In A Galaxy - Family Portrait

“This is a friend of mine. Posted for Star Wars Day. She is apparently supposed to be Leia and not some Goth prom queen. He’s Luke… not just a Renaissance fair bar keep. And their baby is supposedly an ewok. But Luke and Leia are brother and sister… maybe that is how ewoks are born?”

Doggy Style

Doggy Style - Behind The Awkwardness

“Our family went to the local portrait studio with our dog, Prudence. My dad, who loved her very much, considered her a member of the family and therefore wanted her to be a part of the photo. When we posed for the picture, Prudence would not stay still so my Dad straddled the bench to keep her still. This photo hung in our house for years, and, the truth is, we were oblivious about its awkwardness until a close friend pointed it out.”

Pull My Finger - Family Portrait

“What should have been such a simple thing. ‘Let’s take a picture,’ turned into this. Apparently, taking a picture with Mom and Dad was just too much to ask. Thankfully, we moved on from this awkward moment.”

Pizza Party - Behind The Awkwardness

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!”
