Men In Back

“This was taken after my sister’s white coat ceremony for vet school. We didn’t realize we probably shouldn’t have posed like this until after the pic. Not exactly the style we were going for.”

Cardboard Daughter

“My parents threw a graduation party for themselves after the last kid, (the one on the left end), graduated from high school. The oldest child was out of state at the time and unable to attend. So my mom took a cardboard moving box, cut it out in a shape that resembled a human being, and stuck her face on it.”

Graduation Day

“I just received my Master’s Degree and had pictures taken. I tried to get a picture with my kids, and this what we ended up with. Never has a photo captured each of their personalities so perfectly!”
