Pocket Man

Pocket Man - Dad

“My Dad’s self-portrait. Is there anything more 90s than acid-wash denim and a fake Rolex? As for the pocket, I don’t know what to tell you.”

Keeping Their Noses Clean

Keeping Their Noses Clean - Family Portrait

Window Watcher

Window Watcher - Family Portrait

“This was not one of our best family photos, but somehow it works! It was Easter. I was newly pregnant and throwing up all day. Our one-year-old daughter would not sit still, hence the look on my husband’s face. Oh, and our three-year-old son decided this would be the only spot he would stand in. Somehow he looks like he is photobombing the pic, and is possibly an extra in ‘Children of the Corn’.”

Sisterly Love

Sisterly Love - Family Portrait

“My sister and I were about 20 and 22, and our little brother would have been about 15. We went to get family portraits taken and the photographer made us pose like this. My sister joked that our little brother smelled like farts, like he’d been “trapped in a room with 100 people farting for 100 minutes.”  This is now a family classic.”

Side Eye

Side Eye - Black And White

“Over 60 years ago, my parents had a picture done professionally of my two older sisters and me. This was one of the “proofs” they received. My two older sisters have now passed. I showed this to a friend who sent me one of your cards and suggested I send this to you. My middle sister had no idea why she had the ‘sideways’ eyes, but it has brought a lot of humor to our family for many years.”
