The Spirit Of ’93 - Dad

The Spirit Of ’93

“My sister hired a photographer to take our family picture all dressed up in our red, white and blue in 1993.  Our Dad, pictured in the white shoes, was very patriotic and my sisters and I are as well.  It all made sense at the time but now we can laugh and call this picture one of our most awkward family photos!  Thank you to my sister  for always thinking up such wonderful memories for our family!!”

Red, White, And Groovy - Family Portrait

Red, White, And Groovy

“My Mom has always been a creative sewer. Back in the early 70’s she thought dressing the family alike in the cool, trendy flag cloth would be a great idea. Note the awesome brown polyester pants and cool white belts sported by the guys! And little me on my father’s knee! This picture has been out of the family’s eye for decades and I recently dug it out of somewhere.  I showed it to my Mom and her reaction was “Good lord, what was I thinking?” That got a huge chuckle from me!”

The Patriot - Family Portrait

The Patriot

“This is my family’s one and only professionally taken portrait. I remember being so angry my mom made me wear the uniform from my Fife and Drum Marching Band (for which I also had no love). The photo sessions were taken at my grammar school so the entire school was able to partake in my misery. I am smiling though. Somehow.”

Kill Bill: The High School Years - School Photos

Kill Bill: The High School Years

“This was one of my senior pictures.  The photographer told me to bring some props. I don’t think he expected me to bring my katana. He couldn’t figure out how pose me with it appropriately. Needless to say the school wouldn’t accept this for the yearbook.”
