Family Portrait

Adventure Time

“My mom thought this picture would be a great surprise for my dad. My little brother looks like a natural bow hunter and my sister apparently enjoy’s bird watching. I got put in the back to catch my pretend fish because my nose is peeling from a very bad sunburn. Our dog isn’t even happy to be in the picture.”

Four Hands, Five Heads

“This is a photo of my aunt, uncle, and cousins. They all look fabulous but the photo always looked like a family of mimes to me.”

Angels In The Food Court

“It was family day at the mall and my brother and I were blindsided by this awful scheme. My mother stopped right in front of one of those kiosks where you dress up your kids in mortifying costumes and take pictures of them and of course my Mom was all for it. Our faces are not the happiest, but the best part is my Shih-Tzu hair.  Thanks Mom.”

Heads Up

“My Mother got a great deal on this family portrait, mainly because it wasn’t meant to be for a family THIS size. But we were all together, so she was determined to make it work.”

Suspension Of Disbelief

“This is a picture of me (the little girl), my brother, and my parents. Yes, my brother is wearing acid washed jeans held up by red suspenders. Yes, my father is rockin’ the pencil ‘stache. Yes, I have the ‘I need an adult’ face. I’m not sure what concerns me more – what my parents are doing to my brother or my brother’s enjoyment of it.”

Gray Area

“There was a camera malfunction and we didn’t know it captured these candid shots of our happy family…This became my favorite example of trying to get a good annual family photo!”

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.”
