Father’s Day Disaster

Father’s Day Disaster - Family Portrait

“My great idea of giving a dad a surprise portrait of his wife and children didn’t go so well. Oldest son seems depressed and in an urgent need of a restroom.  Youngest son is trying to kill the photographer with his glare or is just ticked off about the awful clothes color combination. Middle son trying to give some one in the room the eye. Mother obvious and thinks picture will be great.”

Scary Christmas

Scary Christmas - Kids

“I’ve had this photo in a keepsake box for years. Two years ago I posted it on Facebook for Mother’s Day with a nice caption about my Mom. I didn’t notice the ‘serial killer’ in the background until Facebook prompted me to tag him…”

The Space Lady And Son

The Space Lady And Son - Kids

“This is me and my Mom performing on the streets of San Francisco, circa 1994. As you can tell from this pic, I’ve been blessed with impeccable fashion sense my whole life:
✓ Cosby Sweater (before it was creepy)

✓ Knit Elf Stocking Hat

✓ Granny Glasses

✓ Star Trek Keychain Clipped To Belt Loop

Also for anyone curious, my mom is “The Space Lady,” a famous* street musican and “outsider icon.” Her Greatest Hits album was originally released on hand-made cassette tapes back in the 80′s. It was re-released by an actual record label a couple years ago and was named in Vice Magazine’s 50 Best Albums of 2014 and NME’s “101 Albums to Hear Before You Die”

*by street musican standards, anyway.”

The Questionable Headband

The Questionable Headband - Black And White

“My mother’s story is all I have to go by on this one. She claims to have been blindsided by a small, local modeling agency photo shoot with their own idea of props to benefit my budding modeling career. Needless to say this was my first and last photo shoot.”
