School Photos

Bead It

“This picture was taken in kindergarten in the post Soviet 90s when it was popular to take different kinds of costumed school photoshoots. I came home and showed my mom the photo and she said, ‘Oh honey, why aren’t you smiling?’ I thought I was smiling!”

“This is my pre-school picture.  I had a fit and would not get my picture taken unless I could put my belt on my head.  So my mom did what she had to do.”

Oh, Shirt

“My 14 year old daughter forgot it was school picture day.  Normally would have fixed her hair and dressed nice.  On this day she wore a Nike shirt that said ‘Just Do It.’ Good thing for us, her hair covered the rest of the shirt and left STD!”

“This is me, when I was totally obsessed with Hanson. I was 11 years old and I had to get a special permission note from my mom so I could show off my beloveds in the photograph.”

Man Down

“These are my three boys and this was a professional shoot as a gift for my in-laws. The photographer was very swift, but not fast enough for my youngest son. I love this gem but my mother-in-law hated its imperfection.”

Skater Girl

“This was the gem of my high school senior picture portfolio. At the time, the effect was cutting edge. Now I like to tell my kids that I had to skate really fast to look that dumb.”
