Backseat Rider

Backseat Rider - Behind The Awkwardness

Christmas of 1982.  I was 2 years old and obviously not the favorite child.  My only option was to take a “back seat” to my sister, Meghan (age 5) if I wanted to sled ride, even if it meant riding on my stomach down the slope.  Apparently this was seemed like a safe idea to my dad (pictured) and my mom who snapped this shot!  This picture pretty much sums up the next 30 years of my life.

Merry Christmas from AFP!

Merry Christmas from AFP! - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was taken back in 1971 when I was about 18 months old. My grandmother had one of our cousins dress up as Santa to surprise me and my aunt (who is holding me). I’m not sure what happened to Santa on the way over…..looks like he was run over by one of his reindeer. I think this is where I got my early love of all things scary :)”

Tape - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“My father took this picture of my brothers and I. He’s from Slovakia and English is his second language. Maybe he couldn’t read the sign.”

“We found this in an old family photo album over Thanksgiving.  That’s my great-grandmother… that’s a sausage… and that’s a vibrating bed. Yep.”

Made To Fit

Made To Fit - Behind The Awkwardness

“This 1984 picture was the result of a Christmas I really wanted to make memorable ! Just two days before Christmas, I set out to make clothes to fit the scene so that the four of us could pose in a family Christmas picture. Since my little girl, Christina, was in her terrible twos rarely setting still for pictures at all, and our six year old son Justin, wasn’t quite as easily persuaded to pose for pictures as he use to be, I just had to take action to preserve our happy faces sharing the moment at Christmastime. This was the first and the last time I could capture a silly, but warm and tender setting with all four of us posing in a holiday picture. Today, this is “our” all time favorite family Christmas picture… and boy would I love to re-create this now that our children have grown!”

The Drop

The Drop - Behind The Awkwardness

“I am that white blob on the table. My grandfather dropped me and my mother captured the action perfectly. Look how much my siblings care about me. My brother is raising the roof, my sister is telling him to raise it higher, and my grandmother is too absorbed by my little sister.”
