Surviving family pictures… just keeping it real


You've heard of "truth in advertising"?  Well this picture represents "truth in family pictures."

If you've ever assembled your family for a picture, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Of course, this family picture is from early 2011 and is now obsolete—thanks to baby Ivy. (It's a funny story.) But I really like it because it's a pretty good representation of how most of us feel about the whole deal.

My prayer on family picture day goes something like this: "Dear God, one thing I ask of thee today: Please help us all to survive family pictures with our relationship with you and each other in tact." Frankly, sometimes it doesn't happen.

But I must confess, I sure am glad to have captured our family at its various stages over the years.  

Of course, I look exactly the same in all those pictures.
