Passport Photos

Passport Photos - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is me and my family (I’m the kid on the right) taken probably around ’88. My dad was taking passport photos of himself and my mom, and they had to try a few shots to get the size just right. Since he didn’t want to waste any film, he had us sit on the couch for the whole photo-shoot.”

Backstabber - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was home for the Holiday’s after I joined the Navy and completed boot camp. My father thought we should have a family portrait. My brother picked up a knife and held it over my unsuspecting father’s head.”

Footloose - Family Portrait

“This is a family picture my aunt found. The ginger with the jorts flexing is my dad. The hot chick who looks like she’s from Charlie’s Angels is my mom. The rest of my family looks confused/disgusted. I share his enthusiasm for jorts.”

Double Vision

Double Vision - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“The year was 1976. My mom had just come home with that fabulous perm, and, apparently, I asked to have the same done to my hair.  I was three or four at the time, so I’ll have to take her word on that.  I do, however remember the traumatic experience of having that fro cut off several days after this picture was taken, because I played in a sandbox too emphatically and my mother couldn’t comb through the tangled, sandy mess!  This picture will always make me smile (while shaking my head).  It shows just how tiny our immediate family was – just me and my mom, with dad behind the camera at his studio. It’s goofy, sure, but back then, it was just ‘us’.”
