FAMILY PORTRAITS WITH YOUR EX
Photos can play an important role in a family’s life, whether they’re framed on the wall, carefully tucked into albums, or shared proudly on smart phones and Facebook.
But once a couple gets a divorce, what happens to those special photo shoots with mom, dad and the kids? For Victoria Baldwin, her ex-husband Adam Dyson, and their 4-year-old son, Bruce, the photo shoots continued despite their divorce. A series of the photos were recently posted on the LoveWhatMatters Facebook page, and they have since created quite a buzz.
In explaining why she and her ex continue their family photo tradition even after their divorce, Baldwin wrote:
“Adam and I are not perfect co-parents, but we made a deal when we got divorced, to put our son first and to value the richness that we each bring to his life, for different reasons…So yes, we still have a family portrait taken, and I still pay good money to have the images printed, framed, and placed in our son’s bedroom; he may not grow up with parents who live in the same house… but he will grow up to see respect, kindness, empathy, compassion, perseverance, flexibility, and even sacrifice being modeled by both of his parents and he will know it is possible to fall out of love but never fall apart.”
Baldwin’s photos show that to some people, family is everything, even if you’re not officially a family anymore.
