Why is it that when we're at our most defenseless and socially awkward -- our early teen years -- so many pictures are taken of us? It seems cruel, especially because the worst of them are usually displayed on mantles or sent to family friends in annual holiday cards -- only, years later, to go viral on the internet. No matter who you become, they're an indelible reminder that you were once dorky. Because you were a teenager, however, you can always blame the awful sweater you had to wear on your parents or the braces on genetics; dorky parents are another matter. They are forever.
Awkward photographer timing.
Awkward hand placement.
Awkward costumes. And why is Mom the naughty bunny?
Awkward compound bows.
This isn't a family photo, but it's just wrong.
