Heads Up - Behind The Awkwardness

“My Mother got a great deal on this family portrait, mainly because it wasn’t meant to be for a family THIS size. But we were all together, so she was determined to make it work.”

Channel Surfing

Channel Surfing - Behind The Awkwardness

“This pic of my cousin Julia and I was taken after Thanksgiving dinner, 2012. My sister took the shot but, before she did, she handed the remote control off to my 63 year old mother. It wasn’t until we were looking at the pics a few days later that we saw where my mom’s channel surfing had landed her.”

Interview With A Vampire

Interview With A Vampire - Behind The Awkwardness

“Back in the early 1970′s my crazy mother loved having big, over the top Halloween parties.  At this one, she rented a coffin from a funeral home and laid in it for hours while my friends came to visit her.  I think she was loaded personally.  To this day, people remember her for this party!”

Granny’s Got A Gun

Granny’s Got A Gun - Behind The Awkwardness

“In 2010, we sent you this spunky picture of our sweet Grandma Nadine (taken years earlier). We are saying goodbye to this beautiful woman on Tuesday, but are forever grateful to AFP for memorializing her spunky attitude on your board game. She got a kick out of being a part of the AFP family! Thanks for sharing our fun memories!”

We are sending our love to Lisa and to her legendary Grandma. Her spirit and spunk in this photo will live on forever.

It’s A Hard Knock Life

It’s A Hard Knock Life - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was 6 years old.  My mother was obsessed with me being Annie because I had curly hair.  So, she fluffed it up, bought me a red dress and a stuffed dog and had my picture taken.  I can’t sing, I can’t dance and had no interest in theater.  Hopefully, the photo was enough for her dream.”

Taking The Plunge

Taking The Plunge - Babies

“My 11 month old was fascinated by the household toilet plunger.  Obviously, it was off limits. But after a week of constantly prying it from his little grasp, I bought him a brand new one for his very own. And then… this is what he did with it.”
