Timer Troubles

Timer Troubles - Family Portrait

“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.”

Cowboy Up

Cowboy Up - Dad

“I actually like these photos, which I believe are the only posed photos we ever had shot as a family. Sure, future generations will look at us and think WTF? But those were the times, man, and my Dad loved his cowboy hat.”

Shell Shock

Shell Shock - Family Portrait

“This was in October, 1999. I thought it would be cute. My husband about killed me. I hired a professional photographer. We were in costume for over an hour. Husband drank beer to get through it. I can’t believe now that I did this. Also my daughter had just given herself a nice bang trim.”
