Kids

Surrender

“Our perfect family photo shoot was only a little hampered by my 2 year old granddaughter who decided to throw a complete fit during the sitting. We gave up trying to get her to look good and let her ‘do her own thing.’ She ended up at the bottom of the stairs and we went on without her…so to speak.”

Break Something

“This is a picture of my breakdancing club. It’s origins are from Bellerose Queens, NY.  It’s the late 1980s when breakdancing was a thing.  If this doesn’t qualify as awkward IDK what does.”

Big Fish

“Just what every kid recovering from an elbow reconstruction wants: a huge promotional fish from Long John Silvers stopping by with a care package of coloring supplies and I can’t remember what else. The early 90s were a strange time.”

Downsized

“My brother and his ex wife separated. Afterwards, we didn’t have a family photo without her that included my son. This was my Opa’s solution: cutting out a photo of my son and pasting it into the family photo that was taken the year before the ex came around.”

Bad To The Bone

“When I was 5 years old in 1995, my Mom took me at a Glamour Shots in North Carolina. I was a ‘pageant baby’ at this time & needed some headshots for an upcoming event so my mother determined that naturally wearing a 10 sizes too big leather jacket and teasing my hair to look like I was auditioning for an 80s hair band was clearly the look for me.”

0 For 2

“That’s my hand trying to keep the baby from falling out of the chair while my husband looks down on our toddler to be sure she doesn’t face plant off the back of the table. By far our favorite shot from the kids first photo shoot together.”

The Wild Life

“When we were kids my mom was a licensed wildlife rehabilitator at our old farm in Illinois. So let the raccoon party commence!”

The Standoff Before Christmas

“Christmas 1996. My mom was clearly done with shenanigans and was making a final plea for me to ‘Just take one nice family picture, darn it!'”

The Inauguration

“My dad was a judge for many years. This was taken at his first inauguration. I was not in the mood for yet another picture and REALLY had to pee. The look on my mom’s face says it all. Through clenched teeth she was probably saying something like, ‘Get your GD hands out of your privates!'”
