“This is a family portrait where we are wearing t-shirts from our boiled peanut business. We had an early morning appointment and got up 15 minutes before our time. The stunned look on our faces is actually a waking up look and thoughts of what are we doing!!!! It has become a family classic.”

“My daughter and I had been holding hands and she was leaning away from me and our photographer caught the perfect moment! So the rest of us are looking fabulous while my 2 year old is crashing into the pavement!”
… and later that day. Seriously.

“In 1990, I was in the Marine Corps and our family only had a few days together. We wanted to “remember” this date. Mission accomplished! We should have been arrested for child abuse. As we walked across the parking lot towards the portrait studio, people laughed, right out loud! Now THERE was a clue!”

“This is a pic of my husband and his family. My mother in law is obsessed with clowns. Her house is covered in them. This year they were even included in the family pic.”

“This represents our one and only professionally shot family photo. It was taken at my elementary school and I was mortified to show up at school in a marching band outfit. My mother insisted. Naturally, my friends laughed.”

“This photo was taken in 2007 or 2008. I am the young girl in this my parents made me go to this renaissance fair when I was sick. This day was hot, and my parents made me wear all this old looking heavier clothing. That was not pleasant. My mom is not dressed appropriate for a family picture. My brother is starring away and my dad his smile on his face. What kind of smile is that? And he is wearing sunglasses… I don’t think they had those prescription sunglasses back in the day, Dad.”

Frames are so contrived.

“Our photographer had the kids sitting on a fence posing for holiday photos. She asked them to pretend like they were laughing which made my son look ridiculous. So, his sister thought she would pretend to push him off, and then save his life to add a little fun to the moment. It didn’t really work out for her!”

“We were a pretty nerdy family.”
