Dr & Mrs Morton Update the Family Portrait

Francis and I have always said yes to literally ever souvenir photo presented to us, probably to the surprise of many photographers. There is no question or debate. Yes, we will buy the photo. We buy Memory Maker with every Disney Vacation, and we used it to announce we were expecting a baby. We bought the photo with the sea lions. Wax Museum? I think you mean photo opportunity. So when it came time for family photos, we accepted the Bella Baby session from the hospital, and then we set out to add Lilly to our souvenir photo collection. Taking her up to the top of the Arch was #1, but for our first family portrait, only a tintype would do. Luckily, we have The Tintypery on Main Street in St Charles.

When we had a tintype made at Silver Dollar City years ago, Francis made up "Dr Morton", the original owner of our 130 year old house in Carondelet, and jokingly tried to pass off the "remarkable resemblance." The real original owner of our house was a German immigrant and real estate agent, but that is neither here nor there. The Dr Morton family announces a new addition! Schedule a photo with Santa Claus for your imaginary historic family today!
