“My mom’s family, 1963. My mom and aunt are the little girls in front row. We’re all very confused as to why the chair is the focal point of the picture. Apparently my mom’s grandmother, who took the photo, always took pictures where the people were not centered or heads were cut off. Otherwise it’s just a typical 1960s Christmas picture!”

“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!”

“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.”

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

“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.”

“I don’t know what’s more awesome. The family perm, my dad’s Tom Selleck ‘stache, or my sister looking like Leif Garrett.”

“When your amazing artist Dad says you’re taking a family photo and his photographer friend is going to shoot it, you do it with no question. Oh, and Dad wants it to be unique so it will be in black and white. And we will appear shirtless. He’s the artist, so he knows best, right?
This is the first (and only) time this photo has hit the light of day.
Note: There is this group photo and we each took individual photos. Each print is 18″ x 24″ in size.
Enjoy, cruel world.”
