A Proper Burial

A Proper Burial - Kids

“This photo is of me and my son who just turned 11. He was born at home and the midwives stashed his placenta in our freezer. As the years went on, I couldn’t just throw it out or leave it somewhere – I made it! So after 11 years, we bought a blueberry bush and I had him bury it under there. He was thrilled.  My dad dug the hole and the cat was trying to steal the placenta.”

My Buddy

My Buddy - Babies

“As a ballsy 8 year-old, I clearly had a specific vision and a mother who humored me. To this day, I wonder what that poor photographer was thinking.”

She’s Got Pull

She’s Got Pull - Behind The Awkwardness

“We had darling two-year-olds for our ring bearer and flower girl.  While we were trying to get a picture of me and my niece, the flower girl, our spirited ring bearer decided to have a yank at my veil which was of course cemented on to my head with a thousand bobby pins and hair spray.  I thought he was going to pull out a chunk!  Children are such angels.”

An American Tail

An American Tail - Behind The Awkwardness

“Family fun at Chuck E. Cheese’s for my birthday.  As a parent myself, I find this photo highly disturbing, and causes me to question my entire childhood.  I mean, what kind of parent allows their daughter to wear socks with sandals?!”
