Family Portrait






I've never been a big one for the typical family portrait. The Sears Special with matching sweaters, your Sunday best. Or the cool artsy studio sessions - everyone in white, against a black background, looking manicured and perfectly cute in every way. I am a little too artsy for the first option and a little too thrifty for the second, but still, a family need's an offcial portrait or 2 over the course of a lifetime to say "We are us and this how we do it."
So, in order to find a way to capture us and our us-ness, I enliseted the help of Jemimah.
Today was one of those many, many days when I abuse a family member and take advantage of their talents. My sweet sister trudged with the boys and I out to an overgrown field with some abandoned train cars and she took our beautiful and honest family portraits for us. These are just a few of my many favorites...
