American Revolution - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is our ONLY professional family photo circa 1980. It was a fundraiser through my school. My mother made me wear my marching band outfit. It was humiliating and not only is the picture forever, it was witnessed by my entire grade school. (I love the pic now though!)”

The Force Awakens (Awkwardly)

The Force Awakens (Awkwardly) - Behind The Awkwardness

“Have you ever had that horrible recurring dream where you are trick-or-treating but forgot to wear pants? In honor of the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I present this classic photo of me and my brother on Halloween, 1978. The joy of this photo is in the details. My brother’s little hand sticking out the top to try to hold the box up… My lack of pants (though I *am* wearing tights, I swear)… Couldn’t he have had a little less cardboard and given some to me? Also note that we needed to (incorrectly) label ourselves since no one knew what we were supposed to be — I wonder why. Sigh.”

Nice Shirt, Grandpa - Behind The Awkwardness

“My Dad came to visit me after the birth of my 1st child. I took this picture as he held her. After I got the photos back, I realized the slaughter behind her as she slept! Kentucky Fried nightmare.”

Cult of Personalities

Cult of Personalities - Behind The Awkwardness

“This photo says it all. My oldest brother was and still is the quiet one. My middle brother was always getting in trouble and speaking his mind, and I am still the little sister who sees the good in every situation and always with a smile.”

Snake Charmer - Behind The Awkwardness

“Apparently getting home from after a day at the beach was the perfect time for mom to take a pic of me, my snake and my grumpy face in front of the fireplace.”

Matchy Matchy Matchy

Matchy Matchy Matchy - Behind The Awkwardness

“My mom and me, winter of 1981. The matching PJ’s were on purpose. My grandfather made them for us. The fact that the clothing also matched that chair (in my other grandparents’ house)? That part was apparently a coincidence.”

My Sister Is A Centaur

My Sister Is A Centaur - Behind The Awkwardness

“My sister and I had this photo taken as a gift for our parents in 1995. Little did we know it would turn out to be an optical illusion. I’m the one in the black sweater and blue jeans, but if you look at it just right, it appears that my sister is crunched up in a ball in the front, and I’m the black-clad mythical creature in the back.”
