Photos

Buzzed

“When I was growing up, my dad was an amateur beekeeper.  When a large swarm appeared in our backyard, Dad posed the neighbor Kenny and me (age 4) in front of it, for perspective I suppose.  Those are finger puppets on my hands.  We have other photos where we are standing even closer, but those didn’t come out as well.”

Bear Lake

“A very short-lived photo studio opened at the mall near our house and my brother and I begged for months to get our family photo taken there.  Finally, our parents relented and  our family spent a glorious evening trying a variety of poses and costumes before selecting this gem.  The real highlight came with people’s reactions to the photo after we had it framed and placed over the fireplace.  Because this was before the advent of Photoshop, a lot of people ACTUALLY BELIEVED THAT THIS HAD HAPPENED…even one of my brother’s girlfriends.”

Wrong Said Fred

“This was taken on vacation in Bulgaria in 2003. Fred creeped me out, but my grandma forced me to take a picture with him.”

The Flute Split

“I distinctly remember the envy I felt when the family photographer suggested a solo series of my sister doing the splits and playing the flute, neither of which I could do. I did have a matching American flag sailor outfit, however.”

Daddy Day Care

“This picture is of my dad and I. Let’s just say that this picture looks like his supervision skills are a little impaired. :)”

Blown Away

“My parents took us to Olan Mills for some family photos. My brother was just trying to not get buried in our massive hair.”
