“These two photos are from circa ’85. Though my parents had divorced several years earlier, my father came over to my mom’s house so we could take our Christmas Card pictures. One photo for Dad to send to his friends and family, and a different photo for Mom to send to hers. Dad thought it would be a great idea for me to stick my hand out of frame so as to imply that Mom, or in the other photo, Dad, was standing just outside the shot. I also really like how the background was meticulously chosen over, say, a shrub or maybe a grill. Here we are, um, in our backyard.”

“My Mom took my brother, sister and I to the mall to get a “nice” Santa photo taken. When she picked up the photo, she was outraged.”

“This is my ex-boyfriend’s family. c.1964. He and his twin brother and sisters and Dad are “enjoying” Santa’s visit. They lived in Red Lodge, Montana in the day, so perhaps a more realistic St. Nick was hard to come by.”
