A Family Tradition - Behind The Awkwardness

A Family Tradition

“Every year my mom thinks of a theme and has my siblings dress up to go see Santa. This year was mischievous elves. My parents started doing foster care when I was in 3rd grade, that’s why there’s more kids in a couple pics. I think I was in 5th grade when my mom started the themes with Santa. She would have us go to the Santa in the Mall, which was extremely embarrassing some years, but now looking back its definitely one of my favorite memories. Once you turn 18 or move out, you don’t have to do it. The most recent on is of my brothers.”

Nutcracker Love

“Growing up, I did ballet and I performed in The Nutcracker more times than I can remember. This was the year I was a candy cane and also the year before I discovered tweezers, apparently. The photographer insisted that I caress the nutcracker doll, resulting in this creepy, borderline objectophilic gem.”

The F Word - Christmas

The F Word

“Set the camera on self timer to take a family picture. I told every to just be themselves. Baby boy stuck his fingers in his nose, older sister did her thing, and then the five year old held up her middle finger. Had no clue she did that until I was editing them. Asked her what it meant and she said ‘the f word.’ I asked her what the f word was. She whispered fat. I’m pretty sure I heard the hallelujah chorus that that was her ‘f word.'”
