“I recently found this old cheerleading photo taken in high school. I don’t know what the photographer was thinking with the placement of the megaphone and pom-poms.”

Window Watchers

“While I was having a photo shoot, my mother decided it would be totally acceptable to have the photographer take photos of her and my brother creepin’ through the weird window in this photo. As you can tell, I was pissed and didn’t want to have anything to do with this picture. This picture has been making me, family and friends laugh since 1995! Thanks Madre!”

MMMBop Photo Op

“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.”

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.”

Dialed In

“1986 Senior Pictures. So much to unpack here. The phone, the boots, the ornamental side clip in the very bottle blonde hair…”
