AFP Hall Of Fame

Taking The Plunge

“My daughter collected toilet plungers when she was little. None of them ever met a toilet, face-to-face, she just liked them. She always wanted to see the ‘plunger section’ of any given store we went to. She painted the handles on some of them and would frequently line them up as her opening act for the puppet shows she would put on.”

Clothing Optional

“This is a photo of my family.  There’s plenty going on in this, but the best part is that the photographer positioned me, in a shoulder-baring black shirt behind my black haired mother… immortalizing me on my parent’s wall as the weird naked girl photobombing this family picture.”

AFP Loves This Family

“My hubby is a teacher. I’m a stay-at-home Mom. We have 5 kiddos, 4 of them adopted through foster care. A long time ago, I heard our pastor point out that when it comes to kids, rules without relationship = rebellion. From that day forward, I made a promise to myself to always make relationship with our kids a priority. And that means having fun with them and having a sense of humor. We want to teach our kids that being able to laugh at yourself (not in a bad, degrading way, but in a good way) is a wonderful attribute. So, we always do crazy photos for our Christmas cards. This year, we decided to make an awkward family photo.”

The Puke Mystery

“During family pictures my bouncy 5-year-old was a little sluggish but I was thrilled that he wasn’t hyper. When my photographer said “Ummm he just threw up,” I thought she meant the baby, so I checked him for spit up, saw none, and said, “No he’s good.” Then I saw the puddle at my feet. We rushed to the car and as we were driving away the photographer flagged us down to show us the picture she had captured. We laughed so hard we cried.

That was the only time he threw up that day, and he was totally fine and hour later, so we were puzzled. The next day, as my husband and I kept discussing that he must have eaten something that upset his stomach, he finally came clean. While we had been upstairs getting dressed, he snuck into the kitchen and ate a whole tub of ice cream. Then he cleaned up the mess and thought he got away with it. Apparently, he didn’t understand how that much ice cream would make him so sick. He learned the hard way! And it made for a great Christmas card!”

Penny Cat Aurora Leopard Butterfly With No Wings

“Our 4 year old daughter, who refers to herself as Penny Cat Aurora Leopard Butterfly With No Wings, was greatly anticipating picture day at preschool. She styled her own outfit for the occasion, and when the photographer told her to ‘Smile pretty like a princess’, this magic happened.”
