Mom just wanted a shot of all the kids.
(submitted by Ashe)
I just don’t get the author’s comment “Mom just wanted one of the kids.”.
I’m sure there’s something obvious I’m missing.. anyone feel like explaining???
I’m not totally sure about that comment, either. Maybe it’s like there was only supposed to be the first boy and the others just latched on. LOL
The comment “mum just wanted one of the kids” I THINK could be rephrased “Mum didn’t want to be in the photo herself; she just wanted a photo of the kids,”, not “Mum only wanted ONE of her three, almost four, children”.
And, since this is my first post ever…this picture is obviously PHOTOSHOPPED!!! At least one of the kids isn’t holding a CROSSBOW. The AFP GRANDPARENTS would be horrified at this photo, as would MARNIE.
You forgot THIS IS NOT AWKWARD and THAT IS SO DANGEROUS type people.
Question for Ashe:
Let’s assume you’re the Father or one of the kids. Ask yourself. Why didn’t Mom want her face in the published photo?
No, just no.
Conjoined mommy and children? This would be a photo definitely and only hung in the parents’ room. Otherwise, nooooooo.
The other two kids heads are really at odd, unnatural angles, I can just hear the photographer in the background “…..little boy at the end, tilt your head a little more, now chin up some, look this way….perfect”
Everybody’s doing a brand new dance now. C’mon baby, do the Locomotion.
Ha ha! FTW!
Wow….so many comments & no ”That’s photocopied” …….maybe they are all at another site trying to sound like experts.
(Maybe they’re at Kinko’s…)
*snicker* THIS is an awkward comment!! LOL
I think ya missed the mark on this one, its just not that bad. Its well composed, its of cute kids, and will be really interesting for the person in the tummy to look at years in the future. Pregnant bellies aren’t that weird, and just doesn’t seem awkward to me.
I love the site, hysterical stuff; have mad fun!
Please, mothers-to-be – DON’T!
Everyone is Demi Moore when they’re pregnant. And everyone wants to see them naked. Because you KNOW we paid good money for this picture, and by God, it’s going in a frame on the mantle. Right next to the picture of the whole family by the same photographer in which we’re all wearing black shirts and jeans, or white shirts and jeans, or, maybe the one where we went all out and did the “all white on the beach with the dog” photo.
Why are the boys shirtless? It’s an awkward picture, but it would be less so if the kids were all wearing clothes. And why is the daughter wearing a strapless dress?
to me it looks like they are all draped in the same satin sheet..
…and therein lies the awkwardness.
Keep an eye on the kid on the end…he looks cute yet evil
What I don’t like is the off the shoulder “dress” on such a little girl.
Tara, the boys are not wearing shirts. It would be odd to have girl in a shirt – she’s doing au naturale with modesty.
Still, it’s awkward. Mom, your head was invited to the party!
Umm why did you just point that out? LOL you’re making it sound all pervy when it’s completely innocent…geez
Yeh, all bet’s are off since Miley Cyrus showed her (eek!) back…
I’m with you and Kitten on this. The little girl should be allowed to be as free as her brothers. And shame on stores that sell bras and adult underwear to toddlers, I say ban them!
Shame on the STORES? What about the parents who BUY them? Stores only sell what consumers demand.
Mom does this once a year. Five years and one month from now we’ll have a baseball team.
I like this one. It’s beautiful.
I think its a really beautiful and loving pic.. might have been better if mummy’s head was in though. But I guess she wanted the focus to be on the photogenic sprogs. One of the better offspring and bump ones I’ve seen.
soon there’ll be 6 of them (I mean, com’on, have you seen the size of this belly? Am I the only one who’s been traumatized by Alien movies?)
Ahhh I kinda like it! I think it would have been better all three kids with eye contact. Its just the one kid that makes it awkward IMHO….
Interesting concept – bad execution. The weird black draping and somber looks just make the kids look creepy and alien-ish; the light shining on the belly, the one kid touching the belly, and no mom in sight – looks like the kids are waiting for it to “hatch.” lol
I agree–I got a flash back of the old black and white tv show “the Munsters” when I first saw this!
The touching of the others’ stomachs, as if they’re also pregnant, by the back two kids are what’s making me uncomfortable….maybe it’s just bad hand positioning, but it’s giving me this freaky circle of life vibe.
This photo is ok, but I would have let the kids wear whatever they wanted, and had the mom sitting down so you could see her face. If it had been a candid shot, it would have been really beautiful.
This is quite lovely. Not strange at all.
Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that she’s wearing satin or leather pants.
It looks like she, along with the children, is wrapped in one huge, long piece of black satin. Very very weird!!
That there is a CONGA LINE OF AWKWARD.
HAAAAA! Dorothy for the WIN!
At the mere suggestion of appearing in a photo like this, my kids would have run screaming from the building.
