This is why you don’t put the pregnant lady up top.

Getting Pregnant Awkwardly.
i’m thinking peppermint patty grown up. snoozed her way thru school, and now…
Hysterical! Peppermint Patty!
She probably fell asleep waiting for the rest of the family to take their places.
“This is how Joey learned he was going to be a dad ….”
um… how on earth do you know she’s pregnant? doesn’t look it to me, you can’t see her stomach! …how dumb.
When you submit pictures, there’s a section to explain the photos. The submitter likely wrote that, or explained she was pregnant and fainted.
How come allll seven of the kids look the same? I figure this is an extended family, but still….how so alll of them have the same looks?! 😉
She’s like one of those goats, the flash startled her. Give her a heads up next time people, sheesh.
Does anyone else notice that the little boy (third from right on bottom row) looks like his got a black eye???
I’m pretty sure no tie is sticking his tongue out in the fainting shot.
Is this some sort of preppy tribe? I bet Bearded Guy feels so out of place at all the family functions.
That’s why he and his wife are standing abreast in this preppy picture palace, while everyone else is all smooshing in, smooshing the air right out of poor Pregnant Priscilla!
“And that’s a wrap! Nice work everyone!”
Why is everyone so interested in the fainting woman? I would have thought the more important issue, is WHAT IS THAT CHILD ON THE LEFT DOING TO THE BABY!?
I’m guessing nothing good, from the baby’s expression…
You are so right. I didn’t even notice.
Looks like the woman is holding the girl’s hands to stop her from sucking her thumb (which she was doing in the top photo).
Before I scrolled down and saw the second shot I thought “faint” was describing the haze on this photo. But, then I saw the second shot and couldn’t stop laughing.
Maybe the guy on the right had a tie and then used it….hmmmm. Scary how he just doesn’t move. That’s really kinda creepy! Bless her heart though…pregnancy can make u feel just awful at times, and what an aweful time to feel like that! Hope she recovered fairly quickly! Was just kidding bout the tie btw…
well none of their expressions changed did they?! I just scrolled back up and looked again. That really is kinda wierd…I would think that they would have looked over at her or the husband would have felt her go limp and that would have caused some kind of movement or commotion!
I actually had this happen when I worked for Olan Mills. It was during the christmas rush. I was posing a huge family and one of the ladies was pregnant. She fainted and we had to call 911. Since she did it in the studio and was bleeding we couldn’t move her until the emts arrived. It set me back over an hour.
Olan Mills, huh? So I guess they didn’t get a discount.
The pregnant lady passes out on the floor and is bleeding from the head and all you’re concerned about is your schedule. Nice.
I wasn’t concerned. I actually stayed with her and held her hand and cleaned up the blood. I had about 50 irate people in the waiting room screaming at me. Some even came back to the studio and asked when was I getting back to work
You should have showed them the bloody lady on the floor and told them that’s what happens to people who scream at the photographer. “Okay, then- who was next?”
ROTFL!! Excellent reply to the judgemental comment!
HA!!! “Now GET BACK IN LINE….all of you!!!”
No, this is not the Duggars.
“One of these things is not like the other.” Not only does the black sheep of the family not shave, he refuses to wear a tie, and he is the only one who doesn’t smile. I find him more awkward than the poor lady who fainted.
Can this picture BE any darker? Did the photographer thinking lighting wasn’t necessary?
is that the duggard family?
here we go again. Karen desperately trying to get attention…
Please note the expression of the guy in the back row, second from the right; rather, note that it doesn’t change at all between photos.
Imagine the work this photographer could do if he owned a lighting set.
Why would anyone even PAY for a portrait like that? Oh, yeah, so it can be submitted to Awkward Family Photos! Duh!!!!
Nah, sje’s just getting ready to sneeze a big juicy one right on Grandma’s head.
Is this the Duggar family?
She really did faint. The guy on her left is her husband. (i know because I read her blog)
At first I thought this was a Duggan family publicity shot now that the first “Grand Duggan” has been born…
Awesome that no one is noticing her head thrown back – not even the two propping her up.
Is this the Duggars?
Surely she didn’t actually faint or someone would be doing something about it, right?
i think she’s saying, “take that dang picture already….geez…how many times do we have to do a retake???”
