I know that posed photos at the park are so popular right now. I love looking at the pictures people post on facebook of their newborn smushed up in a basket. Or their family frolicking at the park blowing bubbles. They are adorable. All of their outfits match and are coordinated. It's a beautiful sunshiny day. Great pictures.
I tried it once. I have done it twice - once with just the kids and once with all of us. They were okay. I am completely uncapable of coordinating outfits. We just all had regular clothes on. They were nice pictures.
|Here is my attempt at "pictures in the park". |
Their outfits are almost coordinated. There is a background.
We're at a park on traintracks. :)
But the pictures I really love of my family are real life pictures. The selfies we take while sitting on the couch. The ones were we ask a stranger to hold our camera. We are in real clothes doing real things. I love the candid shots of us. When I think back to my favorite memories, it's not posed at the park. It's real life. We're sweaty. We're dirty. We're tired. We're silly. We're family. I just looked through my old pictures and those are my memories. I will take these pictures of my family over the professional ones anyday. They are not for me. But I will oohing and ahhing and loving everyone elses.
|My current favorite picture of us. |
We're at the track. We don't match each other or ourselves.
We have hats and are dirty. We're smiling.
We're busy living!
