Phoning It In

Phoning It In - Family Portrait

“This is a photo of my whole family. My uncle was away on a hunting trip, so my aunt gave the photographer a picture of him so he could just ‘blend him in’ to the background. Clearly this man was a professional!”

The Choker

The Choker - Family Portrait

“This is a picture of my brother and me. He is 13 years older than I am and he would constantly pick on me growing up. Apparently he couldn’t stop himself during the family photo session.”

Timer Troubles

Timer Troubles - Dad

“This family portrait was taken in 1970. My Dad had a new slide camera with a timer. I’m the one in the ‘fashionable’ white polyester pantsuit. I have no idea what my mother was doing, but obviously, no one was ready for the shot.”

The Compromise

The Compromise - Babies

“1979. The first time I had to get my picture taken at JC Penney’s with my baby brother, who had stolen my spotlight a few months before. I threw a tantrum, but then finally agreed to be in the picture. I still refused to smile.”

Suspension Of Disbelief

Suspension Of Disbelief - Family Portrait

“This is a picture of me (the little girl), my brother, and my parents. Yes, my brother is wearing acid washed jeans held up by red suspenders. Yes, my father is rockin’ the pencil ‘stache. Yes, I have the ‘I need an adult’ face. I’m not sure what concerns me more – what my parents are doing to my brother or my brother’s enjoyment of it.”

Crossed Up

Crossed Up - Dad

“From our family portrait session in 1991. Olan Mills gave us  this photo at no additional charge. Guess who probably got a spanking later that evening.”
