Trouble With The Pose

Trouble With The Pose - Family Portrait

“My mother took this picture and clearly I was going for the ‘hand on the hip’ pose’, but missed my mark. I don’t know why Mom didn’t point out that it looks like I’m punching myself. (And this picture was framed at my grandparent’s house.)”

Father’s Day Disaster

Father’s Day Disaster - Family Portrait

“My great idea of giving a dad a surprise portrait of his wife and children didn’t go so well. Oldest son seems depressed and in an urgent need of a restroom.  Youngest son is trying to kill the photographer with his glare or is just ticked off about the awful clothes color combination. Middle son trying to give some one in the room the eye. Mother obvious and thinks picture will be great.”

Lean In

Lean In - Family Portrait

“I don’t know what this pose is all about. It looks like our backs hurt or we are all going to puke in the next 10 seconds. All my friends say it looks like an advert for a family-TV-Show in the early 90s. I think the photo is from 2001.”

Parrot Patrol

Parrot Patrol - Family Portrait

“It was the spring of 1994 and family photos at Sears were ‘the thing to do.’ I found my one outfit that wasn’t full of bird poop and walked proudly into the mall. Guys, this was waaaay before bird flu when it was ‘cool’ to walk around with a pet parrot on your shoulder. I think this was the era when had a whopping five parrots in our home.”

Blue Ribbon Baby

Blue Ribbon Baby - Babies

“I was a newborn when my Mother and Father took me to the photo studio at the department store to have my first ‘professional’ photos taken for family. My Dad thought it would be funny to put me holding a beer. The real question is why did he have a Pabst Blue Ribbon at the department store?”

String Theory

String Theory - Babies

“I confess I’m the father in this picture. I was understandably reluctant to have my picture taken, but I must have relented on a particularly unfortunate day. The pornstache, the pudge, the restrained toddler and squashed-face baby, and the violin that nobody played….all a perfect family tableau.  I do not miss the 90s.”
