My family has never been good about taking photos. Looking back, you’ll see plenty of pictures of vacations, some of holidays…but not much else. It’s kind of too bad, really.
I, on the other hand, tend to take things to the other extreme (I’m a blogger, after all. I have to document everything). So when my parents came to visit for Mother’s Day weekend, I was determined to get plenty of Official Mother’s Day Portraits (despite my own mom’s rolling eyes).
I got quite a few good candid shots of my mom and Tori…
But when it came time to get an Official Portrait of the three of us? Something always came up. Tori would need a diaper change, or a snack, or a nap, or just wouldn’t sit still. All. Day. Long.
Finally, it was 7 o’clock, and I was determined to get a picture of some kind. So I handed the camera to Brian and ordered my mom and Tori to line up. At first, Tori refused to cooperate.
But finally, some semblance of success was achieved.
There are a million things wrong with this picture (someone should have told me that shirt makes me look preggers), but you know what? We may look tired and disheveled, but we’re all happy. And that’s what I want Tori to remember. Which makes this photo a roaring success.
Proudly linking up with Project Alicia and Alli n’ Son.
