Centerpiece - Behind The Awkwardness

“Every year, we made a family Christmas card that involved us acting out a particular theme that we selected for that year. This particular year, we chose to pull from the story of The Grinch.”

Take Two

Take Two - Behind The Awkwardness

“These two photos are from circa ’85. Though my parents had divorced several years earlier, my father came over to my mom’s house so we could take our Christmas Card pictures. One photo for Dad to send to his friends and family, and a different photo for Mom to send to hers. Dad thought it would be a great idea for me to stick my hand out of frame so as to imply that Mom, or in the other photo, Dad, was standing just outside the shot. I also really like how the background was meticulously chosen over, say, a shrub or maybe a grill. Here we are, um, in our backyard.”

Baby Barely

Baby Barely - Babies

“We were in vacation on Virginia visiting my aunt. My mom and dad thought it’d be a good idea to get a picture of my brother and I with the ocean in the background. And an even better idea letting my barely older than me brother hold me… the baby. Well, when my dad said “okay on the count of three” my brother Matt thought that meant to let go. My mom and aunt raced to grab me and caught me barely by the foot. My dad kept snapping the picture which resulted in this family classic.”
