The Pre-Photoshop Days - Family Portrait

The Pre-Photoshop Days

“Circa 1980. There I am in all my split-end, buck-toothed glory, with my had on my mom’s knee. My dad’s thumb and index finger are pressed together per the photographer’s artistic direction. But the best part is that since my oldest brother was away at college and wasn’t able to be in the picture with us, so Mom taped his high school graduation picture right on it.”

Nude-iversary - Mom & Dad

Nude-iversary

“This is a photo of me and my family over ten years ago. We were celebrating my parents’ 30th wedding anniversary and even though I was fresh out of the shower and wrapped in a towel, they wanted a picture. Nothing says ‘Congratulations, Mom & Dad’ quite like appearing naked behind their anniversary cake.”

Hug Malfunction

“This is a photo of my twin brother and I with our mom when we were about 5 years old. I went in for a hug and ended up copping a feel. For years I hated seeing this photo hanging on the hallway wall. Now I think it’s hilarious.”

Headroom - Family Portrait

Headroom

“My parents had gotten divorced and Dad got remarried right before this was taken. Between the families there were nine kids: my siblings, half-siblings, and step-siblings. The adults had decided to take portraits with all the different family combinations. If I remember correctly, there was lots of arguing about which kids should be in which photo. I think this photo captures our response to the drama.”

“This is my brother Jake’s rec league basketball picture circa 1990. The actual team name as you might have deduced was the ‘Bucks’. Lucky for us there was a fortuitous fold in the shirt that gives us our accidental master piece. On a little side note, this picture in a larger form (8×10 I think) was proudly displayed on a wall in my Grandmothers house for years. She never understood why people always laughed at this picture. Needless to say she didn’t have an eye for details.”
