Family Portrait

Yappy Holidays

“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

“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.”

Floaters

“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

“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.”

Colonial Chic

“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.”

Pocket Man

“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

“Taken at a formal photographer’s studio  in 1975. Mom and Dad did it as a joke but I really meant it.”

Window Watcher

“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’.”
