Lesson Learned

September 9th, 2016

Lesson Learned - Babies

“This picture is of my little sister Noelle and me. This was from sometime in 1996. The fact that I was nine years old is my only excuse for my extraordinary bad outfit.

I loved playing with my baby sister. I am 9 years older than her, so I was able to be more interactive with her as a baby than I had been with my other younger siblings. So I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane.’ The following conversation occurred between my mom and I, moments before this photo was taken:

Mom: Rachel, she just ate, you probably shouldn’t do that.
Rachel: No, she burped she will be fine.
Mom: It really isn’t a good idea.
Rachel: But she is having so much fun.
*Noelle proceeds to spit up all over Rachel’s face*
Rachel: AHHHHHHH! MOM I NEED A TOWEL!
*Mom runs and grabs a camera*
*click*
Mom: Told ya.

One of the best examples ever of ‘Mommy Knows Best.’”

Shorts Story

Shorts Story - Couples

“This is my oldest brother and his wife, pre-kids. Allegedly, the traveling photographer assured him he would frame from the waist up, but obviously didn’t. But that only explains the shorts, leaving us to wonder about so many other decisions they made prior to sitting for this session.”
