Gearheads

“Who makes three siblings commemorate their headgear wearing days? My mom, that’s who! What teenagers agree to have a professional picture taken in said headgears?! My crazy family! Embracing the weird!”

“Yeah, this is supposed to be a family photo, but let’s be honest: the real star is my brother’s ginormous, outrageously over-teased hair.”

Spirit Of ’76

“Me and my two sisters at an Olan Mills studio in Stone Mountain, Georgia in 1976. My mom was trying to get a surprise photo for a Christmas gift for my dad. I think there was a better option, but this was the one they went with. Obviously, we all chose outfits to match our personal style.”
