Photos

Pizza Party

“In 1991, my dad opened a pizza shop called Lotsa Motsa Pizza. Before he opened the doors to the shop, we had our family photos with the pizza shirts and pizza. I’m pretty happy we did because it produced some pretty awesomely awkward pictures.”

Playing House

For those as obsessed as we are, AFP friend Suzanne Heintz is back with a film documenting her 14 year journey around the world with a family of mannequins.

You can even pick up her coffee table book.

Lemonade Stand

“Some members of the family were late for another Easter dinner they needed to attend, my father-in-law was grumping about standing for too long, my brother-in-law ran to grab the ladder so I could set the camera on it as a kids were escaping left and right. After twenty minutes of gathering the crew for a quick portrait before we dispersed, I finally figured out how to set the self-timer, framed the photo and clicked the button.

The Good Wife

“I was newly married to the gentleman sitting in the garage and this was 1985. Women’s liberation didn’t hit very hard in my house growing up, so when I married young at 19, I felt it was my duty to be a good little wife and keep up his 1978 Camaro Z28. He happily sat there while I did the oil change, too. He’ll tell you that it was all my idea. HA! I’m still married to that guy and love him dearly, but my how times have changed. Oh, and I can’t even remember having a big mullet like that. Good GAWD! I also can’t remember who took this photo, but I’m pretty sure it was my father-in-law, grinning happily that his son had married a ‘good woman’.”

Eye Contact Revisited

“Hey guys at AFP!  I know you have had a lot of success with the “Eye Contact” photo (and my sister-in-laws family gets recognized often while out and about!) I sent in several years ago!  We recreated the scene over Thanksgiving.  Aunt Telcia is now 7 months pregnant, so we had my husband, Trent, ( Aunt Telcia’s brother) fill in.  I thought you would like the see the picture and the growth of the family featured!”
