Clown Funeral

“Visiting my Grandfather’s grave in 1997. I’m the one looking in the camera, hoping my Mother’s clown gene is recessive.”

Little Nibbler

“Tried to take nice family photos and as the photographer said ‘alright, serious faces for this one’ my daughter turned and bit me on the shoulder.”

“The kids were having a shoot for our Christmas card and we had no idea why the photographer stopped shooting and fell to the ground laughing.”

Worth It

“Our family photo from 1981. I seem annoyed even though I’m wearing my favorite Izod terry cloth shirt. My sister is comforting my grandmother. My Dad and brother seem somewhat pleased. This photo was stored in the original envelope which was marked COD, so we definitely paid for this.”

Overall Success

“This is my family circa 1999. I think we had just bought stock in denim.”

Personal Best

“My family posed for this gem in December 1993. I was 10; my brothers were 8 and 13. My mother loved themed portraits and says now in her defense, ‘Track suits were really hot back then. Everyone wore them. People wore them to work.”

Hot Tub Greetings

“My parents just got a hot tub and were very excited about it. Therefore, my grandma hired a professional photographer to take a family photo in the hot tub. For some reason they posed with wine and candles even though the children were not old enough to drink… and sent it out to 150 plus friends as a Christmas card.”

Public Displays Of Affection

“During our annual holiday family photo shoot, we wanted to recreate a cute one we got the prior year when our son was just a baby. It didn’t quite turn out like we hoped it would….”

Rain Or Shine

“Needless to say we were a family very into soccer and always ready for rainy conditions, even in the photo studio!”
