Picking A Winner

Picking A Winner - Family Portrait

“My family, the Dalys. Taken in the early 1970s. I’m the big brother. We were getting family photo at FOX studios and this was the first photo they took. My sister obviously was still getting ready. The photographer thought it was funny and my folks did too, so they had it printed. We had another taken but this one is the winner. We still talk about to this day. Here’s a photo from dad’s 73rd birthday two days ago.”

Yappy Holidays

Yappy Holidays - Christmas

“We were taking our family Christmas photo, and let’s just say the dogs weren’t in a Holly Jolly mood. This photo was the worst of the batch, but now it’s a conversation starter. We keep it right by the entrance of our home here in St. Louis.”

Shorts Story

Shorts Story - Couples

“This is my oldest brother and his wife, pre-kids. Allegedly, the traveling photographer assured him he would frame from the waist up, but obviously didn’t. But that only explains the shorts, leaving us to wonder about so many other decisions they made prior to sitting for this session.”

“This is my family photo from 1996. My Dad was attempting to copy the photo from the Beatles album called ‘With the Beatles.’ It just looks like our heads are floating.”

Sneer For The Camera

Sneer For The Camera - Dad

“I just love the contrast between my mother’s sweet, Madonna-like appearance and my father’s menacing look.  My sister is the wide-eyed innocent in this photograph, while I am the disconsolate girl in the gingham dress.”

“After a trip to Colonial Williamsburg, Mom was inspired to create costumes for the entire family for the next family photo. This hung, proudly in our living room for years.”
