School Photos

Pixie Pics

“I was obsessed with pixy sticks in high school and decided to showcase my favorite candy for my school photo. I literally always had them on me and the sugar high got me through those crazy days.

As If

“It was bring your favorite thing to school picture day at our tiny middle school in Virginia. I, being a 14-year-old girl, loved being on the phone. It made perfect sense to me to bring along my totally awesome clear phone with me. I had my shades and my ridiculous bangs, and I was ready for my close-up. Too cool for school!”

Smells Like Tween Spirit

“I have no explanation for this photo. Nor for my somewhat over-sized Kurt Cobain t-shirt, or why I’m the oldest child in the room. The other kids look a little scared. Very odd.”

Bang Bang

“I cut my best friend’s bangs in fourth grade, right before picture day. Miraculously, we’re still friends.”

“I rocked the Wilson Phillips short bowl haircut for awhile, but that wasn’t enough to express myself. So, I permed it. This is my third grade school picture. I have no idea why there are fireworks.”

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!!!”

Just Dew It

“This is me on the right with one of my best friends and this was for my senior pictures, class of 2005. We just loved Mountain Dew & couldn’t get enough of it!”
