Hanging Out

“Not sure why my parents thought it was a good idea to hang stuffed animals on my wall. At night, in the shadows, they were terrifying.”

Directory Assistance

“Our 2002 church directory family photo. I just told my parents I submitted the photo to AFP and they both said, “I don’t think there’s anything awkward about the picture.”

0 For 2

“That’s my hand trying to keep the baby from falling out of the chair while my husband looks down on our toddler to be sure she doesn’t face plant off the back of the table. By far our favorite shot from the kids first photo shoot together.”

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!'”

On A Pedestal

“While I was away at college my family had to take a portrait for a church directory, so they took a framed photo of me. It was the photographer’s great idea to put me on a pedestal. Also, my Dad and brother had been fighting over something trivial, my Mom was annoyed, and my youngest brother habitually refused to smile for any picture.”
