Our Little Angel

Surrender

“Our perfect family photo shoot was only a little hampered by my 2 year old granddaughter who decided to throw a complete fit during the sitting. We gave up trying to get her to look good and let her ‘do her own thing.’ She ended up at the bottom of the stairs and we went on without her…so to speak.”

The Rookie

“My sister’s family went to a theme park in NC and she decided her youngest was ready for his 1st roller coaster ride. Apparently, she was wrong and he takes after her. Everyone thinks this is photo shopped because her husband and the other 2 kids are so calm. She tries to ease her conscience by telling everyone it was a kiddie coaster but I’m pretty sure he’s scarred for life.”

Boss Baby

“My great-grandmother worked for a photography studio in the 80’s. She was watching us one day and decided to surprise my mother with professional photos of the three of us. This gem was one of the pictures. It’s safe to say that my mother never put this one in a photo frame and it’s the center of family laughter when we bring out the photo albums around the holidays. I love how my sisters look so cute in the corner of the photo while I am in a food coma floating in the sky.”

The Letter A

“When I met my year old niece for the first time I thought it would be nice if she and her sister would take pictures with my son. Needless to say that it didn’t go so well. They kept asking if we wanted a re-shoot but these were way too priceless to get rid of.”

Barbie Arm

“We took this picture at a friend’s wedding. It wasn’t until after I posted it and people started making comments about my husband’s ‘Barbie Arm’ did we notice how his arm had ‘shrunk’…”

Break Something

“This is a picture of my breakdancing club. It’s origins are from Bellerose Queens, NY.  It’s the late 1980s when breakdancing was a thing.  If this doesn’t qualify as awkward IDK what does.”

Big Fish

“Just what every kid recovering from an elbow reconstruction wants: a huge promotional fish from Long John Silvers stopping by with a care package of coloring supplies and I can’t remember what else. The early 90s were a strange time.”
