Civil Bore

“This is a photo of myself from 1995. That year, we took a family trip to the Civil War reenactment in Gettysburg, PA. This man is General Grant. My father is behind the camera saying, “We’re having fun!” It was probably about 102 degrees out that day and no, I was not having fun.”

Penny Farthing

“Growing up in Australia, our neighbour owned a “Ye Olde” penny farthing bicycle, of which he was most proud. He made an appearance at our house on an almost daily basis asking for favours but one day he insisted that my dad take a ride on his prized possession. Needless to say, it was a terrifying experience for him!”

Shirts & Skins

“My Wedding: August of 2004. In what has become know as a “family” thing, men from his side shed clothes as the night goes on. This is me and my husband’s Uncle about half way through our reception at a local restaurant/bar.”

Put On A Happy Face

“This is my older sister and I in 1985. I was only a year old and she was three. This picture represents how she pretty much manhandled me through most of our childhood. But I thought she was the greatest and eventually gave in and just did whatever she told me to do. Luckily, we had another sister with whom we teamed up and tortured together.”

The Nosebleed

“This is a picture of my 6 year old daughter Isabella with a lovely tampon in her nose.  She remembers EVERYTHING and at some point in her life, I must’ve told her tampons were for nose bleeds.  She busted into my room one day with a bloody nose and remedy.”

Bag Lady

“Ever since my older sister was born, my dad was filming and taking photos of us. Then I was born and we went to Hersey park. It seems having a baby in a stroller helped equip dad with a way to carry his camera bag.”
