Family Portrait

On A Pedestal

“While I was away at college my family had to take a portrait for a church directory, so they took a framed photo of me. It was the photographer’s great idea to put me on a pedestal. Also, my Dad and brother had been fighting over something trivial, my Mom was annoyed, and my youngest brother habitually refused to smile for any picture.”

Rock Of Love

“Yeah, this is supposed to be a family photo, but let’s be honest: the real star is my brother’s ginormous, outrageously over-teased hair.”

Jesse’s Protest

“My Mom bought a family portrait for a school fundraiser.  My little brother, Jesse, refused to cooperate, so finally my Mom told him he could just turn around.  Sixteen-year-old me is in the tie-dye, wishing this was not my family.”

Pucker Up

“In theory, having everyone kiss was a good idea. Until the look on one of the girls face showed that perhaps we were wrong.”

VC Andrews Novel Comes to Life

“My mother did a glamour photo shoot for my father as a Christmas gift one year and took me along for the ride. I will never forget this day and I am curious as to what really went through my father’s head when he received the portfolio of pictures this day produced. This is one of the better ones.”
