“My sister found these in reject pile from a childhood photo shoot, but we think these should really have been chosen for the living room wall.”

Christmas Jazz Hand

“The infamous Christmas photo shoot of 1984.  Dad’s short-shorts and high socks highlighted his fashion-forward attitude and athleticism; my sister’s cheerleading perfection revealed her vow to never look bad in any photo- ever, and my single jazz hand stance complete this Awkward Family Christmas Card from over 30 years ago.”

You Get What You Pay For

“So about 5 Years ago I ran an ad on Facebook asking for an inexpensive photographer to come to my house. I had just had a new baby and wanted some photos of the children. He came and it was a mess from the start. Here’s just a few of the many awkward photos I got back from this man. You get what you pay for.”

Feeding Frenzy

“A lovely picture I drew of me, my cousins, and brother throwing my mother into shark-infested waters. I distinctly remember adding stripes to the shark because I knew tiger sharks were known to be aggressive. This is neatly labeled on the back ‘Sarah: 7 years old’ and lives on my parent’s fridge. To this day, I have no idea why people weren’t more concerned.”
