Last year my big family started a tradition of doing a non-traditional family photo. You may remember this…
Yes most of that photo is real. The cigarette is not. Jer’s teeth are not. And that’s about it.
And you can read all about it here.
Basically this idea of a non-traditional family photo sprung from my loins (stop thinking about my loins) and now I am obsessed with them. Sadly, this year we got together for Christmas and I hadn’t begun to plan our big family shoot. It was Weston’s fault. When in doubt, blame the overly happy and intensely adorable infant! So instead of adding more last minute thing to the plate o’ stress that is served at Christmastime…I simply set up a white backdrop and asked everyone to make a silly face. One take each. One crazy shot. All cropped square and put together in a collage of our family. Just a simple way to memoralize 2012.
Weston apparently doesn’t follow instruction very well…we told him silly but I guess he heard “cute”….
And yes, it is hilarious to me that so many relations of mine heard the command of ‘silly face’ and immediately went with the cross eye or tongue out. We must be related.
