Behind The Awkwardness

Everybody Do The Dinosaur

“Photo of my family and me (on the left) in the 80’s. No lie, this was a casual Saturday afternoon on our way to the mall! Just HaleyASaurus, MommyASaurus, and HeidiASaurus traveling around in our “Wish We Were A Dinosaur Family” sweats!”

Public Admirer

“That’s my little sister in the middle, it was her 4th birthday party. The boy behind her was her first stalker. When we moved away the next year,  he told her as soon as he was old enough to drive he was coming for her with a moving truck to bring her back.”

The Air Below

“As a professional photographer, I always hoped never to take a photo that would be fit for this site. So much for hope.”

The Birthday Cake

“I was really proud of this Spiderman cake I made for my sons 4th birthday. I tried to get both Spiderman and the motorcycle he was riding on the top of the cake. Unfortunately, both didn’t fit. I didn’t realize until the party was in full swing what exqctly Spiderman was doing to the cake.”

Horns

“It was our grandparents’ 60th wedding anniversary – circa 1967. I especially remember the itchy taffeta dress but mostly being pulled from my dancing in the aisles to take this picture. On the right, my sister with the “halo” bow & cake behind her … obedient, stand here, arms down, smile, okay, yes. Me with the devil horn candles behind me … WTF? Can I leave now? We are pretty sure our Mom taped our bangs to our foreheads and cut away. Had my parents understood the prophetic sign that I would be rebellious they may have just given me away that day.”

Summer Vacation

“That’s me and my cousin Alex at the age of about 8 years old at the Marquette Ore Mine. This photo was taken on one of our many summer visits to my grandmother’s home in Michigan.  Poor Grandma was running out of fun activities for us to do during these long summer visits.”

The Hangover

“It was 1978 and my parents used to party every Saturday night… even if it was the night before Easter.”

Bunny On The Loose

“It seemed like a good idea at the time: the Easter Bunny emerging from the gardening shed to surprise the children and join the egg hunt. My then 4-year old daughter didn’t think so. And when the shed door crashed open and the Bunny stumbled out and staggered about because he couldn’t see out of the costume, can you blame her?”
