Childhood Memories Made With Lasers

In the '90s, every kid wanted a school pic with totally rad lasers shooting in the background.

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Your childhood wasn’t a childhood unless you mugged for a cheesy picture in front of a weird backdrop.

Laserportraits.net takes people back to their totally rad youth when portraits were taken on a brightly colored, laser- ladened background.

Creator Lindsey Weber calls the blog a “tribute to the greatest school photo backdrop there ever was” and loves the fact that her most terribly awkward years involve awesome lasers.

Most of the photos hail back to the mid ’80s or early ’90s when wicked cool laser scenery was all the rage.

She remembers begging her mom to pay the extra $4 on picture day so she could have a laser show playing behind her, and clearly, those who submit their own pics have the same fond memory.

For those not fortunate enough to have experienced a sweet laser portrait as a kid, the site provides a laser background they can Photoshop themselves into.
