Kids

Field of Joy

“This is my husband and four children. We asked the kids to sit down with Dad to get their pictures together, but my daughter didn’t want to be in the picture, so said, “Okay, just stay over there.” I started to take the picture and she got even more upset for being left OUT of the picture. As you can see my husband was also annoyed!”

Stuffed

“This is the way my mother found my sister sleeping. In her pajamas she has a puppet, a stuffed monkey, a stuffed seal, two blankets, and a watch.”

Sonny’s Share

“It was the summer of ‘68 or ‘69 and my mom (holding her cousin) was in Las Vegas with her Aunt and Uncle to babysit their kids while they went to see Sonny and Cher in concert. Sonny and Cher stayed at the same hotel as them (Sahara) and were casually lounging by the pool one afternoon. Sonny obliged for a photo op with my mom and her cousin.”

The Bee’s Knees

“1984, Green Bay, WI. I was in 4th grade and my Mom had decided to give me a home perm. That sweater with the embroidered bee & turtleneck was my signature outfit. And I was certain I looked awesome that day.”

Dropping The Baton

“I had been excited all day long for my baton recital. My mom had gotten my hair and makeup done and I could not wait to get on stage. However, I did not know there would be pictures involved. When I was presented to the photographer, I was more than pissed. The face you are seeing in this picture is basically me saying ,’Screw you, Mom and Dad.’ And the hell of it all is…the photographer PICKED THIS PICTURE TO PRINT. My parents BOUGHT IT. My parents GAVE COPIES TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS. It will live in infamy on numerous refrigerators, in many photo albums, and now, in all its glory all over the web.”

The Birthday Balloons

My 5th birthday in 1979. My mom is not known for baking or photography skills, as evidenced in this blurry snapshot of my patchy cake. Fire displays and phallic balloon sculptures?”

Corporate Takeover

“I was 11 going on 41. Glamour Shots at their finest. I remember being so proud of my hair while walking around the mall, and everyone looking at be because I was so beautiful. I look like I have two volleyballs on the sides of my head.”

The Everyday Ronald

“I came across this photo in a box in my parents’ garage, of my family and me. And no, it’s not Halloween.”

“As a five year old in Stockholm, Sweden I was in love with Brandon so I made this with a little help from my older sisters (who both loved Dylan).”
