Family Portrait

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.”

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.”

Nature Called

“My husband and I wanted to take a Christmas family photo with our dog Rylee, but he kept wandering off. When we got home our photographer called us and said, ‘I found where Rylee was.”

The Smile Strain

“The photographer kept telling my son to “smile MORE!” And this was his version of smiling “more.””

I Fold

“This was taken after church one Saturday. My parents look like they don’t want to be there. My Uncle looks like he’s surprised to be there, (which might explain why he’s holding a folder), and me and my brother are just there.”

Take Twenty

“After twenty attempts trying to get everyone to smile, and my sister being afraid of camera flashes, my frustrated father yelled out “Just take the damn picture!”

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.”

The Dress Code

“My husband is the one in the snazzy suit getting ready for a school dance surrounded by his family.”

Farm Team

“Mom and dad always wanted a farm but they went corporate instead so we were forced into these outfits for Halloween until we were 10.”
