This family just sprouted up.

The community theater director says, “Okay people, I want you to be an artichoke. Beee the artichoke….become it….feel it!!!”
Clearly they are arranged in order of their enthusiasm for the pose.
Wow…82 responses and not a single “peas in a pod’ reference!
You guys are slippin’…
Oh, yeah, I was just gonna say… aww crap…
The guy in front should have dressed in brown as the stump
I love the over-thought, conceptual pictures.
Looks like a Toyota Prius commercial!
If you look at the facial expressions from back to front, the range is “This is the dumbest pose ever!” all the way to “This is so cool!”
Not awkward, but the guy in back could have lit better.
hm wonder who the favorite child is
glad to see everyone is weraing their regulation sized greensleeves!!!
LOL…whats up with the untied laces and dirty shoes?!?!
You just wait, little Johnny. As soon as your older siblings start bringing home grandkids, guess who won’t be front and center anymore.
After leaving the photo studio,the family walked into a locust plague & were never seen again.
If you’re going to put The Chosen One front and center, at least get him to tie his shoes first.
What is the dark object on the floor in the lower left corner?
Okay…that’s just weird.
Alas my love, you do me wrong– to cast me off so discourteouusssllyyyy..
Nice family tree…………….
Love it! Best one by far!!
OOOOOH! My same thought!
i want to retie the front kids shoes. kind of ruined the whole picture for me……..darn my ocd
Ah yes, the Green family from Greensboro, in Green County. I wonder what their favorite holiday is?
The Black Hills?? No,no….Red China….um,no,that’s not it…..Orange County??…..probably not…..ah,oooh!!Ooooh,I know: GREENLAND.
Someone scored at the post St. Patrick’s Day sale 75% off! Everything green must go!
This tree won’t flourish with no sunlight. The next pic is going to entail them all laying down from lack of light
Looks like Sneetches to me from Dr Suess that’s how they stand when they sang
Plain-bellied Sneetches, since they don’t have stars upon thars.
But I think you’re actually thinking of Whos.
Well, in reality…it was the Grinch that was green.
well,green is supposed to be good for the eyes….
“You know they say that geniuses pick green.”
This picture would be pretty good just a couple things I would do different. I would have the switched the 2 women, used a different background color and used the same color shirts on all of them. The 2 boys are pretty cute, too bad the last guy is lost in it!
LOL…So the physical contortions are the only thing RIGHT about this photo, eh? Are you an employee of Olan Mills, by any chance? 😛
LOL actually I am a photographer that is why I love this site. I am glad I found it. Some cute ways of posing and well some not so great.
My OCD wants the lights and darks alternating for better effect.
I like it! I think it has a lot of pizzazz. They could have sequels with other colors, too. They can go through a blue period, a purple, etc. They just have to be sure to shuffle the order so as not to play favorites.
Thank you “Brace” family, for not defaulting to the “Armshelf”.
So which one is Sweet Baby James?
One more awkward thing about this is that they misspelled “Greensleeves”…
That’s exactly what I was thinking! lol. Unless the families name is Green so it’s meant to say Greens leaves????
It wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the last guy, lost in the deep void.
The Brady Bunch goes green!
Is this a Swiss Army boy or something? He has all the features he needs in one handy package. The old man, the old woman falling down, the hot chick, and two geeky men just in case one was not geeky enough.
LOL, I like the concept.
OOOH OOOH OOOH!!!!
It’s the “Swiss Army-Knife Robinson!!!”
Extra bonus- Invisible to those who are red/green colorblind.
Not too obscure… but I like the comment about colorblindness. I guess they’d just be floating heads?
LOL, one does your taxes, one makes your bed, one does your biology lab reports…
They guy in front looks like Cameron from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Good call– he’s got the hair and everything! He just needs the Gordie Howe jersey. But then it would be red and green, which is just too cutesy, no?
Didn’t they ever hear the saying “blue & green should never be seen unless there’s a colour in between”?!
What, like hospital scrubs? Bwuh.
Umm, maybe those are just “voices.”
Where would they have heard that? Where would I have heard that? And what is the color that goes in between?
All I can hear in my head is a deep-voiced Ho Ho Ho and a small chorus singing “Green Giant!”
Introducing the Von Trapp Family…… *singing* So long Farewell auf widersehen goodbye ….
The Vertigo family portrait. Junior can’t even tie his shoes without falling over.
Wow, I didn’t even notice that. Nice attention to detail!
I guess we know who the favorite child is!
My thoughts exactly! Why does that one kid get to sit front and center with the parents behind him?
My bet is that they’re one of those families where the parents let that kid have their master bedroom while they share a twin-size bed in what used to be the kid’s room and share one bathroom with the other kids. (I once saw that on an episode of one of those nanny shows. The kid was really, really spoiled.)
Then again, maybe he’s the only one that doesn’t have body image issues, so the rest hid behind him.
Green is a hot color for spring, you know. These guys are just way ahead of the curve.
For what year? 2163?
Alas, my love, you do me wrong.
And is it just me or does the guy on the bottom look shockingly like Marky Mark?
“Say hi to your mother for me…”
I agree, he DOES look like Marky Mark!
Photosynthesis….It does a body good…
Could’ve been a great picture if the background didn’t swallow the poor “middle” child.
Lousy lighting will do that every time!
Maybe he is trying to back away from the family picture….
Why is golden boy up front? Really weird! He’s their fav?
God I hate that! Give the middle children a break, man!!!
Ya know just because you can pose people a certain way doesn’t mean you actually have to take the shot.
Just what I was thinking!!
But then what would we laugh at?
But then we wouldn’t have the glory that is “Awkwardfamilyphotos.com”
How lame is that? They forgot the star on the top guy’s head. Amateurs.
I just about fell out of my seat laughing at this!! Thanks for a great laugh after a long day!! I’ll be sure to remember the star when I make my family pose like this for our next Christmas picture.
Who says it’s not easy being green??
Reference to Kermit the Frog’s froggy blues song from many years ago.
This is actually kind of a neat idea. But obviously did not work for the family portrait idea.
“It ain’t easy being Green”
Haven’t I seen 5 of them on Family Fued?
