So, my goal of one family picture a month has proven harder to implement than I imagined.
April was a failure. Josh was gone two whole weeks out of the month and I simply completely forgot.
May found me suddenly remembering. We tried a family picture on Mother’s Day. It didn’t go so well. The kids wanted their Sunday clothes off and to play with the chickens. The image below was the best shot we got of us. Yeah, really. The others were even worse.
I planned on scrapping these pictures and trying again on their birthday. But the party came and went and no family picture. So this will have to do for May.
And honestly, it makes me laugh. So that’s a good thing, right?
Honestly, it’s not that bad. And, candid is real life isn’t it? ;)And, I love the purple dress. Very flattering on you. Wish I could wear those types of dresses, though mine would likely need a hem.
it is hard to get one family picture a month! I do love that this captures exactly how they were feeling in the moment! I would agree the purple dress is so pretty on you!
the purple dress is definitely fabulous on you! and I have to give you credit for trying 12 family photos this year – Steve is never particularly thrilled about photo shoots, and I find it nearly impossible to get a good shot of *both* my boys, let alone Steve and me looking good, too 🙂 I have a feeling years from now, we will treasure these “real-life” shots just as much as the frame-worthy ones!
