Daddy’s gone across the ocean, leaving just a memory

The fifteen-pack Sears Portrait Package includes a choice of predetermined backgrounds and props. Olan Mills lectures us: “Our photographer will take five poses using various backgrounds, props, and special effects. You will need a table like the one below which you can print out and bring to the studio.”

In either case, you are expected to encapsulate your most personal memories of your family with a predesigned, focus-tested Happy Meal menu of photos.

As Mr. Fantastic says, fuc dat.

Go invent your history. Go make your family photos something worth looking at.
