Red, White, And Groovy - Family Portrait

Red, White, And Groovy

“My Mom has always been a creative sewer. Back in the early 70’s she thought dressing the family alike in the cool, trendy flag cloth would be a great idea. Note the awesome brown polyester pants and cool white belts sported by the guys! And little me on my father’s knee! This picture has been out of the family’s eye for decades and I recently dug it out of somewhere.  I showed it to my Mom and her reaction was “Good lord, what was I thinking?” That got a huge chuckle from me!”

Tub Love - Christmas

Tub Love

“My parents like to make our Christmas cards ‘one to remember,’ so they came up with this idea. Two parents, seven kids, all in my parents bathtub! One of my brothers turned on the shower while we were all in there and no one could move to get out.”

Stiff Arm - Family Portrait

Stiff Arm

“This was taken  during our first family portrait. A friend thought it was staged, but I promise it’s not at all. After about 10 minutes of taking pictures it was getting pretty hard to wrangle my son. I actually love this photo the most because it really captures the family dynamic well.”

Land Of Cowpportunity

“On July 19th, 2000 we emigrated from the Netherlands to live with our family in Michigan to start a new life. In the Netherlands we milked 70 cows, but in Michigan we were living on a farm with 249 cows. More future for the boys that way. This was a nice calm cow.”

W Is For Birthday - Birthdays

W Is For Birthday

“My parents are staunch Republicans and were big fans of the Bush administration, but I think the real obsession stemmed from my Mom’s crush on George W. Bush and was then passed on to six year old me. So, whenever nineteen year old me gets accused by my parents of being too progressive, I remind them that when I was six I had a George W. Bush-themed birthday. Disturbing? Amusing? Maybe both.”
