“This was totally the photographers idea after he saw my dad put on his cowboy hat. My mom always hated this one.”

Runner Up

“This was a photo taken of my son and myself immediately after his undefeated flag football team lost in the championship game…I was pretty happy with the outcome…my son was not. Still one of my all time favorite photos.”

Sibling Rivalry

Minor Threat

“This is a family portrait from 1987. I just love the contrast of the punk rock kids, coupled with the wholesomeness of Mom and daughter. It brings a smile to all of us, and we want to share the photo on your website.”

Monster Mash

“This was from a family trip to Universal Studios in 1976. I was obsessed with monsters. I made my poor family wait in line for this “family style” photo op with the werewolf. The photographer told us to put our arms around him. Later in the day I chased down Frankenstein, and have an equally embarrassing photo with him holding me in a bear hug.”

5 + 2

“My 7th birthday – apparently, my mom couldn’t be bothered to find a ‘7’ candle for my cake, so she used the leftover ‘5’ and ‘2’ from my sister’s and brother’s cakes! Not only did I have to do math for my birthday, but my dad decided to yank my hair for good measure.”

“When my daughter asks why she can’t wear things she thinks are ‘cool,’ I show her this photo from my freshman year in high school.”
