A Going Concern

“I’m in the middle with my brother and sister. And I’ve peed in my pants.”

Roller Derby

“This is peak 1980s, family portraiture, on skates. I’m the one providing the flourish, as the caboose on the end.”

No Way Out

“Not sure what the photographer said to inspire the smile through the pained expressions on all of us, but Dad is clearly looking for a way out.”

Stardate 1990

“This is a family photo from the 90s. We had coordinated Halloween costumes and my parents decided to get a professional photo taken of it for some reason. I’m in the yellow costume which I hated because I wanted blue or red. And yes, we watched a lot of Star Trek.”

The Tan-Trum

“We attempted to get a family photo with my grandparents and all the grandkids. Charlie was not being too cooperative.”

Man Down

“These are my three boys and this was a professional shoot as a gift for my in-laws. The photographer was very swift, but not fast enough for my youngest son. I love this gem but my mother-in-law hated its imperfection.”

“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.”

Roller Girl

“I found this photo of my parents and I and I now see where my daughters inherited their wonderful ability to roll their eyes at me.”

Top Dog

“This photo is of my father-in-law, his sister, and their dog when they were kids. The dog was very loved by their mother and she thought it needed to be included in the background of her children. She loved the dog so much that he is even covering up part of her son.”
