Stairway To Awkward Christmas Photos

“This was our joint family Christmas photo at the lake between my family and my mom’s sister’s family. We decided this staircase leading down to the lake would be the perfect spot for our family photo. We spent 30 minutes setting up the camera with it’s self-timer about 30 feet away from the staircase. I personally ran back and forth about 20 times. During the set-up, the two families waited on the staircase getting more and more impatient. There was yelling and pushing. It was a lovely time. Once it was ready for the photo, we all lined up and of course switched at least 2 times each with other people in the line to get the line up perfect. Then we all sucked in as not to have our stomachs touch the person in front of us and we forced a smile as we waited for the self-timer to go off. The pictures lasted for another 15 minutes and I had to run back and forth to check them and change the angle. Once I felt we had enough and it looked like everyone’s eyes were open, we called it quits. This picture is the best of the bunch. You’re welcome.”
