Doggy Style

Doggy Style - Behind The Awkwardness

“Our family went to the local portrait studio with our dog, Prudence. My dad, who loved her very much, considered her a member of the family and therefore wanted her to be a part of the photo.

I’m from Jersey, so I guess that’s why the doctors said it was nothing to worry about.  You can see the white spots on my arms where they were “molding” me into position with their hands. My fiance on the other hand finds this to be the scariest picture in existence. It’s basically visual contraband in our home.”

Pizza Party

Pizza Party - Behind The Awkwardness

“In 1991, my dad opened a pizza shop called Lotsa Motsa Pizza. Before he opened the doors to the shop, we had our family photos with the pizza shirts and pizza. I’m pretty happy we did because it produced some pretty awesomely awkward pictures.”

Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand - Behind The Awkwardness

“Some members of the family were late for another Easter dinner they needed to attend, my father-in-law was grumping about standing for too long, my brother-in-law ran to grab the ladder so I could set the camera on it as a kids were escaping left and right. After twenty minutes of gathering the crew for a quick portrait before we dispersed, I finally figured out how to set the self-timer, framed the photo and clicked the button. I ran to my position and focused on being ready for the shot- I didn’t want to do this undignified dance too many times…Read More →
