reverb 10: december 25 - photo: a present to myself
Photo - a present to yourself: Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.
I suppose that I am going to cheat a bit because this photo is of my whole family, but I love it. It was taken as part of a family photo shoot including my sister-in-law and her doggie, and my brother-in-law and his wife and their son, for my mother-in-law (the great unveiling will be today when she receives a photo collage of the best shots!). It's a beautiful fall setting, we had a photographer who had done "belly pics" of me and some family shots when I was pregnant with Irene...so all of that is not particularly remarkable, but the best part is the way that we're all interacting together. I feel like this picture really captures who we are as a family at our best. Yes, I know that I need to be self-differentiated and all that, but having a unified family is one of the biggest gifts of my life right now, and I want to celebrate it!
