Why is it so hard to get an entire family photo? Really & truly, it's something that has bugged me since Claire has been born, that there are so few pictures of us as a threesome. It's time to order Christmas cards (already!?) so we had to remedy that, stat. A few weeks ago we headed to Tower Grove Park to snap some framers with our generous friends, Joanna & James. They are crazy talented, and we got all of these shots in less than 30 minutes, which was about the point Claire was OVER it. As you may well know, photos aren't always what they seem, and even though we took these in the middle of October we ended up picking the only day the temperature decided to jump back up to 80 degrees. Needless to say, we weren't in those coats for very long!
