“When I was younger, my family and I would have themed Halloween costumes. This year was Beauty and the Beast. My aunt’s Lumiere costume was a crowd favorite, of course, and my older sister was forced to be Cogsworth just for the photo. The photo also features myself as Belle, my little sister as Chip, my mother at Mrs. Potts, and my dad as the Beast. It’s an odd picture, but one of my favorites from my childhood.”

“At 9 years old, I learned to waterski. Being short, I got a lot of spray in the face. Goggles seemed like a good idea at the time.”
“This is me after I used up a tube of my mother’s lipstick…everywhere but my lips. Needless to say, my mother felt the need to capture this on film. Upon seeing it, most people comment that I look like I’m covered in blood. Lovely.”

“I was so tired of my little sister following me around and having to be in every picture I was in – she just had to be the center of attention. This time my mom told me (in the red dress) and my friend while playing dress up to pose for a picture and I was not going to let my sister be in it. I held the door closed (notice my devilish smile) so she could not come outside in the picture. My mom didn’t even notice this until she got the picture developed. And I saw my little sister got her way, she was still in the picture.”
