Phoning It In

“This is a photo of my whole family. My uncle was away on a hunting trip, so my aunt gave the photographer a picture of him so he could just ‘blend him in’ to the background. Clearly this man was a professional!”

The Stand-In

“This is my Dad’s family in 1991 and the photo was hanging in my grandma’s house for years with the caption written underneath. Oh the things you did before Photoshop.”

Louder By The Dozen

“My sisters and I thought we’d get our kids together for a cute picture to give to our parents. This was the best picture we got because at least one kid was smiling, as oblivious as she was.”

Checkmate

“This is me wetting my pants while my father plays chess with my godmothers husband.”

Total Princess Move

“It was 1999. My grandparents were visiting from Texas and brought me and my cousins all matching t-shirts to get professional photos taken. I refused to wear anything but this. It’s hard being the Kim Kardashian of the family.”

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.”
