Portrait Of A Marriage - Behind The Awkwardness

Portrait Of A Marriage

“Christmas Day 2005, around the time my sister and brother-in-law started to disagree about everything – including whether or not they wanted to be in the same photograph. Surprisingly, the marriage lasted for another 3 years.”

“My cousins and brother were placed there by my uncle. Clearly my brother was not happy about being part of Grandma’s collection.”

Mouth-To-Head

“My mom and the other lady in the picture have been best friends pretty much since birth, so when they had babies at the same time they thought it would be cool if we ended up together. The other guy is my age and even though we live 700 miles away from each other and have had no contact, we have mutual friends. Unfortunately, I already showed this picture to some of our mutual friends and I’m pretty sure he knows who I am now. At some point, we’re going to run into each other. I don’t even know if this will be an icebreaker, or just the elephant in the room.”

“I came across this pictures of my mom’s family today. My Grandmother still thinks this picture is beautiful and doesn’t understand why people giggle about the awkwardness.”

“Here I am 3 years old.  My parents thought it would be cute to take my picture.  Yes that is a fur coat, snow man with 2 pennies for eyes and Pee-Wee Herman waiting for me at the bottom of the slide.  I promise a  I’m half way normal woman now.”

Recreating The Awkwardness

“As a Christmas gift for the in-laws my husband and I decided to re create his 1976 former communist Poland baptism photo.  My husbands grandmother was a seamstress and sewed the polyester suit that little B is wearing and of course adorned it for his special day.  Unfortunately he was still not happy- after many tries this was the happiest shot they could get out of him!”

“I thought it would be great to ring in the new year by volunteering & supporting the Albany Allstars Roller Derby (un-finished) calendar project back in 2011. I really did use this as an awkward (yet endearing, I hope!?) Seasons Greetings family card!”
