School Photos

Lil Crockett

“My brother would let my mom pick out his hairdos for his entire childhood despite the fact that she used to dress him in sailor suits. This is a result from the 1980s”

Bangin’

“The day before school pictures 1984 my mom was complaining that I wore black too often (all the time). So after making myself beautiful on school picture day I grabbed an old white sweater vest out of her closet and wore it to school. She still was not pleased with my school photos. Wonder why?”

There’s Something About Lottie

“When I was in 6th grade, my two older sisters were popular and had big hair, and I was an awkward kid so I thought I’d be cool for a day. I went to town on the Aquanet hairspray. I used almost half a can to get this Big Bang as tall as I could. The photographer literally had to take a step back to fit my hair in the school photo and i really don’t know how he kept a straight face. I shared this on Instagram once and couldn’t even fit it in the crop.”

Lemonade?

“The year was 1997 and this was the theme for my second grade photos. Just casually selling lemonade & riding my skateboard.”

Cabbages Of Our Lives

“This was my Senior Picture and my mom thought it would be a great idea to pose with some of my Cabbage Patch collection of dolls. For some reason, I decided to go with the SULTRY look. The rest is history as you can see!!!”

Hands On

“My son’s school picture. I don’t know what’s worse, his expression, or the hand creeping in behind him. Needless to say, retakes were done.”

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.”

Rainbow Of Despair

“I was told my son was not cooperating on school picture day so I assumed he just didn’t get his photos taken. Lo and Behold I walk into these gems this morning. Now which one to choose for this year’s holiday card?”

Every Picture Tells A Story

“Normally my son takes great school pictures. This year he did not deliver. Needless to say we did not purchase the pictures.”
