Epic family photo fails

Ever since we’ve struggled to capture the perfect family photo, I’ve embraced the beauty that comes from raw emotions. I have often joked that I’m going to start a photo album with all of our photo fails. Then I asked myself, “Who even makes photo albums anymore?” Ha! But a blog? Now that’s trendy…

It all started with this little girl who wouldn’t stop crying. Nothing was wrong, she was safe but she was sad. So I captured it. Now we look at this photo fondly. Her crazy blond curls and her poor sad face.

Then we move on to the only family photo we captured at our youngest’s baptism. Lesson learned–take a picture at the beginning of the event before exhaustion sets in.

These sad Brewer game photos are icing on the cake. It was most likely due to the fact that naps were skipped, junk food was plentiful, and the kids were out of their element. I like to think that the kids were just upset because their daddy dressed them in Cubs gear.

The few times we try to get a picture with my husband’s family have proved futile as well. Two out of three kids crying are not good odds.

In the end, we have great stories to tell and these pictures somehow make us smile and laugh a little more than the perfectly cheesy grins we always hope for. There’s the silver-lining for you. I would love to see your photo fails!
