Family Portrait

The Long Way Down

“So here’s our latest family photo. We wanted some shots ahead of our son’s 2nd bday, but no nap made for a crazy kid. We were swinging him on a 1-2-3 count to get him to smile, it was working great. Before the third swing got going, he picked up his feet on 1, the photographer snapping away all the while, documenting our parental failure as his hands slipped from ours. Holy crap. Thankfully he was okay, no major damage from the sidewalk face plant. And thankfully, Jenny got the shot. ”

Reminds us of another photo…

A Mighty Wind

It was crazy windy and this was the only day to take our yearly Christmas pictures that fit our busy schedule. My husband is trying to hold our 1 year old as he’s wiggling around kicking his legs and knocking our middle child in the head causing him to scream. I am trying to keep calm while I’m holding him with a half smile on my face. While our oldest son is waiting patiently for our family photographer¬† to say, ‘Cheese!’ Needless to say, this picture did make it on the Christmas card and everyone loved it!

Family Bliss

“Pure Family Time Bliss… our photographer told us to kiss trying to show how cute our family is together. This is what she captured. ”

American Revolution

“This is our ONLY professional family photo circa 1980. It was a fundraiser through my school. My mother made me wear my marching band outfit. It was humiliating and not only is the picture forever, it was witnessed by my entire grade school. (I love the pic now though!)”

Parents Kissing

“Just like any other family photo but we were required to have a “parents kissing” photo which we responded to accordingly.”

The Sea Of Galilee

“When I was 14 years old (in 1989), my family moved to Israel, from Canada, for a full year. As you can see from this family photo taken alongside the Sea of Galilee, this was an awkward age for me to live abroad with family.”

You Can Call Me Al

My Mom, Dad, sister, Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt. I’m the little girl with the amazing ringlet in the pink coat. The best part is, this was in the 80’s and you just know we set the timer on that ol’ Canon and Dad had to run like hell to get back to his designated spot. We got it developed and then noticed the gun to Grandpa Al’s head. It eventually was enlarged and framed in each household! Even better, my grandparents are Al and Betty. ‘You can call be Betty, and Betty when you call me you can caaalllllll meeee Aalllll!’ They have never heard the song.”
