The Aristocrats

“At a family friends home for Thanksgiving dinner who deals in high end antiques for a living. So under a c.1500s painting and sitting on an Empire era sofa, my boyfriend casually had his arm around our jack russell with the hosts yorkie on his lap. I thought it would make a very sweet photo so snapped the picture just as our dog attempted to nail the yorkie. Both immediately jumped off the couch. We really weren’t sure what happened til we looked at the photo.”

Behind The Awkwardness: The Birds

“This is a picture of my mom and a bird we had rescued from Six Flags when he was a baby and fell out of his nest. This was his first flight, and we were so proud of him for flying on his own outside. He suddenly flew onto my mom’s shoulder, and, as you can tell, she was not so pleased.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Groundhog Day

“Being seemingly forever single and having recently moved to Indiana from Virginia, I had these pictures taken for Christmas cards but missed getting them in the mail so I did the next best thing. Groundhog’s day! Unfortunately, I can’t spell and I was making up the cards myself and got it wrong. About 50 went out to my friends, family, and co-workers.”

Behind The Awkwardness: Cat Fancy

“This is my Mom and Dad before they were married and had kids, the bank my dad was a customer at was having some kind of promotion where you could get a family portrait taken.  He had no family so he asked if he could bring his girlfriend and his cats.  I was told the cats got loose in the bank after they took the picture.”
