Bad To The Bone

Bad To The Bone - Behind The Awkwardness

“One morning two years ago my son had a bad hair day. As a third grade boy, he did not want to remedy this – no matter what I said. I gave up- choosing to pick my battles. Neither one of us remembered that it was Picture Day.”

Go to The Light

Go to The Light - Behind The Awkwardness

“So back in the day, my grandparents decided they needed professional photos of us grandkids. We went to some department store photo shoot place and they put us in a variety of unnatural poses while we all wore uncomfortable sweaters and smiled in ways we never have before. For this particular photo, the photographer told us to look up at this lightbulb. My brother and I thought, “uhh…okay?” So then the photographer prompted us to look up into the light as if we were in awe. I’m not sure if it was supposed to be God we were looking at or Santa or an alien abduction, but we could not get over how uncomfortable this photo shoot was with our whole family watching.”

Doggy Style

Doggy Style - Behind The Awkwardness

“Our family went to the local portrait studio with our dog, Prudence. My dad, who loved her very much, considered her a member of the family and therefore wanted her to be a part of the photo. When we posed for the picture, Prudence would not stay still so my Dad straddled the bench to keep her still. This photo hung in our house for years, and, the truth is, we were oblivious about its awkwardness until a close friend pointed it out.”

Orange Is The New Baby

Orange Is The New Baby - Babies

“For the first few months of my life, I was orange. I’m from Jersey, so I guess that’s why the doctors said it was nothing to worry about.  You can see the white spots on my arms where they were “molding” me into position with their hands. My fiance on the other hand finds this to be the scariest picture in existence. It’s basically visual contraband in our home.”

Summing It Up - Behind The Awkwardness

“I really don’t know which is worse, the size of the collar, the print of the shirt, the hair, or the glasses. Okay, it’s the glasses.”

“I’m not sure what my dad was doing. I’m going to assume that my brother and I had been yelled at by our mom while she was holding our cousin.”
