23 photos over 44 years

In 1968, over the Thanksgiving holidays, Rosemary gathered her family and said let’s go get family pictures taken.

They went to NorthPark Mall and had Olan Mills take their pictures.

So that day, they decided to start a family tradition of taking “family pictures” every ‘other’ year.

On 12.22.12, I had the privileged of being their photographer for #23 out of 44 years.  2 years ago, I was added to their tradition.

I have been so touched by this family’s dedication to a tradition.  WOW.

We set up at Man Bites Dog Studios and let the fun begin.

Then we decided on the “awkward” smiles.

And finally ended up with Darren “dominating” because we had to put him on an apple box to make all the heights work out.

Thankfully his shorts were hidden behind everybody.

We spent the rest of the afternoon having a blast with this FUN group of people … as YOU might imagine.

  1. This is why I love photography so much. We are brought into peoples lives and are able to see just a little bit of how they live life. Capturing positive moments in time is so rewarding! Thank you for sharing this with us.
