The Fisherman’s Pride Recreation - Family Portrait

The Fisherman’s Pride Recreation

“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. :(”

Beating The Odds - Birthdays

Beating The Odds

“This is a school assignment I did when I was about to turn eight. I was excited that my friend Kim was coming to my birthday party. I also reminisced about something my mother had said to me when I was younger. Gee, thanks Mom. I loved Miss Smith’s response: “Why not?” My mother and I had a bit of a strained relationship to say the least. LOL.”

Project Makeover: Kid Edition

“That time my Mum took me to get a ‘makeover.’ She’s English so my best guess is she was trying to recreate what Queen Elizabeth looked like as a child as some sort of ‘homage’ to her country. I have no idea.”

Frowny The Clown

“Every year my mom’s bowling league celebrates Halloween. If my mom looks a little scary in this it’s because this photo is one of several my dad insisted she pose for before leaving. Mom is not amused. I think she’s had just about enough.”

Father’s Day Disaster - Family Portrait

Father’s Day Disaster

“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.”
