Made To Fit - Behind The Awkwardness

Made To Fit

“This 1984 picture was the result of a Christmas I really wanted to make memorable ! Just two days before Christmas, I set out to make clothes to fit the scene so that the four of us could pose in a family Christmas picture. Since my little girl, Christina, was in her terrible twos rarely setting still for pictures at all, and our six year old son Justin, wasn’t quite as easily persuaded to pose for pictures as he use to be, I just had to take action to preserve our happy faces sharing the moment at Christmastime. This was the first and the last time I could capture a silly, but warm and tender setting with all four of us posing in a holiday picture. Today, this is “our” all time favorite family Christmas picture… and boy would I love to re-create this now that our children have grown!”

The Safari - Behind The Awkwardness

The Safari

“This photo is circa 1959.  My mother had bolts of flannel fabric left when she dissolved a small toy business, so she made pjs for everyone!!!  Even my uncle had a pair, but he refused to be photographed.  This photo was included in our Christmas cards that year.”

Love Tap

“This is my older sister and my father. She got boxing gloves for Christmas and thought it would be a good idea to challenge our father. From the picture, you can see the he accidentally won that challenge. And don’t worry, nobody was hurt :)”

Spit It Out

“Seemingly unaware that me (the baby) was about to spit up, my sister (yes, she looks like a boy, pre-donny osmond I suppose) holds that completely straight face through the whole picture…even with the wet stickiness on her arm.  I guess my mom should have tried harder to burp me before they took pictures.”
