Lemonade Stand

Lemonade Stand - Behind The Awkwardness

“Some members of the family were late for another Easter dinner they needed to attend, my father-in-law was grumping about standing for too long, my brother-in-law ran to grab the ladder so I could set the camera on it as a kids were escaping left and right. After twenty minutes of gathering the crew for a quick portrait before we dispersed, I finally figured out how to set the self-timer, framed the photo and clicked the button.

Daddy Direction

Daddy Direction - Behind The Awkwardness

“By the look of the ponchos and the Frye boots, it’s around 1970. When it came to family photos, my dad was short tempered at the best of times. Here’s how it all went down.

Top photo, right to left. Me: “Dad told me to stand here.” Brad: “You’re supposed to be down at that end.” Brian: “Go where Brad says.” Grammy: “Oh look, a bug.” Jennifer: “I can’t see it.” Grandpa: “C’mon, Rachel, it will be ok.” Rachel: POUT.

One eighth of a second before the bottom photo. Dad (roaring): “LINE UP AND SMILE OR I’LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT!”

July Fourth Toilet

July Fourth Toilet - Behind The Awkwardness

This is indeed my family. I was the youngest. It was taken at a photo studio in Fort St. John, British Columbia. The photographer kept asking little ole pre-pubescent me about what I thought of girls. It was hard for me to form a response. He also made me put my hand on my brother, Perry. The oldest brother Frank still plays guitar (it’s obvious that he was into music by his look) and my band July Fourth Toilet even had him play guitar on one of our records as well as in live shows.

The Little People

big chair picture, awkward kids

“I’m the boy sitting next to the two Umpa Lumpas (sisters), with my mom and brother right behind me. Soon after this fun-filled afternoon, my sister dropped a glass bottle of milk on my foot and I got 24 stitches.”
