Little House On The Prairie

Little House On The Prairie - Behind The Awkwardness

“Growing up our house was in the country next to an old farm. The original “pump house” or well was in our back yard. My parents thought it would be great to dress in colonial attire and pose in front of the “pump house”. Since it was 1976 my mom had sewn costumes for the bicentennial parade that were riding in and there you go…….the “colonial family” picture. I didn’t know that they had schnauzers and cocker spaniels during that time.”

Anatomy Of A Bouquet Catch

12 3

“In the last 6 years, I have caught the bouquet at almost every wedding I’ve attended. So much so that I forget how many I’ve actually caught but can more easily remember how many I haven’t caught (only 3, to be exact.) And on more than one occasion, I’ve snatched it out of the hands of the bride’s only sister… This photo captures not the exception, but rather the norm.”

The Door Way

The Door Way - Behind The Awkwardness

“Our wedding anniversary happened to fall on the same day of our 31st week of pregnancy. We took a photo honoring both special days, which got a little out of hand (the life ring was the “guest book” at our wedding.)”

White Wedding

White Wedding - Behind The Awkwardness

“My parents wedding in the early 60s. My mother and aunt both wore pan-stick makeup and judging by these pictures you can see why they don’t make it anymore!”

Double Vision

Double Vision - Behind The Awkwardness

“The year was 1976. My mom had just come home with that fabulous perm, and, apparently, I asked to have the same done to my hair.  I was three or four at the time, so I’ll have to take her word on that.  I do, however remember the traumatic experience of having that fro cut off several days after this picture was taken, because I played in a sandbox too emphatically and my mother couldn’t comb through the tangled, sandy mess!  This picture will always make me smile (while shaking my head).  It shows just how tiny our immediate family was – just me and my mom, with dad behind the camera at his studio. It’s goofy, sure, but back then, it was just ‘us’.”

K.O. - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is my older sister (by 12 years) and my father. She got boxing gloves for Christmas and thought it would be a good idea to challenge our father. From the picture, you can tell, it wasn’t such a good idea.”
