Family Portrait 2018

Our 2018 family portrait maaay have been done in January 2019. I told you last year it was getting pushed further and further. We had a pretty good reason this time around. I was about ready to pop! After 8 months of misery, I was actually feeling really good towards the end. What better excuse does one need to catch up on much needed portraits! Our 2019 family portrait will look very different!

Family Portrait 2017

It’s a tradition in the Petry-Jewell home to do a family portrait once a year. I used to make a point of doing them in February, but it seems to keep getting pushed later and later — we did our family portrait this year (above) in the last week of December!

It can be hard to wrangle two people and two pets, especially when natural light is at a premium in the winter months. The above pictures are full of little changes I don’t think about until looking at them in the context of our previous yearly pics (below). Check out the new couch, and a completely different backdrop! Still wish I’d remembered to move that fan…
