Public Displays Of Affection

“During our holiday family photo shoot this year, we wanted to recreate a cute one we got last year when Tommy was just a baby. It didn’t quite turn out like we hoped it would…next time I guess mom should avoid sticking her nose in his eye.”

American Revolution - Behind The Awkwardness

American Revolution

“This is our ONLY professional family photo circa 1980. It was a fundraiser through my school. My mother made me wear my marching band outfit. It was humiliating and not only is the picture forever, it was witnessed by my entire grade school. (I love the pic now though!)”

The Sea Of Galilee - Family Portrait

The Sea Of Galilee

“When I was 14 years old (in 1989), my family moved to Israel, from Canada, for a full year. As you can see from this family photo taken alongside the Sea of Galilee, this was an awkward age for me to live abroad with family.”

You Can Call Me Al - Family Portrait

You Can Call Me Al

My Mom, Dad, sister, Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt. I’m the little girl with the amazing ringlet in the pink coat. The best part is, this was in the 80’s and you just know we set the timer on that ol’ Canon and Dad had to run like hell to get back to his designated spot. We got it developed and then noticed the gun to Grandpa Al’s head. It eventually was enlarged and framed in each household! Even better, my grandparents are Al and Betty. ‘You can call be Betty, and Betty when you call me you can caaalllllll meeee Aalllll!’ They have never heard the song.”
