The Flockers - Mom

“My mom and I got our photos done, notice the Native American influence in the hair beading. With all the feathers we look like roosters. Moms expression lets you know shes thinking cock-a-doodle-doo!”

Green Day - Behind The Awkwardness

Green Day

“When I was 17 my parents thought it would be a good idea to take us all to pose for one of those glamour shots. This photo would of been a lot more awkward had I been allowed to wear my own make-up though maybe the glamour make-up and heavy air brushing adds to the uncomfortable.”

“To be honest with you, I never thought of this as an awkward photo until recently. Really though, I’m not completely sold on it being awkward at all just because I have a mullet, my cats are wearing ties, and I’m wearing a jacket with no shirt on.”

The Showman - Family Portrait

The Showman

“Just an old family photo that many of us and our friends can’t stop looking at… we were visiting our grandparents in Mass, coming from PA.  So of course we had to take a family photo and of course my older brother was wearing a “Thriller” half shirt.  I keep asking myself, did they really sell those?  I am the one on the right… with a sweatshirt/short combo that almost looks like a one piece outfit. ”

“I acknowledge that my arms look disproportionately huge in this photo, like I’m some oddly shaped monkey child. Awkwardness forever.”

The End Of The Innocence - Easter

The End Of The Innocence

“During school picture time at my kids’ daycare, they always do the younger kids on the first day and the older kids on the second day. What they didn’t tell me is that they would be doing sibling photos together on the first day. As such, the baby was dressed for her photo, and my son was dressed in a car show t-shirt, sweatpants, and Spider-Man shoes. Add to this the psychotic faux bunnies, crazy backdrop, and the photographer assistant’s head poking in from the right-hand side, and you have the perfect storm of awkwardness.”
