Behind The Awkwardness

funny sibling photo

The Odd Couple

“Little did people know that Laura Ingalls Wilder had a pet unicorn. My sister and I are six years apart and total opposites, as it is clear from his photo taken on Halloween 1994 in my kindergarten class. When she wanted to be her favorite book character, I just wanted to be a unicorn. Our parents still have this framed and put on the wall of their house.”

awkward brother photo

Safari Ride

“My parents, for some reason, got a kick out of dressing my brother and me in identical outfits for photographs. The theme for 1991 – Boys on Safari. In fact, we’ve decided to recreate the pose now, at ages 27 and 30 – just need to find the safari outfits in our sizes, and a photographer with an open mind.”

awkward easter bunny

Bunnybackers

“My mom worked for the local University athletic department and thought it would be a good idea to hire a few football players to dress up as Easter bunnies. My friend and I cried the moment we saw them. Our parents finally coaxed us over to the swings to get a quick photo before they sent them away. It was definitely an Easter fail.”
