Family Portrait

Helping Hands

“This is me and my back then 3, 2 and almost 1 year old.. my dear neighbor who was a studio photographer offered to take a a pic of us.. that was as good as she could do.. awkward but I LOVE the picture.. it’s sooo how I felt and how my life was.. (not that I needed a picture to remember that time in my life.. ;))”

And Then There Were Six

“This family photo hung in my Pop and Gram’s house for years. To say they didn’t like my aunt’s ex-husband may have been an understatement.”

Cheaper By The Dozen

“This is a family photo circa 1997, of my grandmother and her grandchildren, (including me, the girl on the right in the pink dress and awful knockoff of the ‘Rachel’ haircut.)  Clearly, all of us in the photo are a hot mess, considering not ONE person is looking at the camera, and most of the small children look as if they were subjected to the clown from the movie It, right before the picture was taken.”

Who’s That Girl?

“Our family church photo in 1986. I don’t know why everyone is looking at me. I swear I’m posing exactly the way the photographer asked.”

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.”

Directory Assistance

“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.”

Church Casual

“Oh the 90s. A time when it was okay to wear a bandanna and T-shirt in the church directory picture.”
