Family Portrait

Leggings

“My parents hired a photographer to come to the house and take a family picture. I titled it “Shamus Shins” because the angle accentuates the shins on all of us. The looks on our faces is just hilarious! We were all crammed on the couch that us kids were not allowed to sit on in the room we were not allowed in.”

The Dribbler Revisited

Well, we’ve been hearing from some our favorite AFP-ers this week and this man is no exception. Jim A.K.A “The Dribbler” sent us this photo of his sister to prove that she taught him everything he knows.

Apparently, it runs in the family.

Long live the seventies.

Falling Slowly

“My daughter and I had been holding hands and she was leaning away from me and our photographer caught the perfect moment!  So the rest of us are looking fabulous while my 2 year old is crashing into the pavement!”

The Final Frontier

“My daughter’s father gave his whole family space outfits for Christmas in hopes to get the family together for a photo session. I thought it was the oddest idea ever.”

Roller Derby

“This photo was taken in the Fall of 1966. My Dad just returned from a hunting trip with the hide & antlers of his prized 5 point bull elk. It was Saturday night and my older sister & I just had our hair rolled for church the next morning. I was obviously thrilled to have my picture taken with the stupid elk and rollers in my hair.”

On Golden Pond

“A very short-lived photo studio opened at the mall near our house and my brother and I begged for months to get our family photo taken there.  Finally, our parents relented and  our family spent a glorious evening trying a variety of poses and costumes before selecting this gem.  The real highlight came with people’s reactions to the photo after we had it framed and placed over the fireplace.  Because this was before the advent of Photoshop, a lot of people ACTUALLY BELIEVED THAT THIS HAD HAPPENED…even one of my brother’s girlfriends.”
