Slippery Slope - Behind The Awkwardness

Slippery Slope

“Here I am 3 years old.  My parents thought it would be cute to take my picture.  Yes that is a fur coat, snow man with 2 pennies for eyes and Pee-Wee Herman waiting for me at the bottom of the slide.  I promise a  I’m half way normal woman now.”

Recreating The Awkwardness

“As a Christmas gift for the in-laws my husband and I decided to re create his 1976 former communist Poland baptism photo.  My husbands grandmother was a seamstress and sewed the polyester suit that little B is wearing and of course adorned it for his special day.  Unfortunately he was still not happy- after many tries this was the happiest shot they could get out of him!”

“I thought it would be great to ring in the new year by volunteering & supporting the Albany Allstars Roller Derby (un-finished) calendar project back in 2011. I really did use this as an awkward (yet endearing, I hope!?) Seasons Greetings family card!”

Neighbors - Behind The Awkwardness

Neighbors

“I am not certain how or why this picture took place since I was the youngest  (being held by the ninja). However, I have been told that the ninja was in fact our neighbor, what I question is why my sisters and I were such willing participants. Hey, mom and dad- why didn’t you tell us about “stranger danger?”

Thank You For Not Smoking

“My dad had a last minute idea to add a prop to our family photo.  He saw the photographer had cigarettes and decided that everyone in the photo should have one.  I am the red head bottom right with my eyes rolled up.”
