I Am Not A Family Photographer

My Nana asked for some family pictures of us. And this is what happens when the words ALL, FAMILY and PHOTOGRAPH are spoken in our home.

And it's time to give up.

This post also serves as a warning to Pink Photography and our upcoming family portrait session on Sunday.

I’m sorry that I have nothing to ask you this weekend. I guess that I have life all figured out. Okay, everyone stop laughing. We’re beginning to get spittle on the computer.

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. Taking family pictures is the hardest thing in the world! Ok, maybe not the hardest thing. It won’t make a gov. shut down or anything, but SO HARD nonetheless. Can’t wait to see your family pictures! Say MONKEY!

  2. I’m pretty sure that family pictures don’t really exist….at least that is what I tell myself every time I try, once again, to get a somewhat decent picture of all three of us, and once again, fail.

  3. look at the bright side – you’re way ahead of the curve on getting that family photo together for Christmas cards : )

  4. R’s belly button is a frequent family member for us these days. It’s his new favorite thing, and he shows it to EVERYONE, whether they want to see it or not. In fact, he thinks it’s how you introduce yourself. Waive hi, then pull up your shirt to show off your belly button.

  5. When I take pictures of our family, they turn out quite nice. I’m just never IN them. I am also absent from pictures of my honeymoon, my sister’s wedding and most Christmases. That’s what taking photography in college will get you!
