Family Photos!

September 12, 2016


Hi, friends!

I wanted to pop in and share with you some of our family photos that we just got back YESTERDAY! {I’m pretty excited about them}. We haven’t had family photos taken since Blake was 18 months old, so we were long overdue.

So, after we got *mostly* settled into our new Boise home, I started looking for photographers on Instagram. After searching Jessica’s Instagram account, I knew I found the photographer I wanted! I loved her style and how she captures the beautiful sunsets within several of her photographs. That’s what I asked for specifically and that’s exactly what she gave us.

Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we do!! I am sort of head over heels in love with them all.

All photos were taken by Jessica Demers Photography.










Lauren and Gordon

    Excellent photos of a beautiful family. Enjoy it while they are little, Lauren. When they get to be my boys ages … they run from the camera.

    Love the photos. Love the beautiful smiles and also how casual the setting is. You will look back at these photos in several years and be so glad you took them.

    I love that picture of Brooke with her hand on hippos looking back at the camera. Looks like he dress has pockets. Fun.

    Hi Lauren! What a gorgeous family! You are right, the photographer is quite talented. Your family has grown and lived in several places since I started following you. Have really enjoyed following you all!

    Beautiful!!! I really enjoyed the “candid” aspect of the photos, not trying to have young children standing still and giving frozen cheesy smiles.

    Love watching your family grow and change! As a former PNW gal, I love reading your posts and watching your videos from life in Boise (I was born in Boise and moved to Oregon, west of Portland, when I was five…Lived there until our move to Florida in 2008– so 33 years…So yeah, Oregon is “home.”)

    These are my favorite photo’s! I’ve been a fan of yours for so long, and not only do i love your recipes, but also how you share your family, vacations and love! Just beautiful Lauren! It always makes me smile and warms my heart because family values and quality time spent with family making memories is something that i see less and less of these days.. Thank you for sharing!
