Awkwardness is something everyone will have to deal with at some point in their lives; the trouble, is knowing how to handle it. Some might suggest shying away from the difficult situation, though this is a missed opportunity. Embrace it for all it's worth because you never know when another awkward or embarrassing situation will come around again, and it might be an experience lost.

And awkwardness abounds in the photos uploaded onto our website of the day - Awkward Family Photos. Bemused looks, dubious attire and odd scenarios are all the order of the day in this gallery of snaps, though we're sure any one of us could probably add to the content if we looked through enough old albums.

As well as this, it also happens to be a bit of a double feature as the long-running site has now added an awkward family pets section, which is a little lighter on content, but holds a few gems within.

Take a look through, a pray you don't see yourself gracing the pages.
