Behind The Awkwardness

Burning Down The House

“Backstory, ha! I wish I knew! The pic is me (in the towel?!?) and my baby brother .. circa 1989 and I have no idea why we are so calm and why my Mom or Dad felt the need to snap this photo!”

Congratulations

“Taking this photo Easter Morning 1986 seemed like a good idea at the time. The CONGRATULATIONS sign is from our younger son’s Confirmation the week before. Apparently no time to take it down before Easter morning.”

Roll Bounce

“This was taken early 1965. I was posing with my favorite truck while my sisters roller skated in the driveway. The oldest sister has a unconvincing ‘I didn’t do it’ look while my other sister goes down hard.”

Ashes To Ashes

“An inquisitive baby, I’d often explore places that normally would be ‘off-limits’.  The cold soft ash felt good in my little fingers though!  Luckily, my brothers ‘rescued’ me, and my parents thought to snap a photo of it.”

Afternoon Delight

“We were in our early 20s and thought this would be great if our boyfriends became musicians.”

Falling Slowly

“My daughter and I had been holding hands and she was leaning away from me and our photographer caught the perfect moment!  So the rest of us are looking fabulous while my 2 year old is crashing into the pavement!”

The Final Frontier

“My daughter’s father gave his whole family space outfits for Christmas in hopes to get the family together for a photo session. I thought it was the oddest idea ever.”
