“We were standing waiting for the pictures to be taking – all of us doing whatever. My husband was taking the pictures and he was testing the shot.  Just really funny.  Could not have posed this one if we tried.”

“We went for a portrait session and didn’t want to take the same old boring family photo.  So dad came up with having our daughter do a handstand.  It wasn’t until we got the picture back that we realized it looked like…well, let’s just say her brother’s head placement was unfortunate.”

“We took this picture in PA right before Halloween. No retouching, but we believe the camera may have been on panoramic mode.”

Green Day - Behind The Awkwardness

“When I was 17 my parents thought it would be a good idea to take us all to pose for one of those glamour shots. This photo would of been a lot more awkward had I been allowed to wear my own make-up though maybe the glamour make-up and heavy air brushing adds to the uncomfortable.”

“Just an old family photo that many of us and our friends can’t stop looking at… we were visiting our grandparents in Mass, coming from PA.  So of course we had to take a family photo and of course my older brother was wearing a “Thriller” half shirt.  I keep asking myself, did they really sell those?  I am the one on the right… with a sweatshirt/short combo that almost looks like a one piece outfit. ”

“This was taken a few weeks ago during our first family portrait. A friend thought it was staged, but it’s not at all. After about 10 minutes of taking pictures it was getting pretty hard to wrangle my son.  I actually love this photo the most because it really captures the family dynamic well.”

Furries - Family Portrait

“Since it was one of our first “Major” holidays as a family, my mother decided it was a brilliant idea to take as many family photos as possible. Naturally, we all had to match. Sure, we have the good ones where my step dad here is actually wearing a shirt… but he doesn’t have a fur vest like the rest of us. Someone had the idea for him to wear *his* fur vest, and thus this picture was born, which includes me laughing with tears in my eyes. Believe it or not there is a huge portrait of this on a wrapped canvas above my mother’s bed to this day.”
