Welcome to another creative opportunity to showcase photos, via our weekly Saturday Snapshot event, hosted by Alyce, At Home With Books.
This week I want to showcase collages. Creations that show us relationships that are dear to us, like granddaughters, cousins, the generations, and a coming-of-age portrait.
First is one I created of my two granddaughters at different points in their lives. The photo on the left was taken a few months ago, and the snow baby poses show them at age seven at the Big Bear Cabin.
Next I’m focusing in on the two cousins.
Now for a spotlight on generations of women in my family.
And the final shot is of a collage hanging on the wall in my office, showing family moments.
Left to right: me and my brother, ages five and eight; me with my first born son; my mother holding me as a baby; and my brother, in the 1980s.
Middle row, left to right: There I am again as a slightly older baby; me, my grandmother, and my mom in the late 1950s; my parents with older brother as infant, with grandmother and aunt; and in the final group photo, my brother and me, our parents, grandmother, aunt and uncle and cousin.
Front Row: Me as a babe in the buggy; me at sixteen; and me at fourth birthday.
More family moments than what you were expecting, I’m sure.
Now I’m off to see what the rest of you are showing today.
