On Golden Pond

On Golden Pond - Behind The Awkwardness

“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.”

Urban Cowboy - Behind The Awkwardness

“This was one of my most awkward years, early 80′s when Urban Cowboy was blowing up at the box office.  My school decided that spring photos would be exactly that. Well I am not sure if that was the greatest of ideas, but its given my family, facebook and now hopefully AFP plenty more laughs!!!”

“Our family of 6 kids did a lot of traveling by VW bus.  This shows the youngest brother ‘hanging’ around.   I have a bunch more awkward family shots but this one just cracks us all up.”
