Let me introduce you

Blogland this is my family. Family meet blogland.


This is my hubby Tarl. He's pretty much awesome. And me. You know a little about me right? Then there is my kids. My daughter K is 6 and just finished kindergarten. My daughter M is 3.5 and we're playing preschool this summer. My son T is almost 2. He's my little dude.


They have a lot of fun together. I love being their mom.


I found this amazing photographer over a year ago and started stalking enjoying her blog. I wanted so badly to have her take my family's pictures. Problem is hubby hates having to stand around smile.

Once I convinced him how awesome it'd be (totally bribed him by taking him out to dinner) and how he'd have a HAPPY wife he finally agreed.

Jessica Kettle met us in down town Salt Lake to get these awesome urban shots. I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites and finally decided to do a huge collage on my wall of my favorite 7 shots.

Debbie, I LOVE these. I really want to do this with my husband finally.

We have no great pictures of us. Our wedding pictures aren't good, our engagement pictures aren't great, etc.

Rochelle said...

I freaking LOVE these pictures! They are awesome and I am a little jealous that mine aren't nearly as cool!

Rachel Sue said...

I love these pictures. In fact, I have already emailed Jessica to get her pricing. I want some!

Those pictures are great...I love the one on top, because that is my favorite color!

I *love* them, Debbie! They look so great. Maybe it's the whole husband-artist thing (which I know we share :), but I have a personal vendetta against bad family portraits. It's so worth the money to get them done right!!

Emily (Good Frau) said...

These are beautiful! Apparently she is a friend of my family. I have never met her, but she grew up with my cousins in Washington. Does that sound correct? Anyway, she has done my cousins' wedding photos and I have always been amazed with her talent. And then I see these! Your pictures are REALLY beautiful!

Melinda said...

I just adore them, they are so good! I REALLY REALLY REAAAAALLLLYY want to do this, gotta start saving my pennies! :)

Olivia Carter said...

Great pics! I'm jealous- Scotts like your husband (hates standing around smiling) but on top of that he hates standing around in public where people can see us taking pictures.

Me said...

Those are GREAT pictures! She is a great photographer. It helps when the subjects are pleasant to look at as well. Your kids are adorable.

Greg and Kimberly ... said...

Those are some of the best family pictures I've ever seen, Debbie. Love them. Greg and Tarl really are cut from the same cloth, he hates pictures, too.

Have I told you lately that I'm glad you're my friend?

Debbie said...

You guys rock, thanks for the sweet comments.

Vic thats one thing I totally invest in. Like for my wedding I spent a good amount on pictures and 0 on the cake, it was just a matter of my priorities. :)

Rach I totally saved up for those. It was my bday/christmas. :) Totally worth it for me.

Von my sisters fav color is orange too. So now everytime any of us see orange we buy it for her whether it is something she needs or not. Haha.

Emily yup she grew up in WA. She goes there to do shots all the time. Small world.

Olivia I think thats the kicker. Having to be in public and let people see you. I had to promise hubby we wouldn't do more for a few years. Hopefully he doesnt make me wait like 5.

Kimberly you're a sweetheart!

I love the pictures of your family! I especially love the black and white individuals of the kids on Jessica's blog. Their eyes just pop and I love it! You have such cute kids and the pictures to capture their personalities and cuteness so well! And, the pictures of you and Tarl turned out great too!

Jill Hunt said...

Love, Love, LOOOVVVEEE these pictures! Makes me want to get ours done so bad! You guys are like the cutest family ever!

SO said...

That first picture with the orange wall ROCKS!!! I love, love, love them. I would have a hard time choosing as well. You have an adorable family.

Colette and The Chickenwings said...

Melanie said...

I love the pictures. They look awesome! You guys are so cute! Although, I still can't believe you have three kids...I'll get over it someday. :)

Susan said...
