    I think everything posted made a lot of sense. But, think on this, suppose you were to create
    a killer post title? I ain’t saying your information is not good., however what if you added a post title to maybe grab folk’s attention? I mean Nogjam

    Lousy professional photographer!

  4. Jenna says:

    OH. MY. GOD!! I laughed so hard I cried!! I just cannot imagine that they meant this as a serious fam portrait!! It had to be a joke!! It’s soo funny to not be!!!

    Life was always hard for Totemchild.

  6. Christie says:

  7. ann says:

    2 parents, 2 floating heads, 2 children of the corn. LOVE IT

  8. seth says:

    They have those kids on lockdown. Trapped! Trapped like rats!

  9. Coralee says:

    Forget the two boy’s heads, look at the little girls evil stare, freaky.

  10. Hank Edwards says:

    Ha! That’s Glenn Beck! the little boy with the pink shirt! lol Well, favors him anyway!

  11. francie says:

    The youngest boy looks like the precocious kid in an 80’s sitcom. He would be the one that always knew more than the clueless parents and had lots of “Awwww” moments.

  12. The Bud says:

    This has got to be the most awesome family photo ever! Very creative and brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.

  13. FunnyHmmm says:

    Maybe the one kid didn’t have a shirt in a shade of pink or burgundy so they had to hide all but his head?

  14. Swimming against the tide says:

    One big conjoined family.

  15. Carlos says:

    Are the blond kids twins?

  16. CB says:

    I think this is a creative and cute idea! But yes…..definitely awkward.

  17. Binkymae says:

    The plan for a family totem pole picture broke down when Mom refused to mount the ladder.

  18. Alan says:

    “The coupon said ‘ONE FREE FAMILY PORTRAIT’….and I’m determined to get us ALL in on the freebee”

  19. HeatherW says:

    If looks could kill, this photo would never have gotten out.

  20. Angela says:

    “if we hide behind here no-one will see we’re wearing pink shirts”

  21. ChrisF says:

    “I ain’t got no nobody……”

  22. Terri says:

    All the mean comments…. did you not see the heading “Awkward Family Photos”?????

  23. Kat says:

    “Ok, here we go…don’t move please…hold that pose….here we…..OH, hold on. Got to try again….shutter was closed…ok….trying again…..hold it….hold it, no moving…..yes…..OH! Didn’t have the flash on…..just a little longer… moving…..hold still……..”

  24. Coll says:

    I love the girl. She’s got that “I’m about to telekinetically set you on fire” look that always makes for great hallway family photo displays.

  25. BHM_Spud says:

    A week before the surgery to separate the twins.

  26. Rick says:

    The Walenda family did the exact same pose… except from a tightrope high above a circus audience.

  27. christy says:

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAHAHHAA! so many words yet nothing can be said to equal those priceless expressions!

  28. Bigbluefan says:

    They cut out Grandpa at the base of the pyramid

  29. Ashley Coats says:

    Wow. Is it a Valentines picture? Maybe they are trying to make a heart.

  30. DMF says:

    As someone pointed out on facebook, the kids are supposed to be forming a “heart” which is probably why they are in pink. However, I think the kid in the middle is suffering from a serious case of heartburn.

  31. Reginald von HoobieDoobie says:

    Why are they all wearing pink?

  32. Adam West says:

    That kid in pink is a stud, you know he’s thinking “better them than me!”

  33. Angela says:

    They should have quit while they were ahead :/

  34. Suburban Sweetie says:

    Whose idea was it to pose like that? Totally ridiculous.

  35. Carol says:

    Blond boy on the right: “I know, I know….but they’re my brothers. And they’re way bigger than me.”

    Blond girl on left : “Seriously??? We’re really posing like this?? Mom, I thought you were kidding! Let go of my hand – I am SO going to poke him in the eye if he doesn’t loosen that deathgrip on my shoulder….”

  36. karen says:

    I cannot believe anyone has paid good money to have a photographer do this! Or – how can a pro do this in the first place?? The whole composition sucks .. NOTHING works here! Left wondering if this photograph is on display in a home somewhere.

  37. kbm says:

    floating noggins …. funny….

  38. Kim says:

    One of those heads doesn’t look happy at all; neither does that little girl!

    • Rick D says:

      Note that she’s being firmly held in place by her mother and by two of her brothers, one high and one low. If she wasn’t being gripped like that, she’d be out of there in a flash.

  39. Sheila says:

    The only child thrilled with this set up is the middle brother. The little ones seem to be screaming “are you kidding??” and “OK, I’ve amused you can we move on”. Big brother is “OK, now what”. The parents are oblivious to it all.

  40. vicki says:

    The little girl even knows that’s messed up!

  41. Rae says:

    Oh My! Imagine the awkward position they had to stand in to achieve that pose.
