Silent Protest

“This is a picture of my sister and brother-in-law and his siblings and their spouses on New Year’s Eve. My sister is the one who has wisely chosen not to participate in this smooch-fest.”

Deep In Character - Uncles, Aunts, & Cousins

Deep In Character

“This past fall, I jokingly pretended I was upset my cousin didn’t give me a part in his wedding. So, out of pity, he assigned me as ‘chauffeur’ and pretended as if it was an important role. I decided to take it more seriously than he had ever dreamed of and not only drove them to their photo shoot, but stuck around…”

Rock N Roll All Night - Family Portrait

Rock N Roll All Night

“This is my sisters family. They really are rockstars and I’m sure they would be honored to join the AFP hall of fame. They were Kiss for Halloween and decided to get a quick family portrait while still in makeup. This picture replaced the Sears studio portrait this year.”

The Drunk Photographer - Family Portrait

The Drunk Photographer

“This is a photo of my parents and siblings, taken on Mom and Dad’s 50th wedding anniversary. We had a big party for them and had arranged several photo shoots for a family picture. The photographer had arrived somewhat inebriated at our first location, which was an outdoor site, beautifully located in front of a lake. He had really gotten on Mom’s nerves because he was so obviously tipsy and kept egging her on to smile (which wasn’t one of her best assets). The last stop was his studio. Mom was on her last nerve and this is what we got.”

Schoolhouse Rock - Kids

Schoolhouse Rock

“This is my kindergarten school photo. Everyone else in class had some sort of prop, like a baseball bat, basketball, their favorite doll, etc. I felt extremely left out, so I decided to hold my chunk of cement that I (for some weird reason) was carrying around in my backpack. I wish I could have seen my parents face when I came home with my pictures.”

Semi Formal - Dad

Semi Formal

“After spending a few hours getting ready for my junior prom (back in 1998), we had to do some family “portraits”. Apparently my father thought a bathrobe was appropriate attire for these.”

1998: A Clown Odyssey - Family Portrait

1998: A Clown Odyssey

“I am in this photo on the right-hand side, dressed as the ‘sad’ clown. My dad (in the middle) used to do clown shows for kids’ birthday parties so he had this ‘wonderful’ idea to dress us all as clowns and take a family photo. The doll on my step-mom’s lap is to represent my unborn brother who was still ‘in the oven’ at the time.

The part I remember most about this was walking around all day dressed as a clown. We went to several different photo places before finally getting the pics done, if I remember correctly, but I don’t recall why. I just remember going to different places that day and everyone was staring at us!”
