Adventure Time

“My mom thought this picture would be a great surprise for my dad. My little brother looks like a natural bow hunter and my sister apparently enjoy’s bird watching. I got put in the back to catch my pretend fish because my nose is peeling from a very bad sunburn. Our dog isn’t even happy to be in the picture.”

Say Yes To The Vest

“On family picture day, we were made to wear these homemade vests with prints of Scottish terriers on them. But what the camera doesn’t capture is the shame we felt when we put them on. Unable to look each other in the eye, we bore our humiliation with silent equanimity. The dogs and the baby weren’t having it either.”

The Cat’s Pajamas

“We just got married, and had no kids or pets yet… just this cat skeleton, “Bones”. We decided to take him with us to our first family portrait. He was later sold on eBay to a theater company who used him as a prop in a play.”

Dog Mob

“We were at a friend’s barbecue, and their puppies cornered me and attacked. Not the first time my mother took a picture instead of helping, and not the last time either.”
