Mom

Flower Power

“I thought it would be fun for me to make matching outfits for my mom and my daughter and I. It was the 60s and these very large flower prints were very popular. I was so proud of my sewing abilities and my fake hair!”

Hair Me Downs

“My mom (right) did my hair as a child and I believe I was subjected to hairspray poisoning which led me down a road of bad choices in picking men. It’s been like wearing hairspray beer goggles for 23 years.”

“My mother, Pam, prided herself on always keeping in style with her office wear. Here is 1992 Power Suit Pam.”

Holy Roller

“I hated taking pictures when I was little, especially ones where we had to dress up. I told my mom I was done and she didn’t believe me. I didn’t mean to make this face. It just sort of happened on its own. So this is the Christmas card she got.”

Big Stick

“This was at a company picnic. A friend snapped this picture of my daughter and I. It wasn’t til I got home that I realized that a friend’s kid was holding a rather large stick in the background.”

Mother

“This is photo of my family (Me as a baby in the middle). My parents don’t remember the picture and I have no way how to explain the picture, but seriously my mom is not that scary.”

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

“We were in Boston and all I wanted was a NICE picture of me with my kids in front of this statue at Fenway. Instead, I got this.”

Window Watchers

“While I was having a photo shoot, my mother decided it would be totally acceptable to have the photographer take photos of her and my brother creepin’ through the weird window in this photo. As you can tell, I was pissed and didn’t want to have anything to do with this picture. This picture has been making me, family and friends laugh since 1995! Thanks Madre!”

It’s A Hard Knock Life

“I was 6 years old.  My mother was obsessed with me being Annie because I had curly hair.  So, she fluffed it up, bought me a red dress and a stuffed dog and had my picture taken.  I can’t sing, I can’t dance and had no interest in theater.  Hopefully, the photo was enough for her dream.”

Mum’s Moment

“As dad lines up the shot, Mum, who’s dolled up for a rare night out, makes sure my kid brother doesn’t ruin her photo op.”
