“My mom’s new coin purse. I love my mom.”
“The year– 1977. For my 2nd grade class picture, I was determined to wear this hat my Grandmother made for me; after all, it matched the dress my mother picked out for me! This photo is the re-take; when my mom saw the first picture – with the hat – she made me go for a do-over. Needless to say the hat came with that day too. I still stand by my decision.”

When Ahna Tessler, a New York City mom of 3-year-old twins realized she took more photos of her husband with their kids than her husband took of her and their kids, she decided to do something about it.
“I took matters into my own hands,” Tessler said. “I learned Photoshop — crappily — and superimposed myself into photos that I took of John with the kids.”
“Me and my wife’s favorite wedding photo… until we saw what was in between us. We still don’t know what it is.”
“This is my cousin’s wedding, circa 1995. I’m the one burying my face in the bouquet. Even then I knew that this would be an awkward family photo.”
