Family Photo Shoot

I have to give my girl Julia props for the gorgeous pictures I just got in the mail. You may know Julia from her blog Pawleys Island Posh, which is always filled with beautiful eye candy from home decor to photography. But she also has started her own photography company called Julia Ryan Photography.

We did a quick photo shoot downtown a couple of weeks ago and she was amazing. Girl knows what she is doing! She was so good with Sterling and always knew the perfect spot for us stand or sit. If you need family pictures done or really any pictures you must call Julia (she lives in Richmond but lucky for y’all she travels too). Check out her blog to see some of the other amazing pictures she has snapped. I am lucky enough to count her as a friend in real life too so it was fun to hang out while we were doing the photo shoot.

Here are a few of my favorites. I am still undecided which picture will make the final cut for our Christmas cards- if you have a favorite let me know! I will show the final reveal before Christmas:)

**Don’t mind the box of raisins in most of the pictures, we had to bribe Sterling to cooperate- you know how kids are! So whatever works you do and it was raisins that got this little man to calm down:)**

Julia posted a few of these pictures on her blog last week and several people asked her about my blouse. So if you are curious it is the Marc Jacobs Michaela Silk Blouse. I bought mine at Neiman Marcus awhile back but they have it online at SHOPBOP Here

    Such cute pictures! My favorite is the one with Matt holding Sterling and y'all are in front of the crosswalk. I like how the background isn't quite focused – it gives a softer appearance. Love the blouse too!!

    Julia + Mason gorgeousness _ perfection. Love these pics so much. I think for the card I like either the 3 of you in the crosswalk or Sterling by himself in front of red door.

    Aw, these are all amazing! I love the one of S trying to open the door. Also love the one of y'all by the crosswalk. Don't know how you could decide on a favorite though!

    I like 9 if you're doing a family picture, 8 if you're doing one of just Sterling. I love the red door and how it screams "I'm a boy!" I just love it.
