Brace Yourself

“This is a photo of my sister and nephew at a mother/son dance. My sister had come home from the doctor a few days earlier with the brace on. Instead of staying home, she wore the brace to the dance.”

Flower Girl Gone Bad - Behind The Awkwardness

Flower Girl Gone Bad

“This was my uncle’s wedding back in 1980. I had agreed to be the flower girl and did a perfect run through in rehearsal. What I didn’t expect was the doors to the ceremony opening and 500 people all standing and turning to look at me. Check out my epic pout. I REFUSED to stroll down the aisle. My sweet grandma is the one leaning over telling me to sneak through a side aisle and sit with my grandpa. The mother of the bride is behind me, probably ready to strangle me.”

Baseball Picture Day - Kids

Baseball Picture Day

“It rained on our scheduled Pony League baseball photo day, but rather than reschedule photos for a more suitable day, the photographer decided to power forward and move things indoors … or more specifically, set up the shots in the messy, drab, completely inappropriate pavilion next to the field. So instead of home plate, there’s now a dirty crumpled up paper towel at my feet. A picnic table doubles as the catcher, and the only thing the concrete wall in the background is stopping is my shadow. Due to a lack of space (or concern on the photgrapher’s part), 4 1/2 players from my team are shown patiently waiting their turn. Hopefully I still sold the batting stance with a steely look of determination in my eyes to distract from the photo’s numerous shortcomings. None of this even takes into account my era-appropriate mesh cap, messy (non-cleat) sneakers, unhinged stirrups over my socks, and crumpled hiked-up pants. It was the perfect storm of awkward youth sports photography.”

Eyes Up Here - Christmas

Eyes Up Here

“My sisters and I thought it would be a nice Christmas present for our parents if we had a professional portrait taken of all our families. But the children were too young, and there were too many of them to get them all to look at the camera (much less smile) at the same time. The adults turned out good though.”
