“So, I got bored with the typical holiday cards and decided to do something a little different. At first, my ideas were pretty innocent (we wore Santa hats, reindeer antlers,etc), but as the years passed and my ideas became more and more unusual, I realized people loved it. I have heard from many “fans” that their extended families, friends, and neighbors start checking in early in December to see if the Johnson card has arrived and what I’ve come up with for that year.”

Thank you to Hilary & Dan for representing Awkward Family Pet Photos at the Spirit of 76 bookstore in Marblehead, Massachussetts!
“My loving mother (the one on the sled) thought it would be a wonderful photo opportunity to have ballerina pig costumes hand-made for us all. My sister Adellie (in front) and I were firmly instructed to look as though we were having a jolly good time as we pretended to push our Mommy through the snow. I recall crying a lot during this photo-shoot. And the answer is yes, we were forced to wear these on Halloween and yes, it was on our Christmas card that year.”
