Family holiday portraits

Skamarakas and Zemitis 1920's family gathering 2nd and Fernon South Philly Philadelphia, PA

The Skamarakas Family

Speaking of family portraits – now is the time to get them lined up.  I always hate having them taken, but I love having them to look back on through the years.

Make sure you clearly mark them in some way so you’ll always know who’s in them!  I have no idea who is in the above photo, except that one of the children is Jim’s father.

This year gather up the kids, grandparents and Cousin Zeek and get a holiday family portrait taken. You will remember the love long after you forget the frustration

Its Jim’s idea whenever you see us all dressed alike.

I had obviously lost weight to allow not only my photo to be taken at all, but to be taken wearing white!!

  1. Wow, that top photo is really neat! I always thought it was odd when relatives would say I looked like some person whom I had never known, and who lived many years before I was born, and it’s uncanny when you see photos that show the proof. Maybe I’m just seeing what I want to see, but the woman in the top left corner looks so much like Jim and like Eilis to me. Also the boy with his eyes closed in the bottom right corner.
