Photohunt: Family

The photohunt theme this week is family. I decided to show you a photograph in my family flip album. Bill took this shot of me and our daughter in 1985, shortly after we got home from the hospital.
So many of the shots Bill took of our daughter as a newborn, with me, only show a part of my body. In one shot I won't use, all you see of me is my breast. In the shot above you only see my lap and torso as is shown above. I remember a time I was bothered by how I almost looked like furniture for the baby. Now I love these shots. You don't need to see my face to see a mother/child bonding. I have another shot from this album in the parallel lives photohunt on Snap2Days.

You can browse other early bird photohunters on technorati - and on Saturday at the home of the hunt here

Haha look at my little alien head.

I couldn't wait for this theme to come because I was excited to see fellow photo hunters' families or their spin on the theme.

Yours is oh so darling. Thanks for sharing this lovely shot of your daughter and some parts of you :D

Happy weekend.

Somehow that photo is heart-tugging. I have a similar shot with my son but that's not what I posted today. :-)

Bengbeng said...

how time flies. it is almost 24 yrs sice that time. so much of a learning curve too raising a child. i still got a long way to go n sometimes i feel it is a daunting task n overwhelming but at the same time we give thanks to God for the honor

Angela said...

With words like these, I just know that you have to be a wonderful mother! :)

Corey~living and loving said...

marcia@joyismygoal said...

aren't those memories just perfect.

diXymiss said...

Precious shot, Carver. I really like the way you set it up ~ so creative.

Liz said...

Just perfect.

Sandy said...

So sweet..wish we could keep them like that...

Theresa said...

Love the black and white, your analogy of being furniture made me laugh, although it makes for an interesting theme of an array of baby pictures. I bet your daughter cheerishes them all.

Munchkin Mommy said...

awww, aren't babies the most precious things?!

What a sweet shot. You can see the love and nurturing even without a face.

Amanda said...

When my husband and I first got together we went on a road trip and I was not too good with my camera back then so often his head was cut off or he was blurred. Today we still have those shots and we laugh at them.

Great family shot!

Have a happy weekend!
Amanda

A. said...

Lovely photo, and I can see how you must treasure it and the others.

Emzkie said...

that photo is so precious..

Rambling Woods said...

This is a beautiful idea Carver. I need to get some of my photos scanned in. I too am lacking in the early years as I always took the photos.....

June said...

You're absolutely right! Nice shot...

Patricia said...

Precious, Carver.

Sammawow said...

What a wonderful family picture of you and your new daughter!

Cindy said...

lol- guess I can't say it's nice to have a face to put with the name to you, can I? But, you are right- the photo does express bonding very well.

girasoli said...

Perfect photo for the theme! And such a wonderful photo filled with memories to treasure!

Dr.John said...

I loved the " baby" picture.

JC said...

She's so tiny... amazing isn't it :-)

Dragonstar said...

I know what you mean - we have a breast-shot too, not for public display!
This is such a lovely photo.

Sienna said...

This is a beautiful photo, I love the way u guys have done this, whether deliberately or not. And an absolutely beautiful baby!
Yes, on the bonding, great, original picture.

that is the most adorable photo ever! ;-))

Baker Watson said...

Nice shot - I like the flip album - in many ways it is better than a scrapbook or group of photo's in frames - In a flip album each photo has its own chance to shine and it is fun to anticipate what little surprise the next will hold
