Being a scrapbooker, photos are a big part of family life (although, if the truth be told, less so now that the kids are teens and not so willing to pose, or even be snapped from a distance – they seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to a lens pointed at them) so when I found this site,, I knew it was perfect for a SSE.

From the About Us section:

Childhood friends Mike and Doug began the blog after Mike saw an awkward vacation photo hung in his parents’ house. Realizing there were probably plenty of other people out there with their own awkward family images, the two friends decided to create a friendly place where everyone could come together and share their uncomfortable family moments.

A goldmine of odd moments from other people’s lives.

One that totally made me LOL is this one – check out the last pane…is that chile TAPED to the window??

And this is why I don’t even bother to try to stage a photo – all mine are likely to come out like this!
