Family Portrait

Welcome To The Gun Show

“This pic was taken of myself, my two little brothers, and our father in the early 90’s. Apparently, we felt the need to show off our lack of muscles!”

Silent Rebellion

“My Mom forced my Dad to get his picture taken in the early 80’s. Years later, I discovered his silent rebellion.”

Mom Wanted Twins

“This is a photo of my boyfriend when he was two years old. Why does he match that doll? Why is there a lit candle in the middle of the train? Did the photographer provide the doll and matching outfits? We will never know.”

Grabbing My Attention

“I’m a photographer at a Sears Portrait Studio and I conned my mother and her new husband to come get some photos  made with me. I was having difficulty smiling without making the squinty-eye face.  I guess my mom was getting tired of waiting on me to finally get my act together, so she reached up and grabbed my boob to make me laugh.  This was the result. I couldn’t make that face again if I tried. Not surprisingly, this is my mother’s biggest and most natural smile in the whole 2 hour session! Mom’s poor new husband doesn’t even know what he got himself into…”

Cheaper By The Dozen

“This is a family photo circa 1997, of my grandmother and her grandchildren, (including me, the girl on the right in the pink dress and awful knockoff of the “Rachel” haircut.)  Clearly, all of us in the photo are a hot mess, considering not ONE person is looking at the camera, and most of the small children look as if they were subjected to the clown from the movie, “IT”, right before the picture was taken.”

Going Rogue

“We tried taking a nice family picture now that my daughter is one. She looks like she’s going to slit someone’s throat.”

An Uplifting Moment

“This is a photo of my family and me from a few years back. I’m the oldest and in the middle, youngest on the left, middle child on the right. We didn’t plan this, but it turned out to be pretty awkward.”

Two Sets Of Twins

“As the father of two sets of twins, I think this is the first in a long line of Awkward Family Photos.”

Fumble

“This is a photo of my daughter and my two nephews. My oldest nephew was not happy about being separated from his mom to take the picture. We gave him a football to keep him calm, but apparently he wasn’t having it.”
