Gray Area

Mood Piece

“My mother wanted to have a nice portrait with her three daughters. This was approximately 1996. My older sister in the Kimono style dress is obviously annoyed. I’m standing, with terrible posture, staring down the photographer with dagger eyes. My younger sister is making a fish face. We are know for taking some crazy pictures, but I think this was a candid moment we continue to cherish.”

Say Yes To The Vest

“On family picture day, we were made to wear these homemade vests with prints of Scottish terriers on them. But what the camera doesn’t capture is the shame we felt when we put them on. Unable to look each other in the eye, we bore our humiliation with silent equanimity. The dogs and the baby weren’t having it either.”

“Visiting my Grandfather’s grave in 1997. I’m the one looking in the camera, hoping my Mother’s clown gene is recessive.”

The Lie Down

“We attempted to get a family photo with my grandparents and all the grandkids. Charlie was not being too cooperative. There’s always one in the family!”
