It’s A Hard Knock Life

“I was 6 years old.  My mother was obsessed with me being Annie because I had curly hair.  So, she fluffed it up, bought me a red dress and a stuffed dog and had my picture taken.  I can’t sing, I can’t dance and had no interest in theater.  Hopefully, the photo was enough for her dream.”

Sweaty Santa

“Christmas Eve, 1995; Michoacán, México and it was 40 °C (104 °F). My mom really wanted to get a cute photo of me sitting on Santa’s lap, but I wasn’t having it. So we both posed with this poor sweaty Santa and she actually made the thing into a calendar.”

Mrs. Beasley And Me

“A photographer came to our house to do family portraits and then some of just me. He thought it would be cute to tape my Mrs. Beasley doll to my back, so she could read over my shoulder. Not creepy at all.”

Mum’s Moment

“As dad lines up the shot, Mum, who’s dolled up for a rare night out, makes sure my kid brother doesn’t ruin her photo op.”

“This is my brother with his two oldest kids on a roller coaster…one has turned into SpongeBob (what is with his eyes?!) and the other one is having trouble keeping his face on his face.”

The Collector

“Third grade school photo day. I collected Beanie Babies pretty obsessively at the time and thought I should show off that hobby by bringing my favorites. The one on my shoulder was my #1.”

Sesame Ave

“I think this was around ’92 or ’93. My mom worked at a nursing home and these Sesame Street characters were there for the day (???). Can you tell me how to get, how to get to…never mind.”

Dummy Love

“What started as a joke Father’s Day gift picked up from a yard sale became our daughter’s best friend. She strolls him around in her baby stroller, sleeps next to him every night and insists he be tucked in with her.”
