Goosebumps - Behind The Awkwardness

“One year in elementary school, we were given the option of taking a hobby photo in addition to our regular picture.  My parents suggested I do a soccer photo or even one with my clarinet but I insisted on Goosebumps, explaining that the clarinet one would be too dorky.  I’ve never actually read the book I’m holding and out of the 50 or so titles I collected in the series, I only read about 5.  None of those 5 were the book I won a city-wide poster contest for in sixth grade; I just liked drawing wolves.  I guess the judges never read them either.”

Shadows - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was my first communion picture. First of all, the hair is epic!! Crop top WITH tight perm? Yes please!!! But the real gem of the picture is my little sister, who for some reason wasn’t allowed in the pic and is seen lurking in the shadows in the background! Lol! And we wonder why she had middle child syndrome!!!”

Channel 9 - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is me at approximately 4 years old, in 1988. My brother came across this gem during a move. I sent this to my dad, asking if he remembered taking this picture, since he was the main picture-taker in our family. His response was, “Oh I did! You look so pretty and cute!” But Dad, what about what’s on the TV next to me? Obviously, this was taken before we had the ability to pause live TV- perfect timing. Lol.”

Cheers - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is a photo of me ( holding my bear) and my grandpa and dad. One or the other would get stuck babysitting me at times. I’d get dragged down to the local bar, a cherry coke to nurse for the night and would have my bear to talk to. Good times for all.”

The Fall Guy

The Fall Guy - Behind The Awkwardness

“My mother has always had a ‘unique’ fashion sense and a love for capturing her family in pictures. In this epic photo, I the young boy in front of the group of hat-wearing ladies show my lack of interest in the photo by staging my only defense… rubber legs.”

Lost In Translation - Behind The Awkwardness

“I was going through old family photos with my best friend when I came across this gem. Looks like the shirt should say “sweatshirt”, but the way he’s positioned it looks like it says “Eat…”
