Cracker Jerk

Cracker Jerk - Dad

“My father was supposed to take my sister and I to get our pictures made. I am supposed to have on a matching jacket like my sister’s. He left it in the car and rather then admit he flubbed, he just told the photographer to let the picture roll. That is why I have my picture professionally made in a Cracker Jerk Tshirt. That and our mullettude makes this photo very awkward!”

The Mummy

The Mummy - Kids

“This is a photo of my younger sister, (mummified), my older brother, (proud as ever), and me (“I didn’t do it”).  My favorite part of this picture is how, even though you can’t see my little sister’s face, you can tell she is smiling in a very “TA-DA!” way, and I can only imagine how proud she was to be our model. I don’t remember when this was taken, but I can look at the craftsmanship in the placement of the streamers, and the excellent color blocking techniques, and I know that’s my fabulous work – my brother must have been the project manager/supervisor. My siblings and I have talked about recreating this picture for our mom now that we are all in our 20′s, but it has been really hard to drum up this collection of oddly specific t-shirts.”

Learning The Hard Way

Learning The Hard Way - Kids

“I warned my son on our way to feed the geese, ‘Do NOT run up on a goose.’ He says, ‘Why?’ I say, ‘They will attack you.’ To which he replies, ‘I’m not scared of a bird.’ That’s when I knew I needed my camera.”

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.)”
