‘This is me in 3rd grade (1985). I loved Garfield, so I have a picture of him on my glasses. My mother cut my hair. The sweater around my shoulders makes me look sophisticated and fashionable.”

Recreating The Awkwardness

“My family, then & now: 1982 – 2014…Couldn’t find tube-socks for the re-shoot! We had the furniture scattered around the house and in storage, so, I gathered it up and attempted to rearrange it as closely as possible. The cat had since died of old age, so hence the stuffed one.”

Lollipop Lollipop - Behind The Awkwardness

Lollipop Lollipop

“11:15PM. I’m brushing my teeth before bed and I hear a strange noise coming from Aaliyah’s room. I open her door and turn on the light to see her run towards her bed, lay down and pretended she was sleeping. Meanwhile there were about 20 unwrapped lollipops (don’t know how she got the bag) laying around her room, and one still in her hand (as she lay there ‘sleeping’. It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. The fake sleeping with evidence in her hand was priceless.”

Cruise Control - Behind The Awkwardness

Cruise Control

“This is my EPIC family on a cruise in 97′.. my sister is the clock work orange girl and my brother thought he was 2pac although, we grew up in the suburbs..(well he might still think he is straight outta Compton)… My mothers pants.. need I say more? God rest her soul… and we also found Waldo that day (aka my dad).. Not that I’m a saint in my tapered jeans. However, any time my husband questions my sanity.. I pull this bad boy out and am immediately forgiven, having hailed from such a troubled past, I’m not all that bad!!!!!”
