School Photos

The Queen Of Dew

“When I was a senior in high school, I was obsessed with Mountain Dew. I would have like six a day, any size. There was never a time one was not in my hand. So for my senior photos, I thought it was going to be a great idea to make a throne of Mountain Dew to sit on. I went out the morning of my photos and bought six 24-packs to build my throne. It took me a few weeks to get through all of it. It’s hilarious now because I don’t drink Mountain Dew anymore.”

Background Energy

“1991 was a wild time to be alive. I may not have had any control over how my mother styled those bangs but I did have control over that sweet, sweet portrait background choice. Also, I’m not sure what’s going on with my teeth.”

The Bee’s Knees

“1984, Green Bay, WI. I was in 4th grade and my Mom had decided to give me a home perm. That sweater with the embroidered bee & turtleneck was my signature outfit. And I was certain I looked awesome that day.”

The BFV

“My son really loves vacuums. Reeeeeeeally loves them. On preschool picture day, he was so miserable, and was offered the preschool’s vacuum cleaner to play with to cheer him up before his photo. When I picked him up, I was told that I “might see a bit of the vacuum in the photo.”

Higher Ground

“This is my oldest brother. When he came to the States , his first obsession was rock & roll, followed by big hair.”

Roses

“This is a school photo of my older sister from 1988. The monstrosity upon her head is reflected in her expression. The lasers in the background and applique-roses sweatshirt only add to the epic-ness.

Bass Bros

“This was my 6 Year Old T-Ball picture. Our sponsor was “Bass Bros.” but as you can see…the B got covered up.”

Blinding Lights

“Our school had mid year friend group pics called ‘highlights.’ The highlight was a Venetian blind that had a color light behind you and you could choose your groups color. My sister and I were not popular so we decided to do the pic together because the colored Venetian backdrop was the coolest ever. Our brother was in basic training in the army at this time so we were EXTRA patriotic as a family and the Gulf War was happening. I left the house with the most epic bang curl your life has ever seen. I was 100% sure people would be passing notes about how I should pursue a career in cosmetology. We chose RED for our Venetian color because WE ARE FIRE. They hand the pics back in class weeks later and MY HEART SANK. It sank because the glorious bangs I had worked a full hour on and half a can of Aquanet had called flat on one side and captured my worst hair moment.”
