Sometimes (a lot of the time) I find that I take a bajillion pictures in a row of my kids doing something cute in an effort to get that perfect picture or effortless Instagram. And then I won’t delete the funny outtakes because I think they’re hilarious and I don’t want to lose that memory. I was deleting some pictures from my phone’s photo gallery today and found a couple series of photos that looked like they could be from one of those classic photobooths – you see a couple people sitting in that same pose over and over again with slight changes to their expressions and poses. So I used my favorite editor PicMonkey to make collages of some of those outtakes.
This first batch is of my girls in the backseat of my car on a road trip to a wedding. And I love them all – even the closed eyes and funny faces.
Next up, Reagan and Brinky hanging out on the couch together (this one’s before Brinky got his haircut obviously). How could I just delete the pretty smiles and crazy faces and squinty eyes? Clearly I couldn’t.
Going through these pictures reminded me of some of the times the girls took tons of pictures of themselves and their brother when he was a teeny baby using Photobooth on the Macbook. These are just some of the ones that made me laugh so hard.
We love to look back at old pictures from our younger days, and our kids’ younger days. And often we find we enjoy some of these funny photos as much as the posed pretty ones. So I’m glad I’m not too quick to delete the not-so-perfect pictures.
Do you save the outtakes, the regular funny moments of everyday life? Or only the perfect ones? Obviously you know my answer.
