Awkward Family Photo Contest

The Winner! "My bubby was so happy for us and came up behind me for a kiss on the cheek -- yes on the cheek! This photo was taken by many cameras, but the innocent, affectionate kiss looks rather more awkward from this particular angle." - Adam "don't tell anyone" Zanbilowicz
This is a photo of my parents joyfully photographing my son, who had just been born. You can see me in the background, looking close to death, recovering from the birth (clearly they are very concerned about my wellbeing!). Of course, when the grandchild arrives, nothing else matters. - Carly Hollander
"My wife has very animated expressions, and on occasion a camera catches her making a funny face. Or in the case of the campy bride photo gesturing at the camera, she was fooling around with her brother-in-law who was taking far too many pictures of her on our special day. That pic proved to be too hot for Google+ to handle, and they have 'banned' it." - Jamie Pakos (unfortunately we could not publish the other picture either)
"A very awkward family circa 1995 of Laura, Jessie (me) and Andrea Davies at Oakridge Centre Mall. Yes, those are matching one-pieces! And although the awful poinsettia pattern and lace collars are the most offensive fashion crimes in the photo, I'd like to point out the socks and sandals combo on Laura (left) and my pink hexagon glasses. The very worst thing about this photo is that, as the youngest of the three girls, I had two more poinsettia one-piece pants suits to grow into over the coming years." - Jessica Davies
