Family Portrait

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.”

Matching Hickeys

MS Paint

“This is a picture of me (in the front) and my family. It was originally taken without my dad, as he was always off being a pilot somewhere. My parents were having problems at the time, and so, in wanting a complete family photo, my mother added my dad – cut out from another picture – to it. In that one, his head was 3x larger than ours, facing the wrong way, and his shirt had been marked in with a sharpie marker. When my parents stopped having problems, she changed the photo of him to the one now there. This was also the time that my mom discovered MS Paint. She thought my sister was being disrespectful by wearing an Arachnophobia shirt, so using her paint skills, she whited it out. She printed this gem and put it up in our family home, where it remained on the wall for over ten years.”

Clowning Around

“This is a pic of my husband and his family. My mother in law is obsessed with clowns. Her house is covered in them. This year they were even included in the family pic.”

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.”

Hangtime

“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.”
