The Mummy

“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.”

Don’t Forget Me

“Our poor Mom was simply trying to get a picture of her two Boy Scouts and I had to stick my big head into the picture at the last second. Ridiculous.  The background is kind of ridiculous too now that I’m looking at it as a grown-up.  The whole picture makes me say…’WTF?'”

“I found an old book I made in elementary school when I was nine. I’m starting to understand why they wouldn’t let me finish it.”

Learning The Hard Way

“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.”

Eyes Of The Tiger

“This was at my high school Daddy-Daughter Dance in 1990. Unfortunately, I loved this sweater and wore it often. Never mind the rest of the fashion faux pas in the photo, the tiger is like a third person in the photo. The hair, the sweater…can you guess that I’m a Jersey girl? :)”

Animal Print

“No, this isn’t a Halloween costume. My Mom actually used to dress me in this outfit.”
