Family Portrait

Sleep Deprived

“Mom sewed all the clothes we were wearing, even the neckties and the underwear. I’m not sure why three of us look like we hadn’t slept in a week.”

Basket Case

“My parents had brought me to a portrait studio, and apparently I didn’t want my picture taken. It was taken anyway, just with a surreal approach.”

Direct Hit

“This family portrait was taken during a beach photo session. Yes, that is a frisbee flying towards my husband’s face. Fortunately, nobody was seriously injured in the process, and we DID end up using this picture on our Christmas card that year. It just pretty much sums up our family in a way no words can.”

The Color Of Anguish

“I was two and by brother was four. I’m not sure why I was in such a bad mood that day but I didn’t want to have my picture taken.
My parents told the photographer to take the picture anyway. This was the end result.”

Mohawk Pride

“This is a photo of my family taken in 1987. I have a long mohawk and I am in the back center of this photo. My dad wanted to know how I was going to hide the mohawk in the family photo but my mom said ‘Heck no, he’s gonna wear it up!'”

Where Do I Put My Arms?

“I’m the one next to my Dad, holding my arms in like I’m surrounded by lepers. In the years since, I’ve taken more natural photos with my family, but this one can still be seen today on top of my Mom’s TV.”

Change Of Heart

“This is my husband and four children. We asked the kids to sit down with Dad to get their pictures together, but my daughter didn’t want to be in the picture, so said, “Okay, just stay over there.” I started to take the picture and she got even more upset for being left OUT of the picture. As you can see my husband was also annoyed!”
