“This is my parents and me at the wedding of one of their friends. I really hated having my picture taken as a child!”
(submitted by AJ)
oh oh.. Who’s the guilty one?
Dad, get your hand off… what is this thing?
yikes, I’m with you kid.
I’m pretty sure Marnie just threatened to put cheese on his green beans. You know how he is about cheese.
LMAO!!! Good one!
Marnie is making history … LMAO …
Hahaha! Marne that’s hilarious!
Katie, this is Ron. Ron and I are going to be married. Ron will be your step-father. Try not to make any sudden movements.
“mom…thats not my daddy.”
I just tooted
This reminds me of the horror movie, The Stepfather.
It’s 2:30 am and I can’t sleep. Maybe I’m more tired than I think because this one hit me so hard I spat a bit of frosted mini-wheat on my monitor.
LOL it’s Sanctuary! Early 80’s photo of Dr. Helen Magnus, little Ashley, and crazy Dr. John Druitt. Awkward photos: one of the little-known side effects of vampire blood injections.
Magnum P.I. has a gun to his back.
Wow, look even at the little girls clenched fists. Someone was nooot happy, LOL.
He kinda looks like he would be a stunt double for Kurt Russell in Tombstone.
*sigh* Dad’s trying to mind meld with the photographer AGAIN…..
The only known childhood photo of Marney who is saying
“Dad – you were supposed to be wearing the blue tie”
Clearly the photographer is naked.
Taylor frowned. Dammit! Dad’s gone catatonic again!
She’s right to keep her eyes on that guy…. REDRUM.
I literally LOL’d! This pic is AWESOME!
this is their halloween or think of your mil look. lol
“What do you mean the large glossy’s cost extra?!”
Only 7 or 8 years old, and she’s already mastered the “Dad’s a dork” eyeroll!
I was thinking the same thing. Those parents are in for it because she’s already got the teen ‘tude down pat.
Yet another sign that younger and younger children are being disrespectful to their parents.
You can see the strings.
Family portrait Weekend at Bernie’s style
Dad could never figure the timer out, so he just used the power of his mid. I am so lucky I am his daughter!
Sorry, the power of his mind
I know it’s impossible but that little girl looks EXACTLY like Maya from The 4400. Anybody else see that show? No? Just me? (“crickets”) OK, then.
She does! Amazing I’ve found one of the three other people who saw that show.
I thought so too…. well, maybe not exactly like her, but I definitely thought “Maya!” when I looked at it!
(Make that 5 people who saw it. My roomie has the DVDs!)
Make that 6, I really liked that show, it sucked that they canceled it!
He’s actually smiling underneath that stash…
Though Bob had been dead nearly 3 years, his widow Belinda insisted that his taxidermied corpse be included in all the family photos. Belinda smiled on as if nothing was amiss, whilst Jenny kept watch on Dad’s glass eyes, waiting for them to blink.
Best comment ever! Sooooo funny!
Jenny is just tired of mom dragging that thing around with her everywhere they go.
She’s actually looking at the Care Bear props she was told she couldn’t hold… (i know this from experience)
“Holiday Greetings from Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau and family”
laughing out loud ! made my dog jump even…best comment tonight !
The little girl has a clenched fist…she must be really PO’d with him!
Actually, I think that IS his poke her face. O_0
All my family photos end up looking similar to this. I love these people!
My guess is he normally blinks when the flash goes off and was told to make sure he doesn’t this time. He may normally wear glasses but took them off for this photo (there seems to be a mark on his nose where the glasses would sit).
My wife often takes her glasses off for photos and blinks a lot (I’m not sure if the two are related). She often ends up looking like this in pictures too.
Ya. I’m with topazz. Something about it screams “Posed”.
Just go away, it’s still awkward. People need to see the humor in these whether they’re posed or not. That’s why it’s called “awkward family photos”!
Wait… I think someone just passed gas.
Oh goodness look at mom’s neckless! She’s warding off the evil spirits!
