Back in the spring of 2008, I asked my sister (who was over at our house at the time) to take a picture of my family in front of our house. Even though my sister is an incredible photographer, the point was not to get the “perfect” family photo, but just to capture all 7 of us together, dressed nicely, at the same time.
I will be forever grateful that she snapped pictures through the entire photo shoot – the potentially good pictures right alongside the really silly pictures – because what she captured before and after the ONE FAMILY PHOTO that turned out is priceless, especially 6+ years down the road.
Tonight while the rest of the kids and I were out at activities, my husband and youngest son put this video together. It brought back so many memories. And I decided that it would make a much better Photostory Friday post than what I had planned.
What’s behind the one good family photo? Lots of kisses and lots of laughter, some pinching and tongue-sticking-out. Lots of “bad” pictures that show the true nature of our young family (and boy do we look young!).
Here’s the original post from March 2008. It’s hard to believe how much my family has grown since I started my blog!
