Family Portrait


“The year was 1992 or 93, the place Olan Mills. I’m the one with glasses, braces and the mushroom cut. My sister and I were wearing matching dresses my grandmother made. There is so much going on in this picture, I don’t even know where to start…It’s cringeworthy all around!”

Jesse’s Protest

“My Mom bought a family portrait for a school fundraiser.  My little brother, Jesse, refused to cooperate, so finally my Mom told him he could just turn around.  Sixteen-year-old me is in the tie-dye, wishing this was not my family.”

“I don’t know what’s worse: our eighties hair, glasses, or outfits.”

“My dad Larry opened one of the first cell phone stores in Houston Texas and was known as “the cell phone kingpin.” I wish you could have seen the commercial that ran with him on a unicycle.”

The Stand-In

“This is my Dad’s family in 1991 and the photo was hanging in my grandma’s house for years with the caption written underneath. Oh the things you did before Photoshop.”

“We were standing waiting for the pictures to be taking – all of us doing whatever. My husband was taking the pictures and he was testing the shot. Could not have posed this one if we tried.”

Four Hands, Five Heads

“This is a photo of my aunt, uncle, and cousins. They all look fabulous but the photo always looked like a family of mimes to me.”

You Can’t Even Tell

“Our Christmas card in 2007. Our daughter was photoshopped in, as she was in Peru.”
