And You Thought Your Family Was Embarrassing: The Ultimate Photo Album Of Awkward Families
Laura Lee - June 17, 2019

All of us have huddled up with our loved ones to snap a keepsake family photo at least once in our lives. Sometimes a relative might have their eyes closed, or someone decided to give another bunny ears, but that’s usually the worst that can happen during the semi-regular family photo experience. On the other hand, some people take family photoshoots to an entirely different level. Here are some of our favorites…

 

 

Would Take A Bullet For That Mullet

This family would definitely take a bullet for a mullet. It’s what they live by.

 

 

 

 

Just Chocking, Not Joking

This seriously awkward family seems to have no problem with their son and brother very casually chocking his mother. It’s no joke for them.

 

 

Strong Family Genes

So this is what they mean by strong genes, uh? This happy family of five perfectly depicts this in their super-stylin’ jeans.

 

 

 

 

Frugal Father

These parents perhaps couldn’t afford to buy the entire family matching pajamas this year, so the father decided to skip out for the good of his wife and daughters.

 

 

Holiday Cheer is Here

Yikes! This is not your standard everyday family Christmas card. But hey, it seems to be working for them.

 

 

 

 

Old Testy-ment

Well, clearly they are just trying to get into the holiday spirit and touch on the roots of their ancient forefathers from the Bible. Right?

 

 

The Chain Gang

This guitar-hero fanatic father is certainly not your everyday player. Not only does he like to bring his daughter into the picture, but he likes to play on the most intense level.

 

 

 

 

Clutching vs. Touching

It appears as though every family has a different level of comfort within their homes, as well as an understanding of what’s normal and acceptable. This one clearly isn’t your everyday family.

 

 

The Favorite Child

Perhaps their son didn’t quite fill his required duties before the photoshop, so here we are left with the results of his behavior.

 

 

 

 

Head of the Household

There’s only one way for a husband and father to truly prove he is the head of the family, and that is by letting the rest of the family take a photo with… your head.

 

 

Master of His Domain

 

via Imgur

 

Well, they do say that every home has their master and head of the home. So daddy has decided to take charge. In a very, very, awkward form…

 

 

 

 

Piggy Back Slack

When you want to give your child a piggyback ride, but you simply can’t carry their weight, it often looks something like this.

 

 

Feminine Adrenaline

 

via Imgur

 

This is what happens when men decide to explore their feminine side, and when mommy goes out of town for the weekend.

 

 

 

 

Cosmic Kitty

This kitty is sure having a blast during this photoshoot. One could even say that he’s feeling over the moon, and like shooting for the stars.

 

 

Fiesty Family

 

via Imgur

 

It can be hard to get your family all together and to sit still through a long photoshoot in which they need to pretend to love each other. They were far from amused.

 

 

 

 

Grandma’s Gone Wild

 

via Imgur

 

Generally, when your grandmother tells you she’s off to a vacation, you think that she’s joking, or that she’s headed to the grocery store. This is clearly meant what she said and took it to a whole new level.

 

 

A Shady Family

It is quite evident that something about this family is pretty shady, but we’re just not sure what exactly.

 

 

 

 

Prom is the Bomb

 

via Imgur

 

Prom is the bomb! This rather unfortunate couple surely feels that way, and went all out in their photoshoot.

 

 

A Rabbit Habit

 

via Imgur

 

Awkward family photos at it’s finest. We’re not even sure how many of these rabbits are real, and how many are plastic.

 

 

 

 

Consent Counts

 

via Imgur

 

When it comes to consent, it goes beyond just people in a romantic relationship. This little guy surely didn’t agree to all this family loving.

 

 

Double Trouble

 

via Imgur

 

Like mother, like daughter, as they say. Or like son? Not too sure to be honest.

 

 

 

 

Reflection Inspection

 

via Imgur

 

Yikes. Next time granny asks you for a selfie, either make sure there’s no mirror. Or that you’re dressed, that’s always good too.

 

 

Three Dumb for Freedom

 

via Imgur

 

How many shirtless guys does it take to take an awkward picture? Apparently three.

 

 

 

 

“Happy” Birthday

 

via Imgur

 

This is what they call a real wild party. Calm down guys, we wouldn’t want complaints from the neighbors.

 

 

Glad in Plaid

 

via Imgur

 

It appears as though they like to keep things within the family, outfits included.
