remember what in the world we did without them! Kynlsey thinks everyone's last name is Burns and I'd have to agree that this world would be a lot better place if there were a few more! So here are some of my favorite shots of the day:

Al & Brooke

These two lovebirds made it feel like an engagement session

Say it with me now...awwww

They just happened to wear purple and this place has an awesome purple door

I love this shot! Except Al looks like he's shooting a bird. Don't worry Brooke-if you want this one I can fix that right up for you:)

Matt & Angela

You'd never guess these two kids have been together since like, 8th grade! They still have so much fun together and are so good to each other...sweet.

Their sweet girl (who just happens to be Kynsley's bff & my future daughter-in-law) Anna Beth

Destiny (or Dessie as Anna Beth calls her)

Jeremy, Tiffany & Destiny

The whole Burns gang

You'd never guess that Al was actually standing behind me getting the girls attention would you? We just left a spot open for him by Brooke and then I plugged him right in. What did we do before photoshop?

Surprisingly, this one required no photoshopping! Uncle Bobo (a/k/a Al to some of us) is quite a handy fellow to have around when picture taking. He had the bright idea to throw a pinecone over my head so the girls would be watching it and I could snap away. He was lightning fast to jump quickly into posing after he threw. Even after all his hard work I think there are only 2 pics with everyone's eyes open and both girls looking. Head swapping may be required after all.

Gorgeous day, beautiful light & great subjects. I'd say it was a success!
