Behind The Awkwardness

Little Squirt

“The photographer captures the exact moment Dad feels the shot while Mom just smiles for the camera…. now this is an awkward announcement photo!”

Days of Denim

“This is my family around 1995 or so. The height of Ck1 and denim themed family photos apparently. That’s me smashing my ribs and gripping on for dear life while I had to hold my serious face pose.”

Without A Paddle

“This is my aunt and her family on vacation. She fell out of the raft and the raft guide grabbed her foot as she went under. This is the most intense part of the river trip so they have someone stand on shore and take your photo. Luckily they captured this.”

Meltdown

“I’m not sure what was going on, but I didn’t want anyone near me.”

United We Segway

“About a decade ago, my dad had a phase of hyper-intense community involvement. He somehow came up with with the idea of putting a piano on a rented Segway and having me play patriotic tunes while riding in the local 4th of July parade to promote a local politicians election campaign. Predictably, the keyboard idea didn’t pan out, so he just had us bedazzle it in America and call it a day. This was that day.”

Smackdown

“My twin and I fighting over a chair, 1991.”

Snowballs

“Our youngest daughter was throwing snowballs at my husband on the first warm day we have seen in months. Apparently, forty-five degres and sunshine equals no shoes! I was attempting to take a photo of her tossing a snowball barefoot and captured her hitting the bullseye instead!”

Laser Trolls

“This is my little sister in 4th grade. My mom took us to get our pictures made, and my mom and sister thought it would be a great idea to add the trolls into the mix. As you can see: awkward GOLD!”

Overflow

“My two boys oldest boys were in our new jacuzzi tub, they were approximately 5 and 7 years old. Like all safe and responsible parents we left them alone for awhile. When we came back the whole bathroom was covered in bubbles. They said “It just happened by itself”. There was no shampoo left in the shampoo bottle. My husband and I were trying not to laugh when we were correcting them. My ever so mischievous second son has the ever present “Am I in trouble again?” Look on his face when this picture was taken.”

Holier Than Thou

“My little sister’s first Holy Communion. She was over getting her picture taken and wanted to get out of that dress. We were like, “Just one more in the parking lot!”
