you find it strange when pubescent teenage girls take professional pictures with little girls they babysit?
She is a close family friend, in my defense.
I've heard of that website for awkward family photos, but this photo reaches beyond all awkwardness.
It's bad in so many ways.
First off, why are we holding fresh cut sunflowers?
Second, gotta love the window pane backdrop.
Now for the labeled points of awkwardness:
a. classic triangle hairdo with rounded curling iron edges
b. maroon colored lipstick from mom's collection, I'm sure
d. unruly eyebrows.
(no wonder the vietnamese lady said to me when I was getting my wedding nails done, "you eyebrows BUSHY....very, very bushy.")
e. hand woven aztec-y belt
gag me with a spoon.
speaking of gagging, I just showed my husband this photo from the forgotten archives, and I think he gagged a little too. Then closed his eyes, and shook his head almost as though to shake it from his memory all together. bless him.
The good thing is that the darling little girl saves the photo.
And even better than that, she just got more and more darling with time.
Here she is as a Senior.
She lives in Virginia, but I got to take pictures for her during a short visit to California.
And speaking of California.
I am coming up to the greatest place in California....
