Trading Places

“My husband couldn’t make it to the family portrait photo shoot. Rather than cancel, I brought a “replacement”. This is what went in all our Christmas cards. My husband’s family was not amused and he wouldn’t talk to me for days.”

Double Vision

“The year was 1976. My mom had just come home with that fabulous perm, and, apparently, I asked to have the same done to my hair.  I was three or four at the time, so I’ll have to take her word on that.  I do, however remember the traumatic experience of having that fro cut off several days after this picture was taken, because I played in a sandbox too emphatically and my mother couldn’t comb through the tangled, sandy mess!  This picture will always make me smile (while shaking my head).  It shows just how tiny our immediate family was – just me and my mom, with dad behind the camera at his studio. It’s goofy, sure, but back then, it was just ‘us’.

Magnolia

“I’ve been scanning old Kodachrome slides and I thought this was just a nice photograph of my mother among the magnolias… then I saw my someone peering over her shoulder. So creepy.”

Upside Down

“We had taken our son to Sears for a photo session. We received the proofs and ordered prints, not realizing that his middle finger was proudly displayed in the photo.  It wasn’t until years later we noticed it.”
