Family Pictures by Design Mom

Gabby posted the best blog post ever on getting her family ready for family pictures. It is really worth reading. Gabby does everything so well that sometimes she makes it look like she isn't even trying. I have to admit that I was relieved to hear everything she did because in my mind~~~

Gabby woke up the day of the shoot, rolled out of bed, woke her children with a song and told them to get dressed in "something cheery". As she and Ben dressed in perfectly complementary and cheery outfits themselves, the children each went to their closets and picked things that would best fit their mother's definition. Throughout the morning the family encountered only two problems, the first, that there was only one giant red flower and three little girls who wanted to use it and the second, they had to wait because Oscar had to change his tie several times until he got it just right.

This post reminded me that a lot of work and thought goes into everything Gabrielle does. I love hearing about her thoughts and how she used every resource out there. I am so proud of her.
