Le Resistance - Behind The Awkwardness

Le Resistance

“I’m a photographer and was taking pictures for a beautiful family, but their littlest member was not a fan. Multiple times, he told me no as I asked him to smile and in this picture he just refused to even sit with his family. What we ended up with is a gorgeous family portrait with little Jack admiring from afar likely telling me no in protest of our photo shoot.”

Little House On The Prairie - Behind The Awkwardness

Little House On The Prairie

“Growing up our house was in the country next to an old farm. The original “pump house” or well was in our back yard. My parents thought it would be great to dress in colonial attire and pose in front of the “pump house”. Since it was 1976 my mom had sewn costumes for the bicentennial parade that were riding in and there you go…….the “colonial family” picture. I didn’t know that they had schnauzers and cocker spaniels during that time.”

“My brothers hated having their picture taken, so I’m guessing that’s what’s up with them. As for the rest of us, I don’t know what the problem is.”
