The Big Dig

The Big Dig - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is my family. Maybe 1977. The beautiful backdrop of the golden sunset on wallpaper accentuates the glow of happiness on our faces. My little sister is clearly the champion. My dad was a part time photographer in the 70′s, and we took lots of posed family portraits. This one my sister found deep in the archives of old negatives. It never saw the light of day….until now!”

Behind The Awkwardness: Our Little Pumpkin

Behind The Awkwardness: Our Little Pumpkin - Behind The Awkwardness

“My 3 year old was very unhappy about his first preschool field trip even though it was to a fun pumpkin patch. He scowled at everyone and everything the entire time and was even madder after I coerced him to getting behind this pumpkin cut-out to take this picture… if looks could kill, I would have been dead immediately after taking this photo!”

Call Waiting

Call Waiting - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

“After the wedding, my husband’s friends drove to the reception and started calling repeatedly after about 10 minutes while we were trying to take the pictures. January in Nashville was cold – 19 degrees! It was cold, and we kept having to stop so he could answer the phone. Needless to say, after about the 3rd phone call, I had enough! (Note the fist.)”

Behind The Awkwardness: Facemask

Behind The Awkwardness: Facemask - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is a photo of my younger sister and I on Christmas in 1996. I’m the one with the triumphant look on my face holding the cards and mashing my hand in my sister’s face. I love this picture because it pretty much sums up the relationship I have with my sister. It also tells you a lot about my family… like the fact that my parents took a picture of the situation before pulling me off of my sister.”

Behind The Awkwardness: MSPaint

Behind The Awkwardness: MSPaint - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is a picture of myself (Archie shirt) and my family. It was originally taken without my Dad, as my dad was always off being a pilot somewhere. My parents were having problems at the time, and so, in wanting a complete family photo, my mother added my dad – cut out from another picture – to it. I wish I had a copy of that one, because his head was 3x larger than ours, facing the wrong way, and his shirt had been marked in with a sharpie marker. When my parents stopped having problems, she changed the photo of him to the one now there. This was also at the time that she discovered MSPaint. She decided she thought my sister was being disrespectful by wearing an Arachnophobia shirt, so she painted it out with white. She printed it and put it up in our family home, where it remained on the wall for over ten years.”
