Party Like It’s 1995

“I was nine years old, and my younger sister was almost 7.  I vaguely remember my mom giving us a ton of New Year’s party favors for us to play with. Apparently we tried them on, and she wanted a photo. Thank God she caught us in our best clothes…a magenta wind suit and short-alls with tights and a turtleneck. I guess this was also that phase where she let us do our own hair. You might also notice that I am wearing a Nutcracker necklace that I was particularly fond of. Everything about this photo screams  cool.”

The Loophole

“I hated my baby sister. I hated being dressed like her. I hated being forced to play with her. And when I was told not to hit her I found a loophole. We’re thick as thieves now. But then? I’d ripped her stupid blonde head off.”

Too Much

“This happened after my son spent the night away from his sister. When he returned, they hugged. I went to take a picture of the hugging, then this happened. I told them, “That’s too much!!!”

The Moment She Realized She Was The Middle Child

“I think this was THE moment that Katie realized that she was a middle child…. To say she was unhappy that her SISTER got to do everything including holding the new baby brother for pictures, would be an understatement.”

Banana Boy

“I wasn’t able to attend the appointment for my son’s senior pictures.  I sent my son off with his sister (because I assumed she would give good guidance for pictures) and the photographer.  This is what I got.  We used it on his graduation announcement.”

Permission To Recreate, Please

“Easter 1983 with my four siblings in front of the house we grew up in.  For Christmas this year, 2015, we re-created the photo for my parents.  We asked permission from the current homeowners to take the pic.”

Sunshine And Rain

We drove through a snow storm to get holiday portraits for the second year in a row. My son was wearing clothes that were one size too small and hand-me-downs, and my daughter was wearing a Christmas tree costume that I bought on clearance at Halloween time.”
