Making Faces - Family Portrait

Making Faces

“Yeah! The first photo, I’m the one making the ridiculous face. Those were for the church directory and the photographer kept saying: everyone smile now! And I kept making silly faces. My mom was so mad when she saw them! This one was the most normal of the bunch.”

The Great Sofa Shortage Of 1974 - Family Portrait

The Great Sofa Shortage Of 1974

“I’m the one in the horrible pink velvet dress. I grew up with a mother who was always dressed in the best while we wore fashions typical of these. Not only was it our best, but look how small this dress is on me (way too short and the cuffs are halfway up my arm). Thankfully I was thin so it wasn’t like it was too small (to her). My 2 older sisters were hidden in the back because their dresses were so short also. Of course, she is in the middle and looks like a million bucks.”

Meet The Mullets - Family Portrait

Meet The Mullets

“This is a picture of my Dad, Mom, and brother the year before I was born. It says ‘1994’ right on the photo, but it definitely wasn’t necessary cause it’s so obvious it was the 90’s. I mean, my Mom and brother’s hair say it all. He had that mullet for 4 years. And I just love the look on my brother’s face, he had evil plans.”

On A Pedestal - Family Portrait

On A Pedestal

“While I was away at college my family had to take a portrait for a church directory, so they took a framed photo of me. It was the photographer’s great idea to put me on a pedestal. Also, my Dad and brother had been fighting over something trivial, my Mom was annoyed, and my youngest brother habitually refused to smile for any picture.”

Jesse’s Protest - Family Portrait

Jesse’s Protest

“My Mom bought a family portrait for a school fundraiser.  My little brother, Jesse, refused to cooperate, so finally my Mom told him he could just turn around.  Sixteen-year-old me is in the tie-dye, wishing this was not my family.”
