Make Me Smile #TBTStories

We're having family photos taken this weekend, so I thought I would pull some old ones out of the archives for inspiration. I did a quick google search of 'awkward family photos', and I didn't find us there, but it may be only a matter of time….

This one was taken when Jim's family all gathered for an overnight in Cincinnati back in 1991. All 15 cousins were together for the first time ever, and we enjoyed playing in the Holidome and watching old home movies. The next morning, we went to a nearby park to take some photos. What you can't tell from the picture is that it was COLD! Poor little one-year-old Adam, still sporting his bald head, was undoubtedly freezing! Thankfully, the photographer worked quickly, and we got pictures of the whole group, Jim's parents with the kids, and grandkids, as well as some individual family shots.

The second one was taken at my parents' house. Oh, the denim. :) I think it was the year 2000 or thereabouts, and it was similar in format to the photo above. We took large group shots of my parents, children, and grandchildren, then took a few of the individual families.
This weekend, we will be repeating the pattern with our kids and grandkids. I'm just wondering if we should try to recreate of of these poses for old times' sake. I'll bring the denim! :)

It is so fun to look back at clothing and hairstyles, and even the poses. The times do change!! Can't wait to see your photos!
