Mom & Dad

The Birthday Girl

“This was taken for my mom’s December birthday — notice the weird birthday cake with Christmas trees on it. She looks thrilled. One hand with a death grip on my brother (who thought he was the ultimate warrior from WWE) and the other with a cigarette to take the edge off.”

Floracular Spectacular

“My parents were married in 1981 and my mom wanted a picture of her looking down at her bouquet with a double-exposure of my dad’s head floating above her like she was thinking of him. Mom cried when she saw the resulting photo, but we all laugh over it now.”

Meet The Mullets

“This is a photo of my parents and I when I was about two years old. My hair grew in as a mullet and both of my parents had them as well. All my friends die laughing and think it’s fake when I show it to them.”

The Everyday Clown

“As a child, I would dress up as a clown whenever there was a reason to celebrate – in this case the birth of my younger brother.”

Fists Of Fury

“Palestine, Arkansas, early 90s. I got bullied a lot and when I asked my dad to teach me to defend myself he suggested we take Taekwondo together as a family. Our instructor told us the major appeal of taekwondo as a martial art was the “Intimidation Factor.” I think we pulled it off in this photo.”

The Silhouette

“My mom and dad in the late 80s. Apparently it was considered cutting edge to put your picture inside a silhouette of your son.”

“Here’s a picture of my folks in 1981, captured a few weeks after having my older sister – they look thrilled.”
