I LOVE family portraits. I collect them, in fact. It's so cool and interesting to see some of the same beauty traits and features in different family members, don't you think? I especially love seeing these traits in my own family...
Wasn't my grandmother Lillye a stunner?! She was around nineteen or twenty when this photograph was taken in the late 1940s. She's celebrating her 82nd birthday this October! And at first glance, I thought this picture was of my own mother. The resemblance in their expressions is uncanny.
Here's my mom at fifteen with her nieces (my cousins). I thought this was me at first and wondered when I ever owned a pair of striped pants like that. She and I have the same natural hair! This looks exactly like every photo ever taken of me as a teenager.
I'm an only child, but I sure do have a family of beautiful cousins! Here we are, all posing like Mitford sisters. I'm wearing the black dress in the middle, but couldn't I also pass for my cousin Beth (far right)? This is definitely one of my all-time favorite pictures. My cousins are the best (and the prettiest!).
What gorgeous traits do you share with your family? I want to see some pictures!
