51 Today

Anyone else old enough that they have the portraits that were painted in over black and white?




Guess my mom liked this color on me. Not sure what it is -maroon? cranberry? I never know what the difference is.

Happy Birthday!!! Hope your kiddos are extra well behaved today!

Unfortunately my pictures are from the 70's when they started using a cruddier paper or process or something because the pictures are yellowed and not nearly as pretty as the pictures from the decades before. My mom's pictures are in much better shape (color and vibrancy wise) than the ones I had taken when I was little.

Thank you.

My yearly school photos are pretty bad. But my early portraits from Olan Mills were actually B&W painted in I think.

Thank you. You are probably young enough that you have the regular color portraits
