The Jump Off

“I decided that we should all jump into the pool after our beach photo shoot while in Hilton Head Island, SC. Everyone was excited about the idea. The instructions– kick your legs to your butt so it looks like we’re jumping high (pool wasn’t that deep). Two weeks later we get pics back from photog and my sister looks like she’s being tortured! Her response: ‘Well, I couldn’t figure out how to jump while holding hands! And how in the heck is everyone smiling and looking at the camera?! I look ridiculous.’ Yes, sister, you do. but we still love you.

Holy Cow - Vacation

Holy Cow

“We were visiting her Mimi, who lives in Maine, and this place is located in Hampton Beach, NH. Naturally, when you see a sign with any foul language, and especially when the kid doesn’t know what it is, you must take a photo!”

The Special Request - Behind The Awkwardness

The Special Request

“A few years ago me and my parents went to France. My parents asked me to find a nice hotel. When I found the hotel, under the section where it asks if we have any “special requests” I thought I would make it a bit more entertaining. I told them that we would like pictures of Ostriches framed all over the room us to find and for them to leave bird food to feed the pictures of the Ostriches in case they get hungry. When we walked into our room, I broke down laughing my ass off.”

“Hey girls, stand by your dad while I take a photo! What the hell was my mom looking at when she took this photo? Apparently, not the fact that my dad appears to be naked with 2 little girls next to him!”

The Fall Guy - Behind The Awkwardness

The Fall Guy

“My son and I went on a white water rafting excursion this summer. Clearly I was a bit nervous about going over the 15 foot water fall. I didn’t realize how terrified I looked until this photo was posted by the rafting company back at the store.”

That Guy - Behind The Awkwardness

That Guy

“During the summer of 1989, my BFF and I were staying on the beach with her parents. We were both 16. We spent the morning in the hotel’s pool, where this older man kept watching us and grinning. Later that afternoon, we were dressed and ready to go out, but first we stopped at the Tiki Bar near the pool to take some pics of each other in our totally 80s outfits (yes, I realize my outfit and hair here could absolutely stand alone in their awkwardness, but I digress). Wouldn’t you know, the same older man showed up and stood behind me, still grinning, while my BFF took my picture. I don’t know if he was being truly creepy, or if he was just an odd old guy who got a kick out of the two teenyboppers at the pool and all the giggling we no doubt did, but it sure made for an awkward photo!”
