One and Done

“I remember the day this family photo session took place. I refused to smile for any pictures, I can only assume I was upset with my crimped hair disaster. They took about 40 pictures, and this was the best one. We never got family photos done again.”

The Kids are Alright

“This is a photo of me, my brother and mother. All my mom really had to say about it is that we “didn’t like the photographer”. He came every year, and every year our pictures turned out like this.”
