Family Portrait

Hot Tub Greetings

“My parents just got a hot tub and were very excited about it. Therefore, my grandma hired a professional photographer to take a family photo in the hot tub. For some reason they posed with wine and candles even though the children were not old enough to drink… and sent it out to 150 plus friends as a Christmas card.”

Give Me A Sign

“For the family Christmas photo, everyone had to make a sign with their relationship status. I’m single, so this was my sign.”

Like A Hawk

“This is a family photo clearly taken in the 80s. I’m the boy in the stylish green pants in the middle. Here’s what my mom said about the pants: ‘I remember thinking that you shouldn’t have green pants (since it was a bit unusual). But you held your ground. Smart. And daring. They’re super good looking!’

I’m sure all 3 of us kids had just been at the hairdresser. I could never do that hairdo myself, no matter how hard I tried, but since I loved it so much I always requested it when going to the hairdresser. And then proceeded to keep it for as many days as I could. Half-way through the week it would start coming down on the sides and I think it looked less like awesome-80s-do and more like halfway-mohawk-do.”

The Lie Down

“We attempted to get a family photo with my grandparents and all the grandkids. Charlie was not being too cooperative. There’s always one in the family!”

The Adam And Eve-Style Portrait

“When my parents were getting their portraits taken, the photographer had an idea. My Mom wore a tube top and my Dad took his shirt off! The photographer even entered this in a photography contest and won. He gave them a copy of the photo for posing for him, but what he truly gave us is an amazing captured moment that made me wonder if this is what married life is like. I saw this picture every day hanging up in their bedroom.”

Rocket Launcher

“This was taken on a beach in Connecticut. My photographer was screaming and we had no idea why. Then she showed me the picture!”

The Resistance

“This is a picture of my son when he was two. We could not get him to sit or stand still. He finally bent over the prop and this was as still as he got.”

Daddy Long Legs
