Family Portrait

0 For 2

“That’s my hand trying to keep the baby from falling out of the chair while my husband looks down on our toddler to be sure she doesn’t face plant off the back of the table. By far our favorite shot from the kids first photo shoot together.”

Nana In The Middle

“Here’s our extra 90s family pic. I remember being very upset my shoes were dirty but my Mom said it’s not about my shoes, it’s about the denim. And that’s good ole nana in the middle.”

“My family in the basement of a local hotel for a special deal on a family photo. This is the actual printed version that they were given.”

Sports Illustrated

“Family photo circa 1993. My mother spared no expense on her new track suit. Funny thing is, we all hate sports.”

In Your Face

“This is our first family portrait. A friend thought it was staged but not at all. After about 10 minutes of taking pictures it was getting pretty hard to wrangle my son. I actually love this photo the most because it really captures the family dynamic well.”

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.”

Dapper In Denim

“A glorious photo of my partner and his family in 2002 at a church in Gurnee, IL. The reason why all are wearing denim seems to be lost to time.”

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.”

Purple Haze

“One day, back in ’81 or so, MawMaw thought it would be a good idea for us to all enjoy a few glasses of her fermented ‘friendship punch’ before heading down to the photo studio at K-Mart.”

Waiting To Exhale

“1978. I was sporting a Jimmy Connors haircut. I’ve filled out just a bit since then…”
