School Photos

Bang Time

“So this was taken in 1988 for my kindergarten picture day. My mom hand picked this shirt/tie combo but I’m not sure of the story behind my hair.”

Reflections

“I took my 2002 Senior Year with my bird, Jeff. It made the yearbook. Ten years later, I caught him reflecting on our long history. Sentimentality in its truest form.”

Bummer

“My Mom let me pick out my clothes for picture day. I even took a pair of her earrings to tie together my all red outfit. I wasn’t thinking when I picked my shirt. The camera cut off at the exact wrong point.”

Air Junior

“This is my little brother’s fourth grade class photo. Our elementary school decided to change things up a bit for picture day that year… and well, this was the result.”

Pin Head

“This is my senior photo from 1992. The juggling clubs were my idea. Unfortunately my parents supported the idea.”

Wade In The Water

“This is the result of me getting the lead in a play. I had to stand in a blow-up swimming pool on stage in a swimsuit while a group of kids sang ‘She waded in the water’ behind me. The grand finale was me getting my swim suit wet. Definitely awkward back then, but kind of creepy now.”

Sugar Grills

“Classic sugar grill.  Story goes that I chewed on my bottle so much that it ruined my teeth. My neighbors used to chase me around the yard with pliers saying they were going to rip out my teeth and sell the silver.”

PMS

“Junior High is hard enough without your mother buying you a bright red monogram sweater like this.”

Dialed In

“1986 Senior Pictures. So much to unpack here. The phone, the boots, the ornamental side clip in the very bottle blonde hair…”

Denim On Denim

This is me in 1997/98 school photo, the mushroom cut with the Canadian tuxedo picture has followed me ever since.
