Dazed And Confused

“What’s confusing (echoed by the bewildered looks on our faces) is that *this* is the photo that our parents chose to buy. How bad were the others?

“This picture is of my little sister and me in 1996. I loved playing with my baby sister so I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane’. My mom told me moments before this photo was taken that she just ate and that I probably shouldn’t do that but I told her that she already burped and playing with her will be fine. Mom was right.”

Couch Potatoes: Recreation

“This is me and my two brothers in 1987. We were army brats living in Missouri at the time and my mom was always trying to get good pictures of us to send to our grandparents back home. This one turned out so well that we did a photo recreation for my parents for their 40th anniversary.”

Sweater Party

“The photographer of our mother-daughter portrait session posed my younger sister, on the right, as a late arrival to the matchy-matchy sweater party. And my ever-youthful mother was wise to wear a different color to signify that she was the mom and not a sibling.”
