A Photo to Remember

Here is the story. 

My sister-in-laws, sister found out about the 30 Strangers project and that it was time for submissions to be chosen for this years photos.  She has all boys so she emailed my mother, who has 5 girls, and suggested that she ought to try for it. She didn't know who Justin is, so the need to be a stranger part, Check.

"ok.  Why not?"  and she does.

Fast forward a month.  Justin Hackworth is calling letting her know she has been picked to be photographed.  Now comes the tricky part.  My mother has 4 sisters, 5 daughters, 11 grand-daughters and too many nieces to count.  This is a Mother-Daughter Photo Shoot, but we can't have 50 people in the pictures right?  One from every generation is what he wants.

So how to decide?

Grandma Dolly, or Blanche, is the oldest daughter in her family.

Allyn, or mom, is also the oldest daughter.  I see a theme developing here. 

So that is how I was chosen to be part of this once in a lifetime event.  This amazing project that I may or may not have heard about prior to the invitation from mom to have my photo taken. 

Ally was a trooper.  She was up late the night before and danced all morning.

A four generation picture of all the oldest daughters is appealing, and a great opportunity to create a wonderful memory.  I am so grateful I got to be a part of it.  The timing of it was perfect.  We were Day 30.

The exhibit will be in July in Provo UT.  I will fill you in on details as I get them.
