The Klingers

“We’re a close knit family in case you didn’t notice.”

The Chug

“This is a picture of my family on Easter sometime in the 90’s. I’m on the right with the stonewashed pink pants, mullet to match my older brother’s. The only thing in this picture that focuses the awkwardness away from me is my Grandpa in the next room slamming what I hope to be his first Easter beer of the day because if memory serves me correctly, we always took our pictures before church.”

MS Paint

“This is a picture of me (in the front) and my family. It was originally taken without my dad, as he was always off being a pilot somewhere. My parents were having problems at the time, and so, in wanting a complete family photo, my mother added my dad – cut out from another picture – to it. In that one, his head was 3x larger than ours, facing the wrong way, and his shirt had been marked in with a sharpie marker. When my parents stopped having problems, she changed the photo of him to the one now there. This was also the time that my mom discovered MS Paint. She thought my sister was being disrespectful by wearing an Arachnophobia shirt, so using her paint skills, she whited it out. She printed this gem and put it up in our family home, where it remained on the wall for over ten years.”

Whiter Shade Of Pale

“When my father got remarried after my parent’s divorce, my mother went through the family albums and cut him out of all of the family photos. Using scissors became too labor intensive, so she switched to white-out.”

Splash

“This is my mom, dad and brother in Sydney.¬†Posing on a bridge, my brother set the camera on timer, and ran back to join my parents. However, he had too much momentum and fell back into the pond.”

The Caddie

Ever since my older sister was born, my dad was filming and taking photos of us. Then I was born and we went to Hersey park. It seems having a baby in a stroller helped equip dad with a way to carry his camera bag.

Got Her Goat

“One of our goats and I were both pregnant with twins and due the same week. I made her dress up and take maternity photos with me.”

Logjam

“This is a photo of my dad (far right) and his three brothers. I guess the photographer couldn’t find a larger prop to set them on, and instead had them straddle and squeeze in.”

Hockey Mom

This is a photo of my mom, my brother, myself, and my soon to be born younger brother. I’m awkwardly in the hockey equipment on the bottom left. A family friend talked mom into having us all pose for this photo. It went on to win some sort of award in a Newport, RI photo show. It also hung in our house while I was growing up, which made for some awkward moments when friends came over.”

Head Of The Class

“This is my sister graduating high school back when you had to wait to get photos developed.”