Oh yeah! Mine too. I can my sweet daughter (who is now 16) sitting up in a clock tower with a rifle years later due to a photo like this……
This makes me laugh…it’s a personal choice for everyone, but I’m pregnant with #4 and have never been into the whole belly photo shoot thing. It’s just not for me.
I always think mom’s belly with the rest of the family is pretty weird!
My first thought:
The Little Engine Whose Water Broke?
Not creepy…sweet growing family! Kids do look content and happy.
No, not creepy. Awkward. That’s the name of the site.
Not awkward. That’s a really nice photo.
are we looking at the same photo cause this has awkward writen all over it
That belly is about to explode!!!
Hurry up and take cover behind mom!!!
Mom has NO HEAD!!!
I really liked this photo until I saw how much fun the first kid is having. then it got awkward for me.
He just got an idea for a Santa gift…..An enormous beach ball.
And I thought the two kids in the back with their slightly uncomfortable faces draped in black cloth was the awkward part.
1st kid: Alright! Another little kid to push around!
2nd kid: I sure hope it’s a girl.
3rd kid: Is there a chance it’ll be a puppy?
I think it is a sweet pic. I like it.
I had to stare at it for a moment or two to realize the big ball the kid was holding was his mothers pregnant belly. Too early for bad attempts at arty.
Me too! I thought he was holding a giant exercise ball before I clicked on the image and realized it was his mom’s baby bump.
At least she’s not doing the au-naturale-hands-covering-boobies thing!!
I think this is a fantastic photo. The kids look pretty happy as far as posed kid pictures go. It seems like a wonderful way to get them acquainted with the idea of a growing family.
EUGH. I get uncomfortable just looking at this! D:
SO DO I!
I’m looking through gaps in my fingers….oooh,that’s enough!!
I don’t know what’s more awkward? The headless mum, the gentle rubbing of mummys tummy, or the freaky stares by the other two kids at the back? Either way it’s a winner!
I can’t believe I didn’t notice that the Mum had no head!!!!
Hopefully, this pic will be taken down by the time he starts dating…
I really like this one, actually; I don’t think it’s awkward at all.
Just plain weird. My wife and I have 2 kids. We have had a desire to have our unborn children photographed.
We have NEVER had a desire to have our unborn children photographed.
I’m with you! I’ve been pregnant, and I do not see the appeal of showing your friends and family photos of your bare belly.
Especially when the mother won’t even show her face!
The kids themselves like to see pictures of when they were in mom’s tummy but not like this…I hope!
haha the first kids like pocking and playing with the belly.
Icky and lovely all at once–how does that work?
Compared to the majority of the other pregnancy photos on this site, this one is down right classy! I don’t think it’s awkward at all, very sweet.
I completely agree.
’cause nothing says “sweet” like shirtless children in a group grope!
I agree 100%. Not awkward AT all. Beautiful, just beautiful.
I don’t find this awkward at all! I love it!
Overall, I agree–until you look at the expression on the first boy’s face. It’s kinda funny–“That belly! So round, so mystical…”
It looks like he’s trying to be sneaky……
“Oh look! Mom’s belly button is now an outtie! I’m gonna try to push that sucker back in before she knows what I’m thinking!”
HA HA HA HA HA! That is a good one! It does look like that is what that first kid in line is thinking! LOL!
I like it, too. It’s very slightly awkward, but not WT* or anything. It’s a baby train! 😀 LOL
I also like this, definitely done classy, but still a little awkward 🙂
Aaww. Look at those sweet kids….
WHAT’S THAT THING OUT FRONT????
Damn my eyes! Cursed forever!
Damn you Demi Moore!
Seriously, just because you do it in black in white doesn’t make it art or even artistic.
Thank you Pilgrim, couldn’t have said it better myself!
You mean if I drape the puggies in black satin and stack them in a Pug Pile and I wear a nun’s habit and take a black and white picture it’s not going be classified as ARTSY???
Rough judges here 😀
Posing little kids with a potentially exploding outie belly just aint my cuppa tea. And leaving the mothers head out of the shot is really awkward.
Correct! But, if you were to drape the puggies in a zippy fuschia, that WOULD be art.
OOh! I almost forgot: If YOU were wearing a leather miniskirt!
(Yeah, much better…)
Puggies cant wear *plaid* it tends to make their noses to look smooshed. ;/
But I am confused. Even if I deck them out in a zippy fuschia and take a black and white picture how will the people know they are wearing a zippy fuschia???
I also wonder how someone comes to decide to pose their little kids next to their big extended belly and then not have their own head in the picture.
Missing Heads for $5,000 Alex…….
yes……..that is awkward
The button popped out. That turkey is DONE.
Yeah, makes me wonder why they didn’t wait a few days, then they could’ve included #4’s face, not surrounded by mom.
