Feathers, Fun & A Photo Shoot

You may or may not already know this about me but I LOVE, borderline obsess over, thinking and styling photo sessions. Not your typical sit at your local Target and smile. {not that that's a bad thing} I find it energizing and exciting. I find myself sweating and giddy about what new things I can think of. This also may explain why I have had more photo sessions in the last six months than I have in my entire life! 

Lately, I have been on a mission to get a bunch of different 'professionally' taken pictures to put around my house. Memories that I would have for years to come. For as long as I can remember I would swoon over pictures I would see of families in their own bedroom. There is just something about it that felt warm and family-ish. So, this past weekend the lovely Nikki James from Nikki James Photography came to our castle and took these fabulous photos.

Here is a Sneak Peak of some of the photo session held at our castle...

One of my favorites!

LOVE the expression on my boys faces. This is 100% who they are!

We would pause every now and then to dance to the music that was playing on the I-pod. Lot's of laughter and bribery had taken place but didn't they turn out SO sweet! It was just what I was hoping for. Tomorrow I will be doing the 'big reveal' of the winner of this post! So excited the winning picture is pretty darn cute! 

What are your favorites? {You haven't seen all my favorites. I couldn't show them all in just one post, now could I?}
