Dog Lover

“This was a family photo we took this past Christmas. My brother is the only member of our family who isn’t in the relationship, but not wanting to be the odd man out he called upon his dog, Dutch, to fill in.”

Trading Places

“My husband couldn’t make it to the family portrait photo shoot. Rather than cancel, I brought a “replacement”. This is what went in all our Christmas cards. My husband’s family was not amused and he wouldn’t talk to me for days.”

Eyes Up Here

“My sisters and I thought it would be a nice Christmas present for our parents if we had a professional portrait taken of all our families. But the children were too young, and there were too many of them to get them all to look at the camera (much less smile) at the same time. The adults turned out good though.”

The Winter Bikini

“My mother insisted on the bikini and wanted water in the background. The only Sears portrait studio backdrop with water was the one with the snow in the background.”

Five Kids One Haircut

“This picture was a free session done at our local bank.  When they asked how many copies we wanted to order, our Mom laughed.  She was surprised we didn’t break the camera!”
