I try to treat my twins equally, especially when it comes to their representation in the family books, scrapbooks, and blog. But here's my problem: I try to save just the best photos of each girl. Sarah is easy to get great shots of -- she smiles and poses perfectly every time she sees a camera:
Even when she's striking a silly pose, she knows instinctively how to look cute:
Allison, on the other hand, is harder to capture, leaving me with images such as these:
I'll ask her to smile and get something like this:
So while I try hard to have a good mix of pictures of both girls in our family scrapbook, I've noticed that for 2008, I have a whole lot more pictures of Sarah. And they're adorable photos, so I'm using them. But I feel a small twinge of guilt, knowing that someday Allison might look through and notice the difference. Of course, I'm using pictures of her as well, just not as many and not nearly so cute. So you see my problem. I love them both to pieces and think they are both adorable, but the family scrapbook, at least for this year, seems a bit biased. I realize the fate of the world does not rest on me capturing better photos of Allison, but I sure wish I could do it.
