5 Generations....beautiful. Our family tried something similar in the hospital with our firstborn. Just mommy, daddy, baby, but it was one of my favorite photos from that time. Love those teeny fingers in comparison to the big hands.
Great idea...it makes a portrait much more interesting. You could also have people hold pictures of the things they enjoy, or make a genealogy picture - have each person hold a picture of their parents.
"One family, 30 years - On June 17th every year, my family goes through a private ritual: we photograph ourselves to stop, for a fleeting moment, the arrow of time passing by.” - Diego Goldberg, Buenos Aires, Argentina
