Grandma’s Exorcism

“There’s a lot going on in this photo, from the strong 90’s vibes to each family coordinated by color. But the best part by far is that when my grandma saw 5 year old me (standing at the bottom right) wasn’t looking at the camera, she went old school photoshop and chose to replace my head with another picture of me, which is also not facing in the right direction!”

The Christening

“This was my Christening, June 1971. I’m the baby obviously, my Godmother is holding me, my parents are next to her. Their hideous outfits aren’t the “awkward” part of this photo. In the background, my grandmother is pulling my sister’s hair while my brother is recovering from a smack! All of this right on the front steps of a church.”

Destination Wedding

“My mom got pregnant out of wedlock in 1969. Since it was taboo back then, she was forced to get married. Her father was in the hospital on the day she was to be wed, so the ceremony was held in his small hospital room (wedding cake is in lower right of pic). You can tell she was thrilled about it by the look on her face.”

Sweat

“This is a photo of my grandparents, aunt and uncle around 1970. Nana said it was about 100 degrees in the studio, but they weren’t about to reschedule. My favorite part is the stark contrast of my beet-red grandfather and my paper-white grandmother.”
