Family Portraits - Caricature Style!
In 2005, we started a family tradition of getting caricatures of ourselves whenever we went somewhere that had a caricature artist. Caricatures are a lot more fun than a family portrait, because there's a story behind the art, and we like to see how each artist captures us.
Photos come from all kinds of places and devices. The big viewer below shows the latest 100 personal, family photos. Visit our Flickr photostream to see all of the photos.
Videos capture fun moments in time of my family activities around home and on vacation. It's fun to look back at the experiences we've had and how fast my kids grew up.

Our family history can be traced directly back to the 1700's in the United States. We have English, Czechoslovakian, Polish, German, and probably a few other things in our blood.
Our "Holloway" name is English in origin.
My father, Stephen Holloway, found our family coat of arms or family crest... the one specific to our lineage. It was in a box with a collection of items from my great grand parents who were born in the early 1900's. We don't know how far back our specific coat of arms goes or when it originated. There were hand-written notes next the coat of arms that told us what colors are used and how they are applied. Unfortunately, we don't know the meaning of all the items. It has the same structural themes as evidenced by the generic Holloway family coat of arms found by searching the Internet.
Holloway Coat of Arms
- The font is a mix of English Towne and English Gothic, 17c.
- The red fess is a "girdle of honor" indicating a readiness to serve.
- Blue = truth and loyalty
- Gold = generosity and elevation of the mind
- Silver crescents mean "second son," honored by the sovereign, and stand for hope and glory.
- The animal is a red antelope with serrated horns that is chained. It stands for fierceness and valor and is dangerous when aroused.
- The golden crescent and gold base's significance is unknown.
- The white patch of ermine spots signify dignity and the alliance with other families.
- The tooth on the patch signifies the merging with the Toothman family in 2007.
The design and content of this website keeps pace with web styles, technology, and approaches, while building upon each iteration. It's neat to see progressing screenshots and how far my design and content have come... it nearly matches the evolutionary stages of web design.
The first version of this website started a long time ago at Ohio University, where web hosting and learning new technologies was built into the DNA of the students. Now, I host my own domain and try to keep up! I'm always learning...
