Temecula Family Photography | Family Photographer | Tracy Family 2011

We were supposed to do 15 year anniversary pictures but we had to cancel – can’t remember why – then we had to cancel due to the awful heat wave…finally were able to shoot a couple weeks ago and decided to capture the whole family – we did a lot – had a blast, and laughed a TON! It is 1 a.m. right now – I should be sleeping…so please ignore all the comments I make. Enjoy!1

So this top picture is one of my all time favorite family photos…I am sure if I have taken your pictures, one of yours is in that top list too! But really - this is at the top of the top - everyone looks cute - Lara looks pretty - I love the expressions...I like the lighting and color...blah blah blah blah blah - see for yourself...Family Photography Temecula   041

I know – they are pretty much perfect…After I shot this night, I must confess I was jealous…I wish I had done this when my kids were little – I did have pictures done – but not like this where we played around a lot…I am actually due for a photoshoot and am doing one soon – I keep getting jealous (in a nice way) of the fun the families have together and the pictures they get! I like how they dressed too – super super cute!Family Photography Temecula   039

How awesome are they? You can see where all their children get their good looks…from their Mommy – just kidding Jonas…Family Photography Temecula   019

see??? they are all soooo cute! I love them…and now I miss them…Family Photography Temecula   014

yes his eyes are that blue and that cute…they will have to lock him up in junior high…I know because I am on my 4th junior higher...I know how they are...Family Photography Temecula   003

Poor Kaitie – she wasn’t herself – but still so cute – went home that night and had a fever and was sick for over a week! with croup! How is she still the cutest thing ever? oh and this reminds me, I owe her a treat!Family Photography Temecula   016

awesome older big sis – she is such a great girl – she helps me with Stephanie all the time during youth group…I love how she would just break out in spontaneous laughter – which is why I like this picture a lot – cuz it’s her sweet laughing face…Family Photography Temecula   006

she will need to be locked up in high school…or Jonas will have to get a gunFamily Photography Temecula   007

see how awesome her laugh is???? I might have to print this for myself because it makes me smile…Family Photography Temecula   010

sooo cute! I love his gap in his teeth – I just love this kid…Family Photography Temecula   002

Caleb was laughing because I had them kiss her- he was just beside himself – to kiss a girl – yuck! Family Photography Temecula   032

they are just yummy…. so so yummy…Family Photography Temecula   033

classic side shot from Jessy – love it..'Family Photography Temecula   050

they also ate pudding (it was supposed to be ice cream) – I probably shouldn’t let out our secret – did you think it was ice cream? we had sort of a picnic…. Caleb’s face is classic – did he not know this was about pictures? He is looking at me, “like seriously? are you really going to take a picture now??? Can’t you see I am eating?”

So not sure I should confess this next one….no one probably reads what I write anyway – seeing that I am really an accountant and all and NOT a writer…but there is cooking sherry in those wine glasses…and that makes me laugh as this is such a setup…and why are they laughing? I have not a clue – but whenever I think that there was cooking sherry in there, I crack up considering we are at Wilson Creek – which is known for it’s wine!

I love this picture – makes me smile as I type this…Don’t tell them I let it out about the cooking sherry…

so here they are being cute again in the picture below – totally unposed – I turned around and they were laying this cute and talking –staring into each other’s eyes while holding hands…I was so fortunate to get this picture…SmileJ&L Tracy   087 snap

Caleb found one of my biggest fears in life…that’s right a grasshopper. Whenever I read the OT and it talks of the 10 plagues – I think I would have died in the locust plague – literally. One time I walked home from the mailbox and there were 100s in the street – I had to run through them – they started hopping and flying – it was like a horror movie - I thought I was going to pass out…this is just one – but it’s enormous and it was out to get me…

Family Photography Temecula   035

I was so brave to take this next picture – I think they should pay me extra – actually Jessy had this angle – I was directly in front of him – right where the grasshopper wanted to hop – right at me – but he didn’t…Jessy’s angle makes it seem like it is super close to Caleb’s mouth – in reality it was closer to me and my camera – that’s how brave I am – you know Tracy – means brave – very fitting don’t ya think? Caleb is brave that is for sure! Tracy Family 2011   387 snap

they are so cute – two peas in a pod (seriously they are) – love them! Jonas is amazing dad…Family Photography Temecula   037

I just love this family- look at Katelyn’s face! Hilarious – what is she smirking at? Probably Caleb… Such pretty girls…

secrets – thinking that Emma is telling Kate that she took a drink of the cooking sherryFamily Photography Temecula   040

I love my 16-35 lens - it takes the coolest pictures..of the coolest people..

Okay- so this next one is probably my favorite memory of the night – Caleb was happily playing football with his dad – sort of heaven for him I think - he is really into football at this moment ….anyway I (the dumb annoying photographer who decided to ruin his fun) ask if the whole family can play – guess who got the ball and who wouldn’t give it back - yes the cute one who was really sick but livened up for football! Please LOOK AT Caleb in the background – this was not turning out how he wanted it! He said, “I knew that would happen…” meaning that if we give the ball to Kate – she won’t give it back – don’t ya just love little sisters????? Little sisters are sooo good for big brothers...Family Photography Temecula   045

Look at the joy on her face!!! It’s blurry but it’s classic! I love it – it was super dark at this time – I shot with the ISO all the way up… I don't think Caleb has moved..Family Photography Temecula   046

she still has it – Caleb decided to join in the fun…Family Photography Temecula   047

this was her hike – she was supposed to hike it right way – but instead she ran 10 feet or so and hiked it while running – it was soooo funny!Family Photography Temecula   049

yes – he finally got the ball – he ran as fast as he could!Family Photography Temecula   048

Can you print this for his room please?

Our afternoon with you at Wilson Creek was a blast. Your enthusiasm is contagious! Tracy is amazing and gifted by the Lord to bring out the best in people...that, paired with a great camera, is quite a combo! Listen people, it's quite an effort to do a family photo shoot, but soooo worth it. And the best part is spending time with the Dodsons:)
