Monumental Disappointment

Monumental Disappointment - Kids

“Since my husband was on an extended temporary duty assignment in the D.C. area in late 2013, we jumped into homeschooling and took advantage of all the historical sights to see. After a six mile hike through the National Mall during the holidays, our last stop was to see Honest Abe. Our 7 and 9 year old boys were so thrilled to run up the steps, but when I told them to stand in front of Lincoln for a photo, you would have thought they just found out Santa wasn’t real.”

Next Time, Try A Post-It

Next Time, Try A Post-It - Couples

“I went to take a shower early this morning. Opened the curtain to find this lovely note from my S.O. Scared the crap out of me at first. Don’t worry, it was written in my son’s bathtub markers, not blood. I fell on my ass screaming before I figured that out.”

Lesson Learned

Lesson Learned - Babies

“This picture is of my little sister Noelle and me. This was from sometime in 1996. The fact that I was nine years old is my only excuse for my extraordinary bad outfit.

I loved playing with my baby sister. I am 9 years older than her, so I was able to be more interactive with her as a baby than I had been with my other younger siblings. So I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane.’ The following conversation occurred between my mom and I, moments before this photo was taken:

Mom: Rachel, she just ate, you probably shouldn’t do that.
Rachel: No, she burped she will be fine.
Mom: It really isn’t a good idea.
Rachel: But she is having so much fun.
*Noelle proceeds to spit up all over Rachel’s face*
*Mom runs and grabs a camera*
Mom: Told ya.

One of the best examples ever of ‘Mommy Knows Best.’”

Shorts Story

Shorts Story - Couples

“This is my oldest brother and his wife, pre-kids. Allegedly, the traveling photographer assured him he would frame from the waist up, but obviously didn’t. But that only explains the shorts, leaving us to wonder about so many other decisions they made prior to sitting for this session.”

Prom Fatigue

Prom Fatigue - Couples

“It was 1992. We were at my now-wife’s senior prom. This was our umpteenth picture and we just wanted to hurry up and get out of those clothes–I mean, get to the dance.”
