Dad

The Catch

“It was always great when dad took time out of his career to spend time with us.”

Free Bird

“I don’t know where this was taken, I think I blocked the whole experience from my memory. I’m not sure why there is a mime next to a Big Bird lookalike. If you look closely you’ll notice Big Bird’s muscular thighs.”

Backseat Rider

“Christmas of 1982.  I was 2 years old and obviously not the favorite child.  My only option was to take a literal back seat to my sister if I wanted to go sleigh riding. Apparently this was seemed like a safe idea to my dad and my mom who snapped the shot. This picture pretty much sums up the next 30 years of my life.”

Goal

“At a family birthday party, I thought I would do the fatherly thing and play a little soccer with my daughter.  As I approached her to try to steal the ball, she sent a rocket in my direction. I was okay after writhing on the ground for a few minutes.  We switched to football for the rest of the afternoon.

Call Me Maybe

“When my husband was a teenager, he got a phone in his bedroom with a caller ID, which at the time was a big deal. This is my husband’s dad in the photo because he wanted some photos taken to show off the phone.”

Big Fish

“Just what every kid recovering from an elbow reconstruction wants: a huge promotional fish from Long John Silvers stopping by with a care package of coloring supplies and I can’t remember what else. The early 90s were a strange time.”

Tat Tale

“My daughter came to my studio while I was mid-tattoo. What could possibly go wrong?”

Mindfulness

“The first was a 1970s gem. The second is the 2021 re-do for my sister’s 50th birthday.”
