Mom & Dad

Yellow Fever

“This is what happens when you sneeze during an Olan Mills Christmas picture session. And yes, my parents still used this as our Christmas card. And I have no explanation for the color scheme.”

Wreath Hair

“This photo was in 2016 of my husband and I with our son for his homecoming dance. I posted this on my social media and so many people were trying to figure out what I did to my hair and I had no idea why. I finally realized I had ‘wreath hair.'”

Brotherly Love

“This pretty much sums up life with boys. My wife and I couldn’t get through one photo shoot for the fam without them beating the crap out of each other.”

Show & Tell

“Bring Your Parents to School Day in kindergarten 1990. Apparently, I wasn’t so pleased about who I brought.”

First Family

“When my parents were getting their portraits taken, the photographer had an idea. My Mom wore a tube top and my Dad took his shirt off! The photographer even entered this in a photography contest and won. He gave them a copy of the photo for posing for him, but what he truly gave us is an amazing captured moment that made me wonder if this is what married life is like. I saw this picture every day hanging up in their bedroom.”

Fall Fashion

“2013, American Fork, Utah. My mother in law wanted a huge family photo. For some reason she put us all in ugly bright colored sweaters in the middle of the summer (90 something degrees) and wanted us all to stand in random spots on the steps and smile. I was on camera duty and so I pushed the timer and hauled it back to my spot but wiped out just as the photo was snapped.”

Check Marks The Spot

“I’m the redhead and my older sister had the idea to get my parents a photo of us for their anniversary and it was the photographer’s idea for us to dress similarly.”

The Standoff Before Christmas

“Christmas 1996. My mom was clearly done with shenanigans and was making a final plea for me to ‘Just take one nice family picture, darn it!'”

Clown Show

“My wife and her siblings circa 1995. My mother in law made clown costumes and made them have a photo shoot.”
