What A Real Family Looks Like

I spent a good part of last week in Maine with my family. If you’ve never been to Maine, go ahead and add it to your bucket list because it is a truly beautiful place. This time of year is famous for brightly colored leaves and the “leaf peepers” swarm the state, hoping to catch it at its most colorful. I got a lot of photos in, take a peek:

I attempted to take a family photo using a tripod and remote but honestly, this is the best we could do. I have no idea what someone said but just know that it was probably inappropriate and it made us all laugh.

How do most families take photos? I’ve got 50+ of all of us and in every single one someone is talking, laughing, or my brother is being a hooligan. Not one of the photos has all of us looking in the same direction at the same time, smiling. Not. One. But then again, isn’t this what a real family looks like? It’s messy, goofy, loud, not always PC, and someone is always laughing. I think I’d rather capture that than pretend to be cookie cutter, wouldn’t you?