I used to be the center of attention in this family! Then all these pesky grand kids came along. Hmmm
In addition to that, check out the awkwardly coordinated outfits… nearly symmetrical. How weird is that?
Another strange call by the photographer. Obviously this one wasn’t even worth printing – why even keep the photo and give it to the family? Like they’re going to choose the second one to frame and put on their wall, right? Sheesh.
Maybe the guy in the back is just a ventriloquist.
Not gonna lie, that made me laugh.
The weird thing is no one notices she seems to be in trouble! Gotta get the shot!
Perhaps there was something really interesting on the ceiling.
Or she was just gargling for minty fresh breath!
I think it’s funny how there are a whole bunch of infants and toddlers, but hardly any kid older than that (except the girl on the top left). It’s like nobody in the family had any kids for 20 years and then BAM, a family baby boom. 🙂
ummm – isn’t that the way things seem to go? I’m the oldest and my youngest sibling was 17 when my oldest was born.
i’m still the youngest in my family and i’m 22! i’m also the only girl and none of the cousins’ wives or girlfriends are expecting!
At first I thought the babies were acting funny…then I saw her neck.
The only adult not smiling is the guy without the tie. I wonder if he didn’t get the memo about the expected portrait attire and is feeling badly about it?
They don’t call Connie the “human Pez® dispenser for nothing.”
Funny how her head direction dictates the mood for the guys to either side of her. Up, guy on right is happy; back, guy on left.
I love the way the guy next to her knows there is a crisis, but doesn’t dare break the pose. He has completely lost his smile, but continues to look into the camera as he holds her slumping body.
That’s exactly what I thought, too. He looks concerned, and holds her up, but why continue looking at the camera unless maybe he’s about to say, “Um, hey, guys, we have a bit of a problem here!” But they look like a terrific family, anyway. I’ll bet holidays are a blast for them.
i just scrolled up to see it and i LAUGHED OUT LOUD!!!
What’s more disturbing is that the gentleman on her left whose shoulder she’s practically fallen onto HASN’T broken his smile, and one wonders if and how he hasn’t noticed! Crazy.
I noticed that too! Like they’re trying to stay natural and hopefully no one will notice that the woman between them has lost consciousness.
“Meanwnile at the annual Thanksgiving Day family portrait. The Versed that was slipped into Aunt Marney’s Kalua kicked in just as med student Lisa Byron predicted.”
I love that after she fainted, the guy on her right finally cracked a huge smile! “Ha! Bernice is finally dead! Now I can finally be Mom’s favorite!”
I like that no one else reacted either.
no tie GUY, that is
I immediately think that no tie towards the right had something to do with it!
Hey, I know the guy to her right! I feel the same kind of pseudo-famous I feel when my home town gets mentioned in the news.
I know EXACTLY what you mean.
After years of marital bliss, tension enters the Smith household as they recieve their anual family gathering picture whilst having breakfast.
“I just looked amazing, and you had to ruin THAT one with your water breaking!” shouted Kevin after spilling his coffee.
Are we looking at the same photo?
i dont think that they’re looking at the same one as we are dono….
Hm, use your imagination, guys 😛
Coming to theatres this winter.. a comedy they are dieing for you to see!
“Weekend at Bernies 7 – Til death do us part”
Who says that love is dead? We do and you will too!
Your lead-up is way better than Weekend at Bernie’s 2 was.
I really wish WaB2 was a better movie… I was at Megan’s Bay that day, when they filmed them dragging Bernie (a dummy actually) out of the ocean with the arrow through his head and then trying to catch the donkey cart. Saw them do each bit about a half-dozen times. The camera never quite panned far enough to include me in the shot though…
It looks like her neck couldn’t support all the weight of her hair for very long.
That comment made me laugh so hard I’m crying!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA
No wonder she felt a bit woozy! Look at all those people! She was probably claustrophobic!
In the middle of a crowd like that, it was probably more a case of agoraphobia!
After the 15th photo attempt, each time spoilt by someone with their eyes closed or not smiling or something like that…. “Oh JEEEEZ. TAKE THE FRICKEN PHOTO ALREADY”
That’s what I was thinking!
