“I was not happy that I had to wear a dress. My little sister was busy picking her nose, and little brother was just plain not a happy camper.”

The Clothing Optional Family Portrait

“This is a photo of my family.  There’s plenty going on in this, but the best part is that the photographer positioned me, in a shoulder-baring black shirt behind my black haired mother… immortalizing me on my parent’s wall as the weird naked girl photobombing this family picture.”

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.”

Denim Blues

“I HATED what my mom made me wear. I also hated this stupid pose the photographer made us do. I was told to “look like your scolding your sister” it translated to “look like your checking your sister out.”

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.”
