“At Christmas last year (2013), my younger sister was up from Florida (a not so common occurrence for the holidays) so we were trying to get some good pictures of the four siblings together. At some point we wanted to include our Mom in a picture, but since there really wasn’t enough room on the couch for her to sit with us, we tried this pose for fun. My wife was taking the picture and she was noticing that some of us were squinting. So she told everyone to open their eyes wide. Hence these expressions.”

“My kids thought it would be fun to draw on my face while I was sleeping. Thank God it wasn’t permanent marker!”

“This was the photo shoot for my newborn son. I was supposed to be looking lovingly at him and instead sneezed all over him. The photographer caught it at just the right moment.”

“The year was 1976. My mom had just come home with that fabulous perm, and, apparently, I asked to have the same done to my hair. I was three or four at the time, so I’ll have to take her word on that. I do, however remember the traumatic experience of having that fro cut off several days after this picture was taken, because I played in a sandbox too emphatically and my mother couldn’t comb through the tangled, sandy mess! This picture will always make me smile (while shaking my head). It shows just how tiny our immediate family was – just me and my mom, with dad behind the camera at his studio. It’s goofy, sure, but back then, it was just ‘us’.
