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.”

Wear & Stare

“Glamour shots at Zellers in the mid nineties. My sister kept blinking when they took the photo so they told her to keep her eyes open.”

Spirit Of ’76

“Me and my two sisters at an Olan Mills studio in Stone Mountain, Georgia in 1976. My mom was trying to get a surprise photo for a Christmas gift for my dad. I think there was a better option, but this was the one they went with. Obviously, we all chose outfits to match our personal style.”

The American Hustle

“My mom forced my brother and I to take ‘Modern Dance’ classes in the early 90s in Brooklyn. I am the one with glasses and I was not as happy as I look.”

The B Sides

“My sister found these in reject pile from a childhood photo shoot, but we think these should really have been chosen for the living room wall.”

“This is a photo of my dad (far right) and his three brothers. I guess the photographer couldn’t find a larger prop to set them on, and instead had them straddle and squeeze in.”
