Go to The Light

Go to The Light - Behind The Awkwardness

“So back in the day, my grandparents decided they needed professional photos of us grandkids. We went to some department store photo shoot place and they put us in a variety of unnatural poses while we all wore uncomfortable sweaters and smiled in ways we never have before. For this particular photo, the photographer told us to look up at this lightbulb. My brother and I thought, “uhh…okay?” So then the photographer prompted us to look up into the light as if we were in awe. I’m not sure if it was supposed to be God we were looking at or Santa or an alien abduction, but we could not get over how uncomfortable this photo shoot was with our whole family watching.”

Achy Breaky Hearts

Achy Breaky Hearts - Siblings

“My mom thought it would be neat to wear swimsuits. Let me tell you– it was pretty darn awkward walking into an Olan Mills in swimwear along with the Achy Breaky hairstyles. Fortunately, enough time has passed that I can look back at this now and laugh.”

Humble Pie

Humble Pie - Siblings

“My brothers and I proudly showing off our gym outfits from middle school. We had just moved from Chicago to Humble, TX, and traded in our school uniforms for these delightful white/purple ensembles. Luckily, we wore different colored striped socks to express our individuality; otherwise we could’ve looked REALLY silly.”

Lapbrother - Siblings

“I’m sure my mom thought this photo was a wonderful idea at the time. The fact that my sister is superimposed as a giant ghostly head distracts from the more disturbing details– like the fact that I am sitting on my older brother’s lap and holding hands with him, and that we also have matching glasses. I don’t remember a lot about the day that we took this photo, but I do remember thinking that my brown striped sweater was my ‘cool’ sweater and I insisted on wearing it. The fact that my collar had a longer wingspan than a bald eagle is a nice finishing touch.”
