Marking His Territory

“This picture was taken in July 2012 for my daughter’s 3 month photos. We decided to let the dog join us, and my daughter was supposed to rest on the his side, but it looks like the he’s about to pee on her. My son is just miserable, and his popped Polo collar makes him look like he has stud earrings.”

Slice Of Life

“In 1991 my dad opened a pizza shop called Lotsa Motsa Pizza. Before he opened the doors to the shop we had our family photos with the pizza shirts and lots of pizza.”

Stairway To Awkward Christmas Photos

“This was our joint family Christmas photo at the lake between my family and my mom’s sister’s family. We decided this staircase leading down to the lake would be the perfect spot for our family photo. We spent 30 minutes setting up the camera with it’s self-timer about 30 feet away from the staircase. I personally ran back and forth about 20 times. During the set-up, the two families waited on the staircase getting more and more impatient. There was yelling and pushing. It was a lovely time. Once it was ready for the photo, we all lined up and of course switched at least 2 times each with other people in the line to get the line up perfect. Then we all sucked in as not to have our stomachs touch the person in front of us and we forced a smile as we waited for the self-timer to go off. The pictures lasted for another 15 minutes and I had to run back and forth to check them and change the angle. Once I felt we had enough and it looked like everyone’s eyes were open, we called it quits. This picture is the best of the bunch. You’re welcome.”

Why I Hate Clowns

“I’m not sure what’s going on here. I only remember that we went to the photo studio because there was some kind of special.”

He’s #1

“Picture taken in 2019. Took our little man to have his newborn pictures taken. While we both look so peaceful, there he is flipping the bird. The photographer didn’t even notice it. Apparently he hates taking pictures, just like his Dad.”

Kathy’s Birthday Blowout

“These are my parents posing for a shot during my extremely festive family birthday party. Don’t they look excited?”

“Our Aunt Helen made these for the three of us and while I know she worked very hard on them, I was mortified. That’s me on the left. I’m smiling but my eyes are red from crying because I didn’t want to wear it. The compromise was that I didn’t have to wear the bonnet. I don’t have much of a fashion sense but even then, at a tender young age, I knew this was wrong, very wrong.”
