    “Hm. That cloud over there looks like Burt Reynolds. Fascinating…”

  2. AJ says:

    I have a confession to make – this picture – and this woman – totally sends me wild!

  3. ali says:

    im guessing she’s trying to look contemplative, like it’s supposed to be an artistic photo. But the trash bag wrapper is so wrong.

  4. justme says:

    There’s a little shmutz on the front of the sheet, up near her face.

    I mean yeah, the whole thing is awkward and the comments mostly hilarious (come on BA….really?? You didn’t see the sarcasm??) but all I can think about is the stuff on the sheet….

  5. Not an expert says:

    “So, Mr. Photographer, I just want to capture this entire pregnancy experience in a portrait. And when I say the ENTIRE experience, that’s exactly what I mean. This black sheet is where the magic began. Do you think you can work this into the photo somehow?”

  6. Ginger says:

    Allie!!! Oh, Allie??? Please, please could you tell us what the point of this pose was supposed to be? Please?

  7. Pipergirl says:

    Babysling – you’re doing it wrong.

  8. Scott says:

    I’m sure some photog somewhere is having 2nd thoughts and is quietly removing this one from his portfolio…

  9. The stork is carrying her, he is just a little too far on the right so didn’t make the picture…

  10. Newton says:

    Almost reminds you of the scene in the original version of “Planet of the Apes” where the Ape soldiers are capturing humans with nets.

  11. It's me! Dee!! says:

    Wow, she certainly looks thrilled about the impending birth.

  12. Sheri says:

    Bizarre. That’s all I can say, just bizarre.

  13. OOP says:

    She’s looking toward heaven. Should we be worried?

  14. RooseveltTedy says:

    At least she is covered.

  15. Don says:

    Good grief! Do we really have to bash every picture on here? She just won the Expecting Mothers Annual 5k Run.

    • BA says:

      Dude, it’s called AwkwardFamilyPhotos, not AwesomeFamilyPhotos. Get over it.

      • Ginger says:

        BA…dude, Don was being SARCASTIC. Get over it.

        • Don says:

          Ginger, thank you for the response to BA. I was going to reply but then that would have turned into a “he said, he/she said” (not knowing exactly what gender BA might be). I do appreciate the “dude” title , it makes me feel way younger than my 50yrs. As you so eloquently stated I was attempting to be sarcastic. I mean come on…a 5k? She’s not even sweating!

      Don — Funny!

  16. Iveagh says:

    Very strange but funny.

  17. Rattrap007 says:

    Is she in deep thought, bored, or hungry?

  18. Carmen says:

    wild pregnant woman traipsing through forest gets her bosom-and-belly cloth caught on a tree branch, and looks up to the heavens for help.

  19. Jerkface says:


  20. Cheryl says:

    Pretty sure that is a plastic table cloth, a little late for a “rubber sheath”

  21. Carolyn says:


  22. justjill says:

    They could’ve at least ironed the sheet first….

  23. Dave says:

    She is overdue, this is the new natural birth way of getting the kid out. Pull, release, catch the kid.

  24. Jillian says:

    I’m confused. Is this a Rebozo? From a photographer’s point of view, why not use some clips and let the rest drape?

  25. Amy says:

    I see the thought behind it… didn’t quite make it’s mark.
