Christmas Card

There is a saying that I once heard, "it's easy to take a picture, but the talent lies in capturing the moment..." My sweet sister Rachael took our family pictures (for our Christmas card) when we were up in San Fran for Thanksgiving. Let me tell ya, this girl has talent! Indeed there are perks to having a photographer in the fam-damily :-) **wink wink
She found the perfect little secluded road surrounded by the most beautiful trees...and thankfully it wasn't raining that day (oh, blessed sunshine!)
When I look at these pictures, I'm reminded of how fortunate I am to have these two in my life. I am so thankful for my little family. It's so true, that anyone can take a picture but it takes true talent to capture a moment...thanks Rachy for capturing these sweet moments!  
Sage even left her hat on--which is a miracle (I think it helped that my other sister Paige came along to distract her ha)

  15. Ok, you all look like you belong in a magazine like Town and Country. Beautiful photos & beautiful family! I love your flowing red skirt :)

    So funny that you were in my neck of the woods. I live in the Bay area in Corte Madera just 10 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

    I love it here and so appreciate all the natural beauty that is right in my backyard.
