  11. Brewster says:

    Why is the couch pulled away from the wall? What’s awkward is that they kept that carpet till 1999.

      Yes, I can imagine that they have a wall full of framed pictures, exactly like this, with different guests seated on the edge of the couch. 8^)

    This reminds me of the Korean family picture. Similar, but different.

  18. BK says:

    Love the super-posed picture of one of the kids on a photo studio bicycle behind them… Looks like they have a long and storied history of awkward photos to live up to…

    Embarrassed about being the only member of your family not in a wheel chair? Sofa shots are the answer!

  20. FunNanc says:

    The others were late — but the photographer wasn’t about to wait around.

    This was the early generation of the really big furniture pictures we saw a couple of weeks back.

  29. Marcus says:

    I am so glad I got to see this. I know for a fact it was professionally done. What I don’t know is if this was the career breaker.

      If you had also mentioned β€œcompound bow,” your comment would be a perfect idiot’s quote.

      • Catherine says:

        Ahhhhhhhhhh, if this wasn’t our old lit teacher I would say that the parents were little people, and they just put the daughter on the couch so she didn’t look like a giant!

  36. Pamela says:

    she’s royalty…and these are her loyal subjects, perhaps? πŸ™‚

    Whether by wearing fushia on blue day or sitting on the couch, once again, Marsha was being the rebel in the family.

    why is the lighting so fantastic? it looks pro.

    “i’ll pretend Im in your family, but I wont sit beside any of you”

  44. Amice says:

    This is cute, because they were trying to avoid the awkwardness of flat-against-the-wall perspective that often happens with home portraits. But it’s an awkward landmine, isn’t it?

  45. Christel says:

    that is hilarious!

  46. 12gager says:

    I guess we know who runs that house.

  47. Ummmm......Greg says:

    You’d be amazed what falls through the cushions

    what are they sitting on? they opted to stand behind the couch to draw your attention up to those awesomely stylish curtains.

  49. Steve says:
