This is my favorite picture representing four generations of the women in our family. Sure, we now have another baby girl to add to the mix. And an in-law as our family is growing. But this will always be a photo near & dear to my heart. The first four generations photo.
We set out that day to the Target photo session with such joy & expectation. The picture came out pretty near perfect if you ask me. But this is a “behind the scenes” sort of photo 🙂 so there is a story behind the smiles.
As soon as the door closed to the room where the photographer was set up, Sophia freaked out. FREAKED OUT! We had to leave our session & go for a walk around the store to calm her down. In hopes that she would do better, we returned. Once again, she began to panic & cry. Somehow the photographer managed to get this one picture in which we are all smiling. And that makes me smile each time I see this photo.
I am also reminded of these quotes about smiles:
- “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” (Dr. Seuss, my all time favorite author!). I do smile each time I see this photo.
- “The smile on my face, doesnt mean my life is perfect. It means I appreciate what I have and what God has blessed me with.” (unknown author). I have been blessed with my family for sure!
- “All’s well that ends well.” It ended well with this picture 🙂
