  2. drlouie says:

    What is that over the mother’s right shoulder? Am I seeing things?

  3. Jason says:

    All the dad needs to complete his look is a can of Milwaukee’s Best.

  4. grannypanties says:

    now that is awkward and weird

  5. HarryManSteak says:

    What you can’t see is the third son and his girlfriend, that grass is pretty tall…

  6. dia says:

    i love it…the parents are a little old fashioned, but the new couples behind them are still in the honeymooners stage…it even looks like there might be a new addition to this family in the near future…how adorable…GOD bless, dia

  7. Tim says:

    This is taking the whole “when are you gonna make us grandparents?” angle to a strange new level…

  8. Diane says:

    and this is where your father was born and your brother was born and your sister was born….and oh here comes another one now!

    It says “submitted by Jenny”. Where’s Jenny? Helloo? I really need help with this one.

  10. Laurie says:

    Good one Jeff…………LOLOLOL

  11. Anna Rexia says:

    Cameras do wacky things with some designs, particularly houndstooth and checks. We once had a local newscaster who would wear the same gawd-awful houndstooth jacket at least once a week. Finally, after thousands of phone calls, someone finally took action. I guess they finally looked at footage of their own newscast. The pattern on her jacket was small houndstooth and it was extremely distracting due to the moving patterns it produced on camera.

    How heteronormative.

  13. Kayla says:

    Maybe it’s supposed to show the progression throughout their relationship…like when they first started dating, then got married and were pregnant, and then now? That’s just a guess that would make this photo seem less bizarre.

    • carol says:

      Right, and this field is where it all happened for them. Makes some kind of crazy sense, but it’s still bizarre. Who’s playing them? Actors, or their kids? No that’s just even more bizarre when you think about it! sigh.

    • The_Other_Sally says:

      They hired strangers. This must be performance art captured on film.

  14. enamy says:

    there’s no way i could do that around my parents. or my boyfriend’s parents… that’s even more awkward.

  15. Stan says:

    I believe that they are in a field of wild oats.

  16. Bernardo says:

    Nice moire, dad!

  17. Snowrider says:

    I have to say however that the woman on the far right looks a lot like Sara Palin.

  18. Snowrider says:

    Am I missing something? Is there an “eye underneath a couch sitter” that I’m not seeing? This photo really lacks a cymbol clash. It’s a nice picture.

  19. Juno says:

    Truly outstanding in their field.

  20. tim says:

    Actually, you know this is kind of touching…

  21. kirk says:

    I’m totally diggin’ dad’s shirt

  22. Dane says:

    “Stand perfectly still, honey. If we don’t move, the zombie face suckers won’t come after us!”

  23. laurie says:

    It’s the Field of Youth. The farther in you go, the younger and more frisky you become.

    • That girl says:

      If you look closely you can see that the second couple is expecting a child. That could explain the arm grasping. And the third couple really is not doing anything that inappropriate.

  24. CarrieMac says:

    The proud parents are going to be grandparents pretty soon.

  25. Oisin says:

    oh man, I totally needed that.. what a laugh

  26. Ben says:

    This photo reminds me of the classic awkward photo of the lovely couple with the amorous donkeys in the background.

  27. binkymae says:

    Photographer – “Ok, now everybody kiss!”
    Dad under his breath to Mom – “I got dressed in matchy match and hiked out in this field, but I’m not doing that!”
    Mom under his breath to Dad – “Could you at least smile for the Christmas card photo?”
    Dad talking through a forced smile – “How much am I paying for this?”

  28. KRG says:

    What’s awkward about this?

  29. Catherine says:

    Why don’t mom and dad get to make out too?

  30. Deb says:

    Creating the next generation…while u wait.

  31. I can’t kiss in the same state as my parents. I’m 30.

  32. Julie K says:

    Due to the tight economy, the Smith family decided to combine the 30th anniversary portrait with the two engagement portraits.

    I can hardly wait to see how they economize on the wedding(s).

  33. Dave says:

    Or, proud parents of four healthy kids.

  34. John says:

    maybe they are the parents of all four….

  35. tunerGeek says:

    I count four kids.

  36. JJ says:

    Dad always told us to play the field.

  37. Maro says:

    Now that’s a strange picture…..

  38. yolinda says:

    Haaahaaa. We are the parents, and we approve this photo…
