“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 ;)”

Chick Music

“My youngest brother refused to be in the photo for our church telephone book unless he could wear his cowboy suit. The accordion followed. Then came the chicken.

Left Behind

“This is my husband and four children, we asked the kids to sit down with dad to get their pictures together, well Ruby did not want to be in the picture-so we said okay walk over there, by then I started to take the picture she got even more upset for leaving her out of the picture.

Drawn Together

“This is a picture of myself (Archie shirt) and my family. It was originally taken without my Dad, as my dad was always off being a pilot somewhere. My parents were having problems at the time, and so, in wanting a complete family photo, my mother added my dad – cut out from another picture – to it. I wish I had a copy of that one, because his head was 3x larger than ours, facing the wrong way, and his shirt had been marked in with a sharpie marker. When my parents stopped having problems, she changed the photo of him to the one now there. This was also at the time that she discovered MSPaint. She decided she thought my sister was being disrespectful by wearing an Arachnophobia shirt, so she painted it out with white.”

Problem Child

“Taken in 1997, this is a picture of my mother, grandmother, my older sister and myself. I’d have to say the black velvet gloves with Dalmatian print trim really completes my classy ensemble, and the pink diva shades add a touch of mystery. Obviously, I was a little diva.”