This picture is obviously posed. Thumbs down.
ummm, yeah…..IT”S A PORTRAIT!!! you generally pose for those…
So what if it’s posed? It’s still awkward.
yea um if you’d actually read through the comments you might have found out that the person who the little girl said it wasn’t…READ!
Topazz, please go find another site that suits your lack of humor……..
The submitter posted the back story to this
Actually, Dads have a habit of not wanting to be at family portraits and looking p***ed off. As in “can we go home now, I’m so sick of this”…My dad looked very similar in our family portraits…lol
OMG….i LOVE this!! There are so many good awkward things going on in this pic…..I think I had a dress exactly like that too…..typical 80’s style!
I had (er still have) that coral necklace! and yes,it too was from the 80’s
He looks like Julia Robert’s crazy husband in Sleeping With The Enemy!!
OMG – he does!!!
that is what i thought!!
Yeah, and he just noticed that the photographer’s extra lenses were not stored correctly, in exact rows with the company name facing outward.
I thought the SAME daggone thing– whaa? She took classes at the YMCA and knew how to swim? Whaaa? Hahaha Sleeping with the Enemy! Exactly!
EXACTLY! Maybe he’s thinking about the towels not being straight or the labels on the can in the pantry…
He’s…he’s…STEALING MY SOUL!
I could see the wife, as they are posing, say, “By the way dear, is it ok for my mother to come and live with us forever?” or “I cancelled your poker party so we could go see ‘Thelma and Louise’ at the movies.”
I would love to know the story on this one.
Everyone else’s stories are better than the real one! I just really hated having my picture taken as a kid, so I kept making faces. My dad may have actually been smiling in the first shot! Regardless, they had this hanging in the hallway for years.
My mother did the same thing to me. My brothers and I had our picture professionally taken and just as the camera clicked, my middle brother did something to me to make me have an expression like your dad’s. Which shot did Mom order and hang on the wall? That one! I pointed it out to her and she said she didn’t even notice. (Thanks Mom! That makes me feel better!) Everyone wonders why I moved away… 🙂
when my brother and i were kids my mom would take us to get our portraits done whenever K-Mart or Zody’s would have some special deal. these were always one-day-only events, and it *never* failed that the night before we’d be roughhousing or get hit by a swing or something and one of us would end up with a black eye. i mean literally *every time*.
mom would try to cover it as well as she could with her makeup, but inevitably we’d get back a portrait of two happy smiling children one of which would have a noticeable shiner (especially awkward on a little GIRL= me XD) this was WAAAY before photoshop, but you’d think they would have at least tried to retouch it a *little*.
never the less she’d grit her teeth and hang it up somewhere….i think that was why she eventually stopped doing it and was content with our school portraits.
AJ, I think I’d hang this picture, too. Beautiful people; great photo. Sounds like your family had a healthy sense of humor. Thanks for sharing.
My dad brought my older brother to Sears to get his picture taken (which he hated) at the age of four. The photographer did everything he could think of to get Jacob to smile to no avail. Finally my dad lost his patience and told him “That’s just his take the damn picture”
sorry i left out a word, the quote is “that’s just his face take the damn picture”
I think someone just got scolded and the photographer was in a hurry.
Blame the photographer’s poor choice of words. Dad was emotionally scarred by a cheese when he was younger.
Best reply ever…lol
Moments before the mom said “Honey, we’re going to have another baby!”
Pssh. Dad’s soooo lame.
he was just told how much that photo was going to cost him
The look on the little girl’s face says it all: “I wish I had a compound bow right now…”
I just woke my husband up laughing at this one! Compound bow, indeed!
Awesome response. Love it.
LOL! I always look for the compound bow comment.
OK, I have got to ask…what’s up with the compound bow? I have read so many comments on here about it and they are hilarious but ??????
type it in the search box at the upper right of the site 🙂
“Uh oh. I know that look. He’s about to do something maniacal. I just hope the photographer finishes before that happens.”
About to happen? That look says something just happened that shouldn’t have.
No, he just found out how much he could have saved by switching his car insurance to Geico.
HHHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAA. You made me lol
