Mom

Stacked

Stacked - Family Portrait

“My Mom booked this photo shoot. I was 12 and my sister was 15. We have no idea why the photographer thought laying in a pile on my Dad would make a good photo. And how did Mom get out of it? She must have known then how ridiculous it would look. Moms know everything.”

“A surrealistic photo of my Mom and some dude, taken somewhere in Florida in 1957. Beyond that, your guess is as good as mine.”

“My Mom and I got our photos done. Notice the hair beading. With all the feathers, we look like roosters. Mom’s expression lets you know she’s thinking, “Cock-a-doodle-doo!’”

The Fisherman’s Pride Recreation

The Fisherman’s Pride Recreation - Family Portrait

“While at a flea market several years ago, I bought a print called ‘The Fisherman’s Pride.’ It depicts a woman and her child by the seaside and the pair look exactly like me and my son–several people assumed we posed for it! So, I decided to recreate the image. I hired a photographer, had my hair professionally done in a ‘Seaside ‘do, (which really just means ‘wind blown’), and went into the studio for our shoot.

This is the result. Rather than actually going to the seaside and holding my son in my arms, or even using a seaside backdrop, I’m wrapped in a sheer cloth with my naked one-year-old on my lap. I hung a copy in my home for awhile since it was the only photo I had of me and my son at the time, but I quickly got rid of it when a neighbor asked why I was pretending to be a mermaid. :(”
