Harnessing His Power

Harnessing His Power - Family Portrait

“In 1991, I was diagnosed with epilepsy. My Father, at the time, was a photographer whose studio was in our home. After a long day of tests and hospital visits, he decided to take this photo of me in my epilepsy test equipment, which is worn over a few days… I still don’t know why he took it, but what you see here is a shirtless, awesome looking ten-year-old boy with acid-washed jeans and perfectly feathered hair.”

Minus Mom

Minus Mom - Family Portrait

“This is a family photo that was taken back in 2004. My Mom stepped out of frame to take off her glasses at the last second and the photographer (having had no warning that she was going to do so) kept shooting anyway. My Dad, brother, and I all had quite different reactions.”

Unbreakable

Unbreakable - Family Portrait

“My two sisters had leg injuries and my dad had two partially fractured vertebra because he fell down the shed in our garden. (Everybody is doing good though and they will be fine soon!) My dad had the great idea to take an early Christmas photo to send our friends and relatives to show how happy we are. My mom and I added our own dressings to fit into the picture.”

Nightmare Before Christmas

Nightmare Before Christmas - Christmas

“This was our family Christmas card. Trust me there are many more gems like this one. As we finished Thanksgiving dinner, we all dreaded the coming family photo, to embarrass us for many more generations. The things that some mothers do to their children border on child abuse.”
