The Clothing Optional Family Portrait

“This is a photo of my family.  There’s plenty going on in this, but the best part is that the photographer positioned me, in a shoulder-baring black shirt behind my black haired mother… immortalizing me on my parent’s wall as the weird naked girl photobombing this family picture.”

Denim Blues

“I HATED what my mom made me wear. I also hated this stupid pose the photographer made us do. I was told to “look like your scolding your sister” it translated to “look like your checking your sister out.”

Give Me A Sign

Junkyard

“This is a photo of my family and I after our town flooded in 2002. After cleaning everything from the basement, Dad insisted we take a family picture.”

Like A Hawk

“This is a family photo clearly taken in the 80s. I’m the boy in the stylish green pants in the middle. Here’s what my mom said about the pants: ‘I remember thinking that you shouldn’t have green pants (since it was a bit unusual). But you held your ground. Smart. And daring. They’re super good looking!’

I’m sure all 3 of us kids had just been at the hairdresser. I could never do that hairdo myself, no matter how hard I tried, but since I loved it so much I always requested it when going to the hairdresser. And then proceeded to keep it for as many days as I could. Half-way through the week it would start coming down on the sides and I think it looked less like awesome-80s-do and more like halfway-mohawk-do.”
