Fall Flinchers

“My mom loves taking fall photos. Unfortunately my family detests direct sunlight. And my youngest brother is apparently just biding his time until his next golf tournament.”

Dropping The Baton

“I had been excited all day long for my baton recital. My mom had gotten my hair and makeup done and I could not wait to get on stage. However, I did not know there would be pictures involved. When I was presented to the photographer, I was more than pissed. The face you are seeing in this picture is basically me saying ,’Screw you, Mom and Dad.’ And the hell of it all is…the photographer PICKED THIS PICTURE TO PRINT. My parents BOUGHT IT. My parents GAVE COPIES TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. It will live in infamy on numerous refrigerators, in many photo albums, and now, in all its glory all over the web.”

The Accidental Tourists

“This is myself, my mother, my dad, and my little brother at Disney World in 1985. I think we could be a close second to the Griswolds.”

Crochet Couture

“Me, my mom, my stepdad, my brother, and my stepbrothers. My parents had those sweaters made by a family friend. I felt like an idiot wearing it at the time but looking back I think it’s hilarious. And I think my mom still has the sweaters.”

The Birthday Balloons

My 5th birthday in 1979. My mom is not known for baking or photography skills, as evidenced in this blurry snapshot of my patchy cake. Fire displays and phallic balloon sculptures?”

Corporate Takeover

“I was 11 going on 41. Glamour Shots at their finest. I remember being so proud of my hair while walking around the mall, and everyone looking at be because I was so beautiful. I look like I have two volleyballs on the sides of my head.”

The Everyday Ronald

“I came across this photo in a box in my parents’ garage, of my family and me. And no, it’s not Halloween.”

The Grad Photo

“My friends and I met at a prenatal class so our babies were close in age. We thought it would be adorable to have a professional picture taken of our bundles of joy. Our offspring conspired against our Gerber Baby-esque plans.”

Stockholm 10316

“As a five year old in Stockholm, Sweden I was in love with Brandon so I made this with a little help from my older sisters (who both loved Dylan).”
