“Supposed to be professional photos, but the guy just set up a log and his assistant held up a fake branch (whose hand is in the frame) between my sister Suzy and I (I’m on the right).”

“We shelled out the bucks to stay at this lovely lakeside resort in McCall, Idaho. The hope was to capture a scenic and memorable photo for our annual holiday/Christmas card. ‘Memorable’ is what we ended up with because we dared to suggest our two year old say ‘cheeeeeeze’ for the photo.”

“Not sure how to describe this one. I think he got ahold of my morning coffee.”

“This picture is of my little sister Noelle and me. This was from sometime in 1996. The fact that I was nine years old is my only excuse for my extraordinary bad outfit.
I loved playing with my baby sister. I am 9 years older than her, so I was able to be more interactive with her as a baby than I had been with my other younger siblings. So I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane.’ The following conversation occurred between my mom and I, moments before this photo was taken:
Mom: Rachel, she just ate, you probably shouldn’t do that.
Rachel: No, she burped she will be fine.
Mom: It really isn’t a good idea.
Rachel: But she is having so much fun.
*Noelle proceeds to spit up all over Rachel’s face*
Rachel: AHHHHHHH! MOM I NEED A TOWEL!
*Mom runs and grabs a camera*
Mom: Told ya.
One of the best examples ever of ‘Mommy Knows Best.'”

“My great idea of giving a dad a surprise portrait of his wife and children didn’t go so well. Oldest son seems depressed and in an urgent need of a restroom. Youngest son is trying to kill the photographer with his glare or is just ticked off about the awful clothes color combination. Middle son trying to give some one in the room the eye. Mother obvious and thinks picture will be great.”
