Photos

Pugsley and Wednesday

“My mom used to give us pet names (I’m not sure if that’s the name for it, but like when your parents have a special cutesy name for you that is embarrassing? I’m digressing.) Ours were Pugsley and Wednesday. She always wanted us to do this photo and we had flat out refused over and over again. One day in July, she starts braiding my hair and hands my younger brother a shoddily painted white shirt and told us to stand still “or else”. It was too late to attack her now so we relented. Those became the Holiday photos for at least 2 years. And she sent them to everyone. Coworkers, distant friends, family members. My 8th grade teacher got one, she still has it. It makes her laugh. Ugh.”

Permilicious Revisited

The ladies of “Permilicious” stopped by the Awkward Family Photos Museum Exhibition this week in Geneva, IL and we we want to thank them for sending us this photo.

Fallen

“I hear my 3 year old screaming, “Help! Mommy!” I ran to find him. Poor thing had forgotten to put his potty seat on and fell in the toilet. Of course, I had to take a picture before helping him out.”

Cult Of Personality

“When I was about 5 (I’m 40 now) my parents thought it would be fun to take some weird pictures on a camping trip to send to their friends and family.  Apparently, we frightened the park ranger. The end result is a pretty fantastic family portrait.  I can’t decide if we look more like the missing three from Fleetwood Mac or the leaders of a cult.”
