Family Portrait

Lean In

“I don’t know what this pose is all about. It looks like our backs hurt or we are all going to puke in the next 10 seconds. All my friends say it looks like an advert for a family-TV-Show in the early 90s. I think the photo is from 2001.”

Blue Ribbon Baby

“I was a newborn when my Mother and Father took me to the photo studio at the department store to have my first ‘professional’ photos taken for family. My Dad thought it would be funny to put me holding a beer. The real question is why did he have a Pabst Blue Ribbon at the department store?”

String Theory

“I confess I’m the father in this picture. I was understandably reluctant to have my picture taken, but I must have relented on a particularly unfortunate day. The pornstache, the pudge, the restrained toddler and squashed-face baby, and the violin that nobody played….all a perfect family tableau.  I do not miss the 90s.”

Tree-creation

“The first picture was taken in 2000, and the recent one was taken in 2015. This tree was in our grandfather’s front yard, and every kid to grow up in the family played in this tree. Our Father captured the cute photo of us as children and it kind of became “The picture” that everyone hung in their houses. After 15 years we decided to recreate ‘the picture’ and it was hilarious.”

Freebie

“My buddy Josh and his older sister and brother when they were little guys. Apparently when the photographer saw all the prints from the photo shoot, he gave this one to his mom for free because it’s just so hilarious. He would hide it from me when I went to his house because I would cry from laughing at it so much.”

Angels In The Food Court

“It was family day at the mall and my brother and I were blindsided by this awful scheme. My mother stopped right in front of one of those kiosks where you dress up your kids in mortifying costumes and take pictures of them. Of course Mom was all for it, but my brother and I were not going that easy. She bribed me with a Bratz doll, my brother a toy race car, and there was ice cream included on the way home. Our faces are not the happiest, but the best part is my Shih-Tzu hair. Clearly it was my thing, looking back at all my old pictures. Thanks Mom.”
