Can I still call this a "blog" in 2024?

Awkward, Creepy Holiday Cards From Sears Photo Studio

Update: Our awkward holiday photos have taken on a life of their own on Instagram! See the screenshot at the bottom of this post.

My roommates and I went to Sears Portrait Studio in Santa Monica to get some holiday photos taken. We figured it’d be a fun experience, and then we’d have cards to send out to friends and family for the holidays.

Well, these holiday portraits turned out much better than we’d expected… The photographer did not seem to pick up on any humor or sarcasm. Either that, or he was in on the joke but wanted to stay in character as “dead serious photographer”.

He took his job seriously, trying out lots of different positions and props, and the photos came out even better than we’d expected. The awkward/creepy vibe is perfect.

Make sure there are no small children around before enlarging these photos.

If you know me in real life, keep an eye on your mailbox, as there’s a chance that you received (or will be receiving) one of these in the mail. Again, my apologies. Happy holidays!

A few months after publishing this blog post, my sister told me that a friend shared this Instagram post with her. This is the gift that keeps on giving!

    So truly disturbing. Slightly offended that we didn’t get one in the mail!
