Family Portrait

Sisterly Love

“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

“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.”

Rat Pack

“Just me and my fiancé, and three of our ratbabies Paul, Phil, and Amelie. We wanted a family portrait. We had to call every studio in town to find someone willing to do it. Only one agreed…if we snuck them in.”
