School Ties

School Ties - Behind The Awkwardness

“As was tradition in our family, we were taking our first day of school photos.  The cat, Cuddles, had been posing with us in some of our earlier shots and then ran off.  I was whining because I wanted to have the cat in the pictures.  My brother, intolerant of my whining, punched me and told me to shut up.  This made me cry and I started crying harder when I realized my mom was still taking pictures.”

Haunted House

Haunted House - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is me somewhere around 1981-82 with a demon at a local haunted house that ran every year. I was addicted to horror movies as a kid (and still am) so whenever the haunted house started up, I’d beg my mom let me to go in with the lights off.  After an endless amount of badgering, she finally let me go through in the dark. Expecting me to come running back out screaming, she stayed by the entrance only to see me come bouncing out the exit with a huge smile on my face. To commemorate this, she let me pose for a picture with the demon. As you can see, my smile refused to fade even a little bit and I was probably more than a little overdressed for the occasion.”

The Big Dig

The Big Dig - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is my family. Maybe 1977. The beautiful backdrop of the golden sunset on wallpaper accentuates the glow of happiness on our faces. My little sister is clearly the champion. My dad was a part time photographer in the 70′s, and we took lots of posed family portraits. This one my sister found deep in the archives of old negatives. It never saw the light of day….until now!”

Behind The Awkwardness: Our Little Pumpkin

Behind The Awkwardness: Our Little Pumpkin - Behind The Awkwardness

“My 3 year old was very unhappy about his first preschool field trip even though it was to a fun pumpkin patch. He scowled at everyone and everything the entire time and was even madder after I coerced him to getting behind this pumpkin cut-out to take this picture… if looks could kill, I would have been dead immediately after taking this photo!”
