Baseball Picture Day - Kids

“It rained on our scheduled Pony League baseball photo day, but rather than reschedule photos for a more suitable day, the photographer decided to power forward and move things indoors … or more specifically, set up the shots in the messy, drab, completely inappropriate pavilion next to the field. So instead of home plate, there’s now a dirty crumpled up paper towel at my feet. A picnic table doubles as the catcher, and the only thing the concrete wall in the background is stopping is my shadow. Due to a lack of space (or concern on the photgrapher’s part), 4 1/2 players from my team are shown patiently waiting their turn. Hopefully I still sold the batting stance with a steely look of determination in my eyes to distract from the photo’s numerous shortcomings. None of this even takes into account my era-appropriate mesh cap, messy (non-cleat) sneakers, unhinged stirrups over my socks, and crumpled hiked-up pants. It was the perfect storm of awkward youth sports photography.”

Trading Places - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“My husband couldn’t make it to the family portrait photo shoot. Rather than cancel, I brought a “replacement”. This is what went in all our Christmas cards. My husband’s family was not amused and he wouldn’t talk to me for days.”

The Graduates - Graduation

“This is a picture of me and my high school boyfriend. Couples Grad Pics were a big thing in the ’90s I was way more into it than my BF. All the photographer said was, ‘Give me your sweet I’m in love face.’ I think I nailed it. While my boyfriend at the time looked like a serial killer. The print didn’t get ordered.”
