Family Portrait

Minus Mom

“This is a family photo that was taken back in 2004. My Mom stepped out of frame to take off her glasses at the last second and the photographer (having had no warning that she was going to do so) kept shooting anyway. My Dad, brother, and I all had quite different reactions.”

How To Label Your Family

“My Mom labeled this family photo for us kids before we died so we would know who was who, and who was a bitch.”

A Kiss On The Cheek

“The photographer told him to love on his mommy, so naturally…”

Unbreakable

“My two sisters had leg injuries and my dad had two partially fractured vertebra because he fell down the shed in our garden. (Everybody is doing good though and they will be fine soon!) My dad had the great idea to take an early Christmas photo to send our friends and relatives to show how happy we are. My mom and I added our own dressings to fit into the picture.”

Nightmare Before Christmas

“This was our family Christmas card. Trust me there are many more gems like this one. As we finished Thanksgiving dinner, we all dreaded the coming family photo, to embarrass us for many more generations. The things that some mothers do to their children border on child abuse.”

Welcome To The Gun Show

“This pic was taken of myself, my two little brothers, and our father in the early 90’s. Apparently, we felt the need to show off our lack of muscles!”

Silent Rebellion

“My Mom forced my Dad to get his picture taken in the early 80’s. Years later, I discovered his silent rebellion.”

Mom Wanted Twins

“This is a photo of my boyfriend when he was two years old. Why does he match that doll? Why is there a lit candle in the middle of the train? Did the photographer provide the doll and matching outfits? We will never know.”
