Awkward Band Photos

The Awkward Family team searched high and low to find the most awkward band photos of all time. Notice we don’t say worst, because the way we see it, these uncomfortable...

Dress Porn

“My grandmother, bless her heart, made this dress for me by hand. However, she never noticed the fabric she was sewing was covered with pictures of a couple making out. She then rolled my hair and sent me to school…on PICTURE day… I still love you MawMaw.”

Cool And The Gang

“While we were never the type of family to sit for a studio portrait, someone stumbled across a coupon and decided to give it a shot. Mind you, this is the ONE AND ONLY family portrait we ever took.

It’s goofy, sure, but back then, it was just ‘us’.
