Iconic Family Albums

I have a  secret spot in my heart for romantic family blogs. I let it out once in a while. Maybe because actually having and running a family is so freakin tiring and frustrating that making it seem beautiful, idealizing and appreciating the romance of little having little children in your life does make it better. It’s stopping to smell the roses while they are still blooming, because they are pricking you anyway… (Right now my son is dressed up in a Buzz Lightyear costume and dragging my flash around the house, plugging it in and then setting it off. It’s maddening. He also is OBSESSED with watching youtube videos of “Disney Collector” opening egg surprises on my desktop?!? Does anyone know why these exist and or have a child similarly enchanted with this crap?) Anyhoo… romantic family photography does it for me.  Childhoods should be photographed, they are so short and precious. I started this blog when Cookie was born and she just lost her first tooth! Courtney recently introduced me to Captain and The Gypsy Kid. A beautiful blog run by a stylist who produces the most gorgeous photo shoots of beautiful little families. It’s great. She also does this family album feature where she posts photos of iconic people and their children. I love it. I snagged a bunch for us to enjoy on this Sunday.

Is it weird that my favorite is Ozzy and Sharon? Serving up some 80’s realness, that is! Also Kate and Goldie. So good.

    I know this post is a few months old but I had to comment. I was scrolling through your blog looking for art inspiration and read this post. Just the other night my 3 year old son at the dinner table says “hey guys, Disney collector here with BIG egg surprised!” Hilarious. Those videos have so many page views!
    Thanks for posting such great content. Love your APT.
