Family Portrait

Anatomy Of A Family Portrait

“A photo of my grandparents, aunts and mother (she’s the one covering her face).”

“My Mom and my sister were taking photos for her high school senior luncheon. My sister wanted to do something different rather than just stand next to each other. So, she came up with this. And everyone definitely remembered it!”

The Onion

“My mother is pregnant with me in this photo, you can see my older sister, and my cousin. The old farts are the photographer/my grandad, and my gran. Then my mother and her 2 sisters are sitting, and their spouses are standing. Creepy Uncle Stu is the only one posing. My dad is clearly enjoying time with his in-laws.”

Protest Pose

“This was the last time I tried to get my kids to pose for a family picture. My youngest daughter was having none of it and would not cooperate with the photographer. This was the closest we could get to a happy family picture.”

Cousin Chaos

“This is me and all of my cousins getting a family portrait done at a Sears somewhere in Boston, MA. I’m the one crying. Don’t know why. But my dad says we gave up on the photo after about 45 minutes.”

Deena and The Denimoes

“I come from a very musical family and we thought it’d be cute to dress up in denim with all of our instruments.”

Purple Haze

“One day, back in ’81 or so, MawMaw thought it would be a good idea for us to all enjoy a few glasses of her fermented ‘friendship punch’ before heading down to the photo studio at K-Mart.”

Like A Rose

“I brought my daughter to a portrait studio but I don’t know why I agreed to the oversized rose theme.”
