Our Mom Turned 70 And My Brother And I Decided To Recreate Our Hilarious Childhood Photos For Her Birthday

COVID-19 has everyone locked down and sad. My mom turned 70 this past July and before the virus came along, we had a plan to go on a big family trip together to celebrate her. Obviously, that was not to be, so my brother and I decided to honor her in the only way we knew how—with ourselves.

Our mom was the kind of mom who would take us to Sears for a formal portrait every year. She would probably still do this if we all lived in the same place. Many of you may recognize some of the background settings of the more studio-like of the portraits: fake Xmas tree, weird beige “blanket,” and, my personal favorite, floating baby head.

My brother and I had an excellent time recreating these photos, and we hope they will bring a smile to someone’s face.

But, really, we haven’t aged a bit

I love photorecreations like these. It shows humor and in this case, love for the family, being a present for their mother. Beautiful!
