Touch of Teal - Family Portrait

“My Mum made most of the clothes so we’d all be very matchy-matchy. She also looks like Tootsie. And clearly I thought we were posing for a Target catalogue. At least my Dad’s perm had worn off pre-shoot.”

    Because teal is the new magenta.

    I don’t see anything awkward other than its just an old picture.

      I agree, just bright late 80’s/early 90’s clothes but a nice family pic as far as those studio portraits go.

      I had the same thought… just a nice looking family. OK, the glasses & shoulder pads are vintage, but they just look like the neighbors next door we all liked. Do wish I could see what they look like now….the kids are probably now older than the parents were in the original picture.

        its just the clothing being so crazy matched but those were the days and obviously her fave color (it’s always the mom) i have a feeling the home was quite colorful too
