Family Portrait

Daughter Brawl

“This pretty much sums up my childhood. I’m the blond on the left burying my head in my sister’s lap while she gets in a cheap shot. The youngest is fish-hooking my other sister while my mother looks on and laughs. My father is letting everyone know what his future looks like with four daughters like these.”

Here’s Looking At You, Kid

“This photo was one pose in a series of shots my family had taken in about 1981. The photographer told the rest of my family to just stare at me while I tried to look dignified.”

Side Eye

“Over 60 years ago, my parents had a picture done professionally of my two older sisters and me. This was one of the ‘proofs’ they received. My two older sisters have now passed. I showed this to a friend who sent me one of your cards and suggested I send this to you. My middle sister had no idea why she had the ‘sideways’ eyes, but it has brought a lot of humor to our family for many years.”

Focus

“For our first family portrait, the photographer told my younger sister to make sure not to blink and to smile nice and big. All of the pictures came out like this.”
