    This looks like something out of a Stanley Kubrick film… CREEPY!

  2. Hax says:

    In all fairness the baby looks cute…

  3. CG13 says:

    Adorable baby! Cute idea, I would’ve probably just done it for Halloween, not get a photo taken personally.

  4. Leghound says:

    If they had lost the stick on noses this would become a treasured heirloom

  5. Michelle says:

    Awwwwww! So cute

  6. Michelle says:

    Awwww! So cute!

  7. Alex says:

    at least the baby seems genuinely happy

  8. Raquel says:

    Animal costumes WITH matching outfits … family photo GOLDMINE!

  9. tillman says:

    bear with me…..

  10. Jolene says:

    I love the caption

  11. Kandee says:

    Although you couldn’t pay me enough to pose like this, it is one of the most awkwardly cute photos I’ve seen. Baby is just precious and the parents look so happy.

  12. Ali says:

    The baby looks super happy! LOL @ the comments… this post brought out the best material apparently.

  13. Laggard says:

    poor guy, he should put his foot down

  14. sus says:

    This reminds me of a song my dad always used to sing: The Teddy Bears’ Picnic.: If you go out in the woods today, you better go in disguise.

  15. Emma says:

    Aw that’s cute. The baby is so adorable, and the dad is a great sport, because you can tell he doesn’t want to be there that much.

  16. Tim says:

    Wait…those aren’t bears…those are EWOKS! RUN!!

  17. Desi says:

    No way…

  18. lololola says:

    do the photographers suggest these ideas? or do the parents think them up? either way, the baby looks adorable… mom looks unnervingly reeeeeeally into it… and dad looks a little sedated.

  19. CG says:

    baby reminds me of an Ewok. And now I can’t get the image of that stupid Ewok dance at the end of the movie out of my head……….

  20. Bernardo says:

    Varmint, Millie get me my compund bow!

  21. Rugerman says:

    I’d be worried that Ted Nugent was behind the camera.

  22. emm says:

    i dunno, they kinda look like donnie and marie…

  23. Rosie says:

    OK, Is it just my imagination, or does the Daddy bear look a little bit like Donny Osmond? Just sayin’ is all.

  24. Wicky says:

    omg that baby is adorable

  25. JazzyJeff says:

    OMG that cuddly bear family has people masks on!

  26. Joellyn says:

    It is cute though.

  27. Maya B says:

    Looks like daddy got shot with a little bear tranquilizer just before the photo sitting.

  28. Becky says:

    Whose idea was it to dress up like that?? Seriously??

    • Bonni says:

      You can tell it’s the baby’s idea . . . the baby looks totally pleased that it has manipulated his/her parents into doing this.

  29. Joanne says:

    Wow the vests/bib even say who they-look closely-they are monogrammed. All they need is Goldilocks! Oh wait, they don’t like Goldilocks! She’s breaking and entering while they are at the photographers!

  30. Shannon says:

    This scares me not the other one.

  31. Jenany says:

    Aww, how awkwardly adorable!

  32. Nora says:

    Dad: Don’t send it! All my workmates will make fun about me!
    Mum: Yeah but everybody will tell us how cute our baby is!!

  33. laughing_hard says:

    It’s usually people in suits behind the camera trying to get the baby to smile…

  34. rwblake says:

    Why is the Father looking in a different direction than the Mother and Baby?

  35. Denise says:

    The bow is a nice touch. Every bear deserves to feel pretty.

  36. Binky says:

    This one just makes me happy. Would I ever do this? Absolutely not. Am I glad they did? Positively so!

  37. Rachel says:

    Cute, such great parents to do this!

  38. Crytal says:

    Love this photo! I really like Dad’s “How you doin’!” expression!

  39. Sam says:


  40. princessluceval says:

    Aw. Not awkward. Very cute. Baby’s adorable, Mom’s cute with her dimples, and Dad looks like he’s there because he loves the two others and is a great sport.

  41. Lily says:

    Actually, that’s pretty cute.

  42. Kate says:

    This is awkward, but also sweet. Mom and Dad look happy, and the baby is adorable. I proclaim this photo Awkwardly Sweet!

    • sunworshipper says:

      I don’t think dad is that happy about this photo. That smile is him thinking about how mom will be making this up to him later. His eyes seem glazed over, in a far-away place.


      I agree, they are an adorable family. It’s a really dorky idea, but look at Mama Bear beaming with pride!!

      She’s cute enough to get away with it, and she’s probably a really fun mom.

  43. Pippa says:

    Lol this is actually really cute!

  44. Tocsnai says:

    Who decided on the matching vest/smock/bib aspects of these costumes? Are those sewn from a picnic blanket the bears are meant to have filched?

    I adore that this photo studio has the whole “Dad, Mom, Baby” set, at any rate, to pose in front of its “birches in fall” backdrop.

  45. msumissa says:

    So is Goldilocks the Au Pair, that momma bear has to watch out for?

  46. Andy says:

    Complete with painted noses.

  47. letsroll says:

    Two more and each of the Van Helsings would have something to shoot.

  48. MB says:

    Papa bear said “This is much too awkward” Mamma Bear said “Not awkward enough” and Baby bear said ” This is just right”

  49. michelle says:

    haha awkward, but so cute!

  50. laurie says:

    Meanwhile, their house is getting broken in to.

    They will return to find their meal, chairs and beds all in complete disarray!

    All they’ll have left is the bear suits on their back. And this photo to cherish…forever.

  51. Kitten says:

    Having said that… that is one freakin’ CUTE baby!

  52. mebinger says:

    Seriously. I just wanna pinch his little chubby bear cheeks.

  53. Susan E says:

    Baby is clearly amused. Even at that young age, baby knows this photo is destined for AFP.

  54. inoges says:

    mama is ok also!!

  55. Steve says:

    I agree! I was thinking the same thing and how I would dress up as a bear if it would make a kid smile like that too.

  56. Steve says:

    I was thinking the same thing and also how I would dress like a bear too if it made a kid smile that big. :-)
