Mom

Break Point

“This is my birthday party (I’m the one blowing up the red balloon) in the mid 70s at the McDonalds in Richmond, BC. My mom looks like she’s had enough.”

Make Yourself Comfortable

“This is my mother, my sister and me posing for our annual Christmas picture in a Walmart in Louisiana circa 2008. Please note the matching Banana Republic sweaters that were purchased on clearance and no, those aren’t spray tans. It was just very hot in the studio.”

Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner

“There was a WWE show at Penn State back in 1995, and this cutout was part of the promotion. My husband worked there so we got to bring home The Undertaker to the delight of our two oldest kids and the confusion of our youngest.”

Hump Day

“My husband was taking pictures of us while our dogs ran around in the backyard. As I held our son, my husband kept saying, “Now that’s a good one!” I instantly knew what was going on, but it was too late. Our little border collie has a problem with humping our Great Pyrenees, so it wasn’t a shock to us. It just made for an awkward family photo.”

The Grand Banana

“Family vacation around 1974. We drove all the way to California with my father taking dozens of rolls of film. By the time we did a swing by the Grand Canyon, we were all tired. We got out of the car and this is the sole photo my father snapped of us. We spent about 3 minutes there. Long enough for my mom to finish that banana.'”

Leg Man

“Dad was sure the church photo would only be taken from the waist up.”

Clown Town

“Here’s a picture of me that my mom took after giving me a new toy. Not sure why I don’t like clowns now. Philadelphia, 1970.”

We’ll Always Have Paris

“My son and I went to Paris for the weekend. He wanted to run and chase the pigeons but I wanted him to take a photo and he started having a tantrum and hit me in the face with his head.”
