California Dreamin’ {Newport Beach Family Pictures}

Ok…so this won’t be the typical “sneak peek.” This post is more of a “help me make a decision” kind of post. See, these are photos of my amazing sister and her family. They ventured down from Utah as they do every year to enjoy a week’s vacation in Newport Beach. And since Brittany is really a California girl at heart (born and raised) ..she wants to have some of that beach-y influence hanging large and proud in her home.  She’s thinking a 30×40 canvas going up the stairs.  So this year at the beach house, she got me to snag a few snapshots of the family – some while they were out playing in the water and sunshine and just a few grabbed as they were on their way out to celebrate Connor’s (the oldest son) thirteenth birthday.

This is where you, my faithful blog readers/Facebook fans come in.  I need help. Brittany picked out a few of her favs already – but what do you think would look the best hanging huge on her stairway? Should she go the more traditional route and do the posed family shots in coordinating bright clothes? Or be a little different and do one of the “semi-candid” shots from when they were all playing in the water earlier in the day? Which image would you choose? Feel free to leave your “vote” in the comments section at the bottom of this blog post!

Ok, here’s the first image:

The rest of these images aren’t whole family images under consideration…just a few extra pics of the family to hang elsewhere (in the hallway I think)… first the kids…
