great photographer x (mosquitoes + extreme heat) = successful family photo day


Last weekend Jamie Hammond, photographer extraordinaire, took our family photos on a very hot evening with millions of swarming mosquitoes. (Note to self: The Pecan Groves may be a gorgeous place to live, but the bugs own that place. Think twice before dropping half a million dollars for a 1/2 acre lot.) Of course I exaggerate a bit. It was really quite fun and the bugs weren't noticeable until the end. Jamie was ever kind and gracious with our kids. Thanks Jamie for your amazing skills and patience!
Above photos did not pirate well. See Jamie's link for true image quality.

so cute, I love it! We're having ours done in November, hopefully there won't be extreme heat and mosquitos by then, but it looks like you got great pics anyway, so cute.

You guys look like you bore the heat well - noone would guess 1) you are in Arizona and 2) that it was probably 105 degrees.

You have a beautiful family!

family pictures are so fun (maybe not so much in the blazing heat with mosquito swarms,) but so fun to look at. My fave is the one of you and your husband -- so ethereal and romantic.
