Looking Sharpie

“My son’s senior picture, before which, he inexplicably shaved off one eyebrow. Apparently, the photographer insisted he draw it back on for the photo.”

The Rub

“This is my husband when he was 6 or 7. His grandma sent him to school on PICTURE DAY in this shirt. You can’t see the bottom, but the shirt actually says ‘Rub it easy, make it hard.’ No joke. His grandma obviously was clueless. Needless to say, he didn’t wear it to school again.”

“My nephew’s first picture day. He tried so hard to have the perfect smile. Instead he looks like he has dead bodies in his freezer.”

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!”
