Glamour Grams

“My grandmother and great grandmother around 1992 or 93. According to my grandma, ‘We went to one of those photo places in the Palm Desert mall and they duded us up like floozies. We howled when we saw these pictures.'”

Ten Pack

“This is a photo of my great-grandma and all of her great-grand children. Sears must have been having a special or something because I (front row, pink dress) remember waiting in line for a very long time before it came for our turn to have our picture taken. This explains all the children’s bored/upset faces. It was miserable at the time, but now it’s a funny and iconic family photo.”

Ink Master Jr.

“While my husband was on a business trip, my mom took my second-born to the tattoo parlor. He clearly had questions about this decision.”

The Stand-In

“This is my Dad’s family in 1991 and the photo was hanging in my grandma’s house for years with the caption written underneath. Oh the things you did before Photoshop.”

Photo Fracas

“Grandmother was taking pics at Sears with her grandkids. The boys were fussy and didn’t want to be there but the girls were great.”

White Wedding

“While looking through my parents wedding album I came across this photo. Apparently, my grandmother didn’t like the picture of herself.”

Surrender

“Our perfect family photo shoot was only a little hampered by my 2 year old granddaughter who decided to throw a complete fit during the sitting. We gave up trying to get her to look good and let her ‘do her own thing.’ She ended up at the bottom of the stairs and we went on without her…so to speak.”
