The Real Family, Not the Portrait.

I have to say that our daughter is wonderful about recording important as well as run-of-the-mill moments in her family’s path through life! Her guys are still at the stage where everyone can be present for the photographer… and this Christmas was the time for  what I refer to as “the next installment.”  The only one missing was Malcolm the cat.

Each child had a marvelous individual portrait taken, but the crazy group shots were what appeal to me. Our teenager certainly captured everyone’s focus this year in this family shot! He knows perfectly how to place himself in center stage!Jan15-2014RLippiatt_0250FamilyBut wait! This is the true capture of the REAL life. “I don’t care who started it!!!!”  We’ve all been there…

I must say I have preferences though. I think Gramma Jean looks terrific in this shot with her youngest child. (of six!)Jan15-2014RLippiatt_0243Pepper’s eyes are always intriguing!Jan15-2014RLippiatt_0245And of course Forrest is a dream child here. Jan15-2014RLippiattForrestStay tuned for more shenanigans!

Thanks to the fabulous Rebecca! (

    Terrific! I love candid photographs, what is often called “street photography” these days.
