Over The Shoulder

“This is another picture from my wedding. The other submitted is Groom Tube.  Once again the photographer had us in another awkward position.  I am 5′ 7″ and my sister is 5′ 4″.  He had us pose that way.  It reminds me of a toothpaste commercial or something just as silly.”

The Jump Off

“Photographer asked us to do ‘the jump.’ Clearly, my sister didn’t hold her dress down properly and somehow, my husband’s neck disappeared.”

Falling Slowly

“My daughter and I had been holding hands and she was leaning away from me and our photographer caught the perfect moment!  So the rest of us are looking fabulous while my 2 year old is crashing into the pavement!”

The Final Frontier

“My daughter’s father gave his whole family space outfits for Christmas in hopes to get the family together for a photo session. I thought it was the oddest idea ever.”

Roller Derby - Behind The Awkwardness

Roller Derby

“This photo was taken in the Fall of 1966. My Dad just returned from a hunting trip with the hide & antlers of his prized 5 point bull elk. It was Saturday night and my older sister & I just had our hair rolled for church the next morning. I was obviously thrilled to have my picture taken with the stupid elk and rollers in my hair.”

Replica - Behind The Awkwardness

Replica

“My brother and sister-in-law got married about 17 years ago and my kids were asked to be in their wedding party… my son was the ring bearer, my oldest daughter was a junior bridesmaid and my youngest daughter was dressed in a miniature replica of the bride’s gown. In this family photo, we look like a crazy family that just married off our two youngest children, my older daughter looks like she has one oddly placed prosthetic leg, and I’m rocking some sweet shoulder pads.”

On Golden Pond - Behind The Awkwardness

On Golden Pond

“A very short-lived photo studio opened at the mall near our house and my brother and I begged for months to get our family photo taken there.  Finally, our parents relented and  our family spent a glorious evening trying a variety of poses and costumes before selecting this gem.  The real highlight came with people’s reactions to the photo after we had it framed and placed over the fireplace.  Because this was before the advent of Photoshop, a lot of people ACTUALLY BELIEVED THAT THIS HAD HAPPENED…even one of my brother’s girlfriends.”
