AFP Hall Of Fame

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.

Blades Of Glory

“My younger brother in his ‘awkward yet fabulous’ phase. Please note the following:

1. Western-style shirt with Christmas-star-snowflake ornament….
2. One exposed skate (just to prove that you’re wearing skates?).
3. Indestructible plastic-frame glasses because, of course, the parents were worried about their child breaking the stylish/expensive ones.
4. Gold lamé fabric bringing out the most unsympathetic tones in the ginger kid’s skin and hair.”

Purple Haze

“One day, back in ’81 or so, MawMaw thought it would be a good idea for us to all enjoy a few glasses of her fermented ‘friendship punch’ before heading down to the photo studio at K-Mart.”

“Myself, circa 1990. Apparently the photographer gave the print to my mother for free.”

Dress Porn

“My grandmother, bless her heart, made this dress for me by hand. However, she never noticed the fabric she was sewing was covered with pictures of a couple making out. She then rolled my hair and sent me to school…on PICTURE day… I still love you MawMaw.”

Look What Grandma Found

“We live near a man-made lake that they partially drain during the winter. We were walking around were the water had receded when Grandma called us over to share her discovery. Probably one of the strangest pictures I have ever seen. ”

Dalmatian Disturbia

“This is one of my baby pictures. That’s me being held by a person in a Dalmatian costume who is also holding an actual Dalmatian. I have begged my parents for a backstory and all my mom will say is, “I don’t know what you are talking about! This photo is brilliant! I’m brilliant!”

“My best friend at the age of three, sharing a sparkling 4th of July with his father.”
