Little Drummer Girl

“This represents our one and only professionally shot family photo. It was taken at my elementary school and I was mortified to show up at school in a marching band outfit. My mother insisted. Naturally, my friends laughed.”

funny costumes, renaissance fair

The Rennies

This photo was taken in 2007 or 2008. I am the young girl in this my parents made me go to this renaissance fair when I was sick. This day was hot, and my parents made me wear all this old looking heavier clothing. That was not pleasant. My mom is not dressed appropriate for a family picture. My brother is starring away and my dad his smile on his face. What kind of smile is that? And he is wearing sunglasses… I don’t think they had those prescription sunglasses back in the day, Dad.”

Other Side Of The Fence - Christmas

Other Side Of The Fence

“Our photographer had the kids sitting on a fence posing for holiday photos. She asked them to pretend like they were laughing which made my son look ridiculous. So, his sister thought she would pretend to push him off, and then save his life to add a little fun to the moment. It didn’t really work out for her!”

Flu Shot - Behind The Awkwardness

Flu Shot

“Our family went for flu shots. Our 13 year old daughter just couldn’t handle the idea of getting a shot, not before, during or after. We decided to take a picture after our vaccination. She just wouldn’t stop crying.”

“My girls and I took a family photo yearly when they were growing up. This was our last photo and we decided to make it memorable. We all chose an outfit and told the photographer how to pose us. This is the result.”
