  4. Torrie says:

    I’m pretty sure Marnie just threatened to put cheese on his green beans. You know how he is about cheese.

    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.

  8. PTSD says:

    This reminds me of the horror movie, The Stepfather.

  9. lolsuz says:

    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.

  11. T$ says:

    Magnum P.I. has a gun to his back.

  12. Kristen says:

    Wow, look even at the little girls clenched fists. Someone was nooot happy, LOL.

  13. El Kev says:

    He kinda looks like he would be a stunt double for Kurt Russell in Tombstone.

  14. sallyomally says:

    *sigh* Dad’s trying to mind meld with the photographer AGAIN…..

  15. Silfax says:

    The only known childhood photo of Marney who is saying
    “Dad – you were supposed to be wearing the blue tie”

  16. Megan says:

    Clearly the photographer is naked.

  17. RayRay says:

    Taylor frowned. Dammit! Dad’s gone catatonic again!

  18. Ashlings says:

    She’s right to keep her eyes on that guy…. REDRUM.

  19. pittipat says:

    I literally LOL’d! This pic is AWESOME!

  20. diane says:

    this is their halloween or think of your mil look. lol

  21. Angie says:

    “What do you mean the large glossy’s cost extra?!”

  22. Bridey says:

    Only 7 or 8 years old, and she’s already mastered the “Dad’s a dork” eyeroll!

  23. You Know says:

    You can see the strings.

  24. Angel Baby says:

    Family portrait Weekend at Bernie’s style

  25. ShivS says:

    Dad could never figure the timer out, so he just used the power of his mid. I am so lucky I am his daughter!

  26. calvinette says:

    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.

  27. Adam says:

    He’s actually smiling underneath that stash…

  28. Rich says:

    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.

  29. CarpoolMom says:

    She’s actually looking at the Care Bear props she was told she couldn’t hold… (i know this from experience)

  30. Whoa says:

    “Holiday Greetings from Chief Inspector Jacques Clouseau and family”

  31. Becca says:

    The little girl has a clenched fist…she must be really PO’d with him!

  32. Jeff M. says:

    Actually, I think that IS his poke her face. O_0

  33. carol says:

    All my family photos end up looking similar to this. I love these people!

  34. Robert says:

    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.

  35. Heidi says:

    Ya. I’m with topazz. Something about it screams “Posed”.

    • nadine says:

      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”!

  36. crayola says:

    Wait… I think someone just passed gas.

  37. Kay says:

    Oh goodness look at mom’s neckless! She’s warding off the evil spirits!

  38. topazz says:

    This picture is obviously posed. Thumbs down.

  39. sallyomally says:

    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!

  40. eric smith says:

    they’re hereeeeeeeeeee

  41. Mtn says:

    He looks like Julia Robert’s crazy husband in Sleeping With The Enemy!!

  42. Tim says:

    He’s…he’s…STEALING MY SOUL!

  43. Becky says:

    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.

    • AJ says:

      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.

      • Becky says:

        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… 🙂

        • butcherbaby says:

          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.

      • CP says:

        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.

        • Halfreck says:

          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”

  44. PopCollector says:

    I think someone just got scolded and the photographer was in a hurry.

  45. Mark says:

    Blame the photographer’s poor choice of words. Dad was emotionally scarred by a cheese when he was younger.

  46. Bruce says:

    Moments before the mom said “Honey, we’re going to have another baby!”

  47. Monika says:

    Pssh. Dad’s soooo lame.

  48. jim says:

    he was just told how much that photo was going to cost him

  49. Jeff says:

    The look on the little girl’s face says it all: “I wish I had a compound bow right now…”

  50. Tom Flapwell says:

    “Uh oh. I know that look. He’s about to do something maniacal. I just hope the photographer finishes before that happens.”
