Kids

The Freebie

“My buddy Josh and his older sister and brother when they were little guys. Apparently when the photographer saw all the prints from the photo shoot, he gave this one to his mom for free because it’s just so hilarious. He would hide it from me when I went to his house because I would cry from laughing at it so much.”

Tiger Twins

“I’m not sure what’s more awkward. The matching tiger print overalls my grandmother made us…or the expressions on my grandma and cousin’s face from all of my protesting over these photos. This is the best we got.”

Stay Golden

“I used to watch The Golden Girls a lot. When we showed up for pics at Glamor Shots, my mama let me pick one of the outfits. Blanche Devereaux would be so proud.”

Weenie Roast

“Every year on holiday my mum would make me dress up in a fancy dress competition. Here I am in the early 90’s, inside two sleeping bags… dressed as a ‘Hot Dog.’ As you can see I’m a good foot or so higher than the other contestants, making me at least 12 or 13… old enough to feel the utter embarrassment of being dressed as a massive sausage in a bun! It was also swelteringly hot inside.”

Over It

“I’m about 3 in this picture. It was taken for the church directory. From an early age, I was already over it.”

An Overall Success

“My family’s first and last ‘professional’ family photo when I (the baby) was 18 months and I’m now about to turn 21.”

Nightmare On Sesame Street

“This was at my elementary school in Japan in 1991. A bunch of characters from a nearby Sesame Street theme park came one afternoon in 1991 to entertain the kids. My mom took this picture thinking I would be excited to meet Ernie. Clearly I was horrified.”

Cityscape

“This lovely picture of my daughter in an adorable outfit. Didn’t notice the graffiti on the sidewalk behind her.”

Funny Farm

“This was taken on my in-laws property. My father-in-law was a businessman but for some reason he thought he was a farmer too. Apparently he was bad at disciplining his goats.”
