    definitely what is awkward is all the gorgeous genes… some families have all the luck

    I’d like to download this picture and photoshop myself in it and put it in a frame and display it in my house because I want to be a part of this group.

    Poor kid born, with “Highly Magnetic Head Syndrome”.

  5. Lacie says:

    Im not sure that I would call this pic awkward…I actually think it’s kinda cute. Not to mention everyone is so damn good looking!!!!

  6. Modine says:

    Kids, if you’re going to try this yourselves at home, you should have the girls with long hair
    consider a pony tail.

  7. KyGirl says:

    It’s super-awkward that they are all gorgeous! Every family has an “ugly duckling”…wonder if the “duckling” is taking the picture.

    “Okay Steve, you get…well you stand…umm…stand behind the camera. Yeah, umm you’re a good photographer, so…we really need you to take this picture!” Steve: “Really? I’ve taken the pictures for the last 7 years since cousin Mike lost his other eye. Can’t I be in the picture this time?” “No Steve, we really need you take the picture. This one’s going on my facebook and I can’t have you….I mean, I need you…to take the picture!”

    Shiny happy people holding hands
    Shiny happy people holding hands
    Shiny happy people laughing

    (REM song stuck in my head, oh God make it stop)

    Hopefully no one has lice.

  10. Liz says:

    Poor little baby:D

    • Patty says:

      I think it’s sweet (albit awkward-sweet), look at all the people that are around to adore that baby! I bet she’ll be a year and a half old until the mother gets to hold her!

  11. wendym says:

    The only problem I have with this is, what if someone tripped or slipped? Especially someone on the “outter ring” of people…that’d be one smooshed baby!

  12. Laurie says:

    This is my favorite family photo so far! I could look at these gorgeous people all day!

  13. Cee says:

    There’s so many people, so close together, that it’s hard to tell where one starts and the other begins.. perhaps they aren’t individuals people, but a giant many-headed monster?

  14. MS says:

    It must be hard to be humble when you’re this good-looking!

  15. Nyria says:

    This is what happens when you get that many good looking people in one family – they all want to be in every picture ;)

  16. Maya B says:

    This photo is making me feel terribly claustrophobic…

  17. chris says:

    not awkward. cool!

  18. springjack says:

    Twenty years later, that baby will drop fifteen grand on therapy because of “these dreams where I’m surrounded by disembodied heads!”

  19. kandee says:

    Good grief – this pic actually made me dizzy! They remind me of a litter of something – I’m just not sure what.

  20. jnmcnally says:

    Did someone say Uncle Bob had swine flu?

  21. Dawn says:

    Baby Jesus wasn’t as Excited to see the “Up with People” group as they were to see him.

  22. Cross Photoshopped Bow says:

    Totally Photoshopped (babies head is an infant Shirley Temple) using crossbow techniques.

  23. Patty says:

    Well, the parents certainly weren’t hurting for potential godparent choices, that’s for sure!

  24. ali says:

    we were very squeezed in that day small room lots of people! we had to pile on to each other!

  25. Julie says:

    Now I know what to do for my next family photo…

  26. grimey says:

    right…right…they’re all so loving and close now…just wait till the parents need a babysitter!

  27. Jan says:

    Aww, I think it’s cute!

  28. Jenany says:

    @Maureen: It’s totally photoshopped!!! KIDDING ;-p
    I am somewhat of a germaphobe so I would *never* let so many people get in my baby’s face .. family or no family!

  29. Bet says:

    Actually, this is rather sweet, save for the dingbat who forgot to move the drycleaning.

  30. jemmy says:

    That is one rockin’ headpile!

  31. Jessica says:

    I think the weirdest person in this pic is the guy in the back with the blue shirt, it looks like he’s trying to sneak a nap in on that girl’s back

    • mel says:

      no no the guy in the blue shirt was the one taking the picture and then he photoshopped himself in later ;o)…. in case you were all missing the photoshop comment from someone…lol

      • Jessica says:

        sneaky sneaky! You can tell because his hair is lighter than everyone else’s! (we needed a really lame explanation as well)

    • Peter says:

      i submitted this photo. Nobody was photoshopped in! Our mom took this photo and made us all get around the baby. This is actually like the 20th take we had of this photo. It started off with just 2 people and then we kept calling in everyone who was missing. Finally got everyone in the pic!

  32. Jett says:

    The Brady Bunch, meets the Partridges and Jon & Kate + 8.

  33. jay says:

    good looking family!

  34. MCR says:

    “Is your camera’s Face Detection working?”

  35. Julie says:

    I’m more worried about the older little one, he looks like he’s getting squished pretty good, the baby actually seems to have it pretty good down there, the pillow is acting as a bit of a buffer, and she has the most space out of anyone!! lol

  36. Shrimp says:

    OMG! I didn’t see the baby!!

  37. mamasarita says:

    poor non Italian looking guy, pushed to the back.

    My guess is the little girl will be blond…

  38. john says:

    That’s an awesome family photo!

  39. ME says:

    I don’t find this awkward. Just incredibly sweet! Except the poor little boy towards the middle is like..”What the ??”

  40. Stephanie says:

    big group/small room still I find it adorable!

  41. Suki says:

    “hey I’m down here…how come nobody is paying attention to me?”

  42. Nicole says:

    The dry cleaning hanging in the background really adds a special touch…

  43. Maureen says:

    A great family picture. Let’s see how many people call this photoshopped.

  44. Melly says:

    too many faces, it creeps me out a little!

  45. FavaBean says:

    They’re having fun celebrating the addition to their great-looking family. Awkward: not.

    • Lou says:

      Well, I think what’s considered awkward here is the pose and how uncomfortable it must have been for some of them to hold it.

      That said, I totally agree with you and the others: That’s a shocking number of great-looking people all in one family!!! And they seem to even exude a “nice” vibe, too. Wow.

  46. killer kate says:

    Oh my gosh, that is so cute!!

  47. colleen says:

    The baby looks quite calm about all this, like it knows there are many more awkward photos to come and is accepting the fact already. It also already seems to know it’s entered a madhouse.

    Having said that, this is still kind of cute.

  48. LMNOP says:

    *In the voice of the Count from Sesame Street* I count 15! 15 awkward! A-ah-ah!

    • Denise says:

      I count 16, including the baby. That’s my final answer. But I think they could’ve squeezed at least 12 more people in if they tried a little harder.

  49. Tricia says:

    I feel bad for who ever took this picture… I can just see the conversation with another family member.

    Yah this is everyone… well excluding Jon.
    Make you wish there was a mirror in the bad to make it Really awkward!

  50. wvufan says:

    These people are alarmingly good looking.
