Sharp Objects

“Florida, Halloween 1980. Me and my dad. My parents took a very liberal approach to the question of whether babies should be allowed to carve their own pumpkins.”

Happy As A Clam

“My Halloween costume in 1992: spaghetti and clam sauce. There’s a big plexiglass fork on the side sticking up. My dad dribbled real clam juice all over me so no one would get too close at the middle school dance.”

Bunny Ears

“As a toddler, my parents dressed me up as a Playboy Bunny for Halloween (Note the fake boobs and cuff links). To put it into perspective, I’m dressing my toddler up as an avocado for Halloween this year. The ‘80s were a weird time, man.”

Pumpkin Spice

“We were taking our daughter to her first pumpkin patch and they had a little photoshoot set up that anyone could use. So we tried it and my brother was the ‘photographer’ since my daughter wasn’t cooperating he took a bunch of pictures just hoping for a good one! I think he nailed it! None of us were looking at the camera and my daughter wasn’t happy about any of it!”

Our Little Pumpkin

“My 3 year old was very unhappy about his first preschool field trip even though it was to a fun pumpkin patch. He scowled at everyone and everything the entire time and was even madder after I coerced him to getting behind this pumpkin cut-out to take this picture… if looks could kill, I would have been dead immediately after taking this photo!”

Little Red Riding Nope

“Our youngest daughter, (Little Red Riding Hood), was none-too-pleased about taking a Halloween portrait. Hence the frown of all frowns.”
