Family Portrait

Different Strokes

“My family posed for this shot when I was 4 or 5. I’m front and center. I laughed so hard when I rediscovered this photo. I love how we are all looking different directions.”

“This was the last time I tried to get my kids to pose for a family picture. My youngest daughter was having none of it. She would not cooperate with the photographer and we almost came to blows over it. This was the closest we could get to a happy family picture.”

Cult Of Personality

“When I was about 5 (I’m 40 now) my parents thought it would be fun to take some weird pictures on a camping trip to send to their friends and family.  Apparently, we frightened the park ranger. The end result is a pretty fantastic family portrait.  I can’t decide if we look more like the missing three from Fleetwood Mac or the leaders of a cult.”
