Behind The Awkwardness


Crash - Behind The Awkwardness

“This Christmas picture is one of my favorites..1999. Our son is in his terrible twos here. We were all posed for the annual picture, had the timer set on the camera and our son falls off the stool. His hand is in his sister’s face. Susie and I are trying to catch him and Susie is screaming something….I’ll let you fill in that blank.”

NOel - Behind The Awkwardness

“My parents were married just after New Years in 1983. The Christmas decorations were still up and the NOEL letters were on the fireplace. My dad doesn’t smile for pictures and you can see my mom trying to get him to at least show some teeth. The best part is that all you can see of NOEL is NO. Pretty fitting for the groom’s expression!”

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.”

Lil Pimp - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is my brother and I around 1975. He had been given the outfit as a gift (I believe from a relative) and they decided it would be a good idea to wear this to church.”
