Picture Perfect - Behind The Awkwardness

Picture Perfect

“This is my family attempting to take an Easter picture circa 1986 in Mobile, AL. I love this because my grandfather is the only one looking. I’m pretty sure this is what all families look like trying to take a family picture with little kids.”

Neighbors - Behind The Awkwardness

Neighbors

“I am not certain how or why this picture took place since I was the youngest  (being held by the ninja). However, I have been told that the ninja was in fact our neighbor, what I question is why my sisters and I were such willing participants. Hey, mom and dad- why didn’t you tell us about “stranger danger?”

Thank You For Not Smoking - Family Portrait

Thank You For Not Smoking

“My dad had a last minute idea to add a prop to our family photo.  He saw the photographer had cigarettes and decided that everyone in the photo should have one.  I am the red head bottom right with my eyes rolled up.”

Throwing Signs - Family Portrait

Throwing Signs

“My parents are both very serious people and do not joke around. My brother and I joke about my involvement in my sorority, Alpha Phi, and my minimal commitment to my chapter. After taking a Thanksgiving family photo, my brother and I asked my parents to make the “throw what you know” Greek Alpha Phi sign with their hands and mouth. They had no idea what was happening and complied out of confusion.”

Touch of Teal - Family Portrait

Touch of Teal

“My Mum made most of the clothes so we’d all be very matchy-matchy. She also looks like Tootsie. And clearly I thought we were posing for a Target catalogue. At least my Dad’s perm had worn off pre-shoot.”
