Family Photo Archives

Posted in Life, Pictures by Sarah on June 4, 2011

This morning, as a June rainstorm poured down outside, Meredith and I started a project that took us down memory lane.

We sorted through 200 pounds of family photos that Dad has taken over the past 30 years.

Oh yes we did.

Forney Family Photo

We came across some good memories, along with some awkward and embarrassing ones, and some photos that captured our attention so entirely that our hearts paused to linger.


Baby Forneys

The treasure trove of photos contain pictures of several generations of Forneys, from old black and whites….

Nana With A New Buick

to siblings we call aunts and uncles….

Lynda And Mary

Dad, Steve & Peter

to siblings we grew up with….

Michael & Elizabeth

and much much more.

The pictures also document the fashion trends we subjected ourselves too (wayfarers, side ponytails, shoulder pads — you name it, we probably wore it).

Looking Hot For Easter, 1980s Style

We also salvaged a huge archive of negatives and we plan to have the prints and negatives digitized, so that all the Forneys can have access to these beautiful photos and memories.

For now, enjoy these select few!
