School Photos

Upside Down

“We had taken our son to Sears for a photo session. We received the proofs and ordered prints, not realizing that his middle finger was proudly displayed in the photo.  It wasn’t until years later we noticed it.”

Urban Cowboy

“This was one of my most awkward years, early 80’s when Urban Cowboy was blowing up at the box office.  My school decided that spring photos would be exactly that. Well I am not sure if that was the greatest of ideas, but its given my family, facebook and now hopefully AFP plenty more laughs!!!”

It’s A Hard Knock Life

“I was 6 years old.  My mother was obsessed with me being Annie because I had curly hair.  So, she fluffed it up, bought me a red dress and a stuffed dog and had my picture taken.  I can’t sing, I can’t dance and had no interest in theater.  Hopefully, the photo was enough for her dream.”

Beltboy

“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.”

Your Dress is Calling

“This is a photo of me – my friends thought this was worth sharing with the site as I’ve become infamous for the phone dress. I don’t know what my mother was thinking, but I think it was, “One day, my daughter’s friends are really going to enjoy making fun of this.”
