Awkward Family Photos was launched by Mike Bender and Doug Chernack in April 2009, with the mission of celebrating those uncomfortable family moments we all share and encouraging people to laugh at themselves. The hit website has received millions of visits, drawn submissions from families around the world, sold nearly half a million books and calendars, and earned archival status at the Library of Congress as an important cultural artifact.
