Take Your Pick

“We took this family picture during a trip to Clark’s Trading Post in New Hampshire. We were obviously very excited to get those awesome glitter & streamer batons and to be sharing the day together. But the best part is the woman picking at her underwear.”

The Grass Is Greener, Until It Isn’t

“We had artificial turf installed the day before Easter. We thought it would be good for egg hunting and taking an Easter picture but one child was not happy about being unable to feel the dirt. She hadn’t yet forgiven us when we asked them to take this picture.”

“How my boyfriend got all those frogs to stay put is a mystery unto itself. Don’t know how it took seven years of dating to find this picture, but it was worth the wait.”

Camera Shy - Kids

Camera Shy

“My son, daughter, and I went to a community day event in Jamestown, Virginia, where we won this gift basket in a raffle. The organizers wanted to take some publicity pics with us, and of course my daughter was being a stinker and threw a fit. Only my son and I sat for them. Years later I was clearing out my email inbox when I rediscovered this gem. Kids can be so creepy!”

Baby Crazy

“It’s safe to say I was really proud of my Beanie Baby collection. I do still have all my ‘babies’ and that tie-dye shirt. Don’t have the glasses but I do have a pair of Warby Parkers that look a lot like the ones I was wearing here.”
