Keep Your Eye On The Ball

“My brother threw a ball at my eye when I was 10 years old and it was picture day two weeks later. My eye stayed like this for 4 years. I was also in Special Ed at the time. I think this is why I became a stand-up comic.”

Grabbing My Attention - Family Portrait

Grabbing My Attention

“I’m a photographer at a Sears Portrait Studio and I conned my mother and her new husband to come get some photos  made with me. I was having difficulty smiling without making the squinty-eye face.  I guess my mom was getting tired of waiting on me to finally get my act together, so she reached up and grabbed my boob to make me laugh.  This was the result. I couldn’t make that face again if I tried. Not surprisingly, this is my mother’s biggest and most natural smile in the whole 2 hour session! Mom’s poor new husband doesn’t even know what he got himself into…”

Cheaper By The Dozen - Family Portrait

Cheaper By The Dozen

“This is a family photo circa 1997, of my grandmother and her grandchildren, (including me, the girl on the right in the pink dress and awful knockoff of the “Rachel” haircut.)  Clearly, all of us in the photo are a hot mess, considering not ONE person is looking at the camera, and most of the small children look as if they were subjected to the clown from the movie, “IT”, right before the picture was taken.”

Big Baby - Babies

Big Baby

“Between his giant, hairless head and his adorable neck wrinkles, my fiance, Andrew, still looks exactly like his baby pictures. The first time I visited his parents and saw the old photos, I knew what their Christmas present would be the next year.

I scanned in the original sepia toned baby pics, and spend a day demanding Andrew recreate them. This wasn’t as fun as we thought it would be, because it involved me directing Andrew to do impossible things like “make your chin more wrinkled, but don’t tip your head down. Look towards the sun, but don’t squint and don’t frown. Giggle like a baby! No, no, not like that. Be more cute! Eyes wider but also make your neck fatter and relax your shoulders! Stay still while a smear this donut on you.”  Anyway, we learned I’m bad at art directing and he’s real bad at being a baby, but the photo collage came out amazing. He’s adorable, then and now.”
