    Your photo is just gorgeous! Having restored many of my grandparents' family photos, these shots are to be treasured. (Making note of who is who in the photo and when and where it was taken is a blessing for future generations also - just as a side note )

    A friend of mine has an old family photo---no one is quite sure who's who in it or where and when it was taken, and the contextual clues are really limited; but thankfully some helpful person wrote on the back: "Taken three days ago." :-)

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    Thank you for sharing. My experience with family group pictures has always been that the dogs are the easiest of the group to have right in every negative.

    Outstanding! A true treasure. The kids in that photo will be able to look back on that day in their memories when they have their own families, and recall the fun they had getting there. All because of you!

    Yep, that definitely tops the dozen or so photos I have labelled with things like "My mum" with no idea who made the notation.

    Make many more of this type of photo. 50 or 100 years from now your descendants will be happy to see them, just like you probably look at old family photographs. On the other hand, the likelihood of being able to view a similar picture taken digitally in 50-100 years are slim and almost none.

    That is one of those photos that some or all the people in the photo will keep for as long as they all remain close. You did a great job there.

    I don't have a point. I just wanted to crow about a successful printing session and the fun factor of using the photographic medium as it used to be done.
    Well, thanks for sharing your story. Actually the point I take from this is that we should take more family pictures and don't take people around us for granted. Your kids will be around for a while longer so you have a good chance to build up a photographic memory. I blame myself for not taking the portraits of my parents while I had the time, the equipment and they were still around. It just breaks my heart, I was the "so-called" family photographer, and I took pictures for the last 25 years of everything under the sun except my parents. How stupid of me! Yes, I have the occasional snap-shot at X-Mas or a birthday party but have never asked them to sit for me for a family picture.
