Big Fish

“Just what every kid recovering from an elbow reconstruction wants: a huge promotional fish from Long John Silvers stopping by with a care package of coloring supplies and I can’t remember what else. The early 90s were a strange time.”

Sign Of The Times

“This is my Mom circa 1987 in Amish Country PA, which would explain the wooden Amish family statues. But the Love, Sex, and the IRS sign behind her…no explaining that!”

Pengrim

“Still not sure why my mom wanted to take us for Halloween pics with the Michael Myers of penguins.”

Downsized

“My brother and his ex wife separated. Afterwards, we didn’t have a family photo without her that included my son. This was my Opa’s solution: cutting out a photo of my son and pasting it into the family photo that was taken the year before the ex came around.”

The Tuck Rule

“My bridesmaid was fixing my dress and the rest of our party seemed very concerned about it.”

Bad To The Bone

“When I was 5 years old in 1995, my Mom took me at a Glamour Shots in North Carolina. I was a ‘pageant baby’ at this time & needed some headshots for an upcoming event so my mother determined that naturally wearing a 10 sizes too big leather jacket and teasing my hair to look like I was auditioning for an 80s hair band was clearly the look for me.”

0 For 2

“That’s my hand trying to keep the baby from falling out of the chair while my husband looks down on our toddler to be sure she doesn’t face plant off the back of the table. By far our favorite shot from the kids first photo shoot together.”

The Wild Life

“When we were kids my mom was a licensed wildlife rehabilitator at our old farm in Illinois. So let the raccoon party commence!”

Fountain of Youth

“My son was almost two weeks old and I decided to do a cute sibling photo but he started to pee and his sister didn’t notice.”
