a fall family photo shoot

Every year I ask my sister-in-law to take some updated pictures of our family and every year she oh so graciously agrees. And not just agree but really puts in serious effort for us and we appreciate and love her so! She recommended we head to the Farmingdale Trail for any of you local folks at the "magic hour," just as the sun is setting. And she is right about that light, it is magic. 

Do not let Ashley's miracle work fool you... for my children were uncooperative little (dare I say beasts?) things. The boys anyway. Dom wouldn't look or wouldn't join the rest of us... David kept turning around or putting his hands up or pouting... Matt and I tried all manner of bribery and threats and promises... there was lots of harsh words through smiles happening as well... but you would never know it would you?

It's so hard to choose and she literally gave me hundreds to pick from so here are just a few (ha!) of our favorites...
Thanks so much Ashley! I will cherish these forever and ever!
