Funny Family Photos

One of my biggest regrets since becoming a mother is not having professional photos taken of Oliver after he was born. Still at 8-months old, we have no photos. However, we have plans. Big Plans! We are going to have photos taken next month. The new dilemma is what poses to do? What kind of photos suit our family the best?  I'm here to tell you cutesy cuddly family photos are not for us. We are crazy, and therefore need photos to match. 
While looking online for inspiration we found these...  A few ideas we like, families that made us feel better about ourselves, and a few we think should have landed the families in Child Protective Services care...



LOVE!



We want to make friends with them.

Glad they are not our neighbors.

I am a middle child.
I have no doubt the older sister pushed that kid...
Just like mine did.


Negative!

Not only would FTD set this up with Oliver.
We would have it framed.

This is my family.

Hi! My mom is a Crazy Bitch.
But she thinks otherwise.

Come on.  These turtles deserve more.
Get the photo from a more discrete location. duh!

And the Award for Father of the Year goes too...
Not this dad.

Classic! Family with Three boys.


Really?
I can smell that from here!


A family portrait in a Cocaine t-shirt?
And father of the year goes to...
This guy!




Thank God I did not grow up in this family.
"Hey Kids, get out of the car! I got a really great idea..."

This is close to us, but we need more dysfu*ktion.

Very Cool!

However, too cool for us...

Close...

Spot on!

LOVE IT!

Oh, for fucks sake!
Can someone get CPS on the line?

This is brilliant!

That would make me proud.

Every family has one...



Uncle Rod...
Droppin a deuce.

Love this.

And the winner is....
Definitely NOT this one!




So, in the end we have decided to wing it.. and probably listen to the photgrapher.  I don't need anymore regrets...

The best fam pics are the ones where you're just being your normal crazy self and goofing off with your cutie pie. The photogs, if they're any good, should be able to just shoot you in your natural state, and "pose" you in ways that don't land your pics on a blog post like this one ;)

We just had some fam pics done in late Aug., but I'm thinking I'd like to get some done again when Baby L is 1. We totally missed the boat on when she was a newborn though; I have no idea how people can pose and stuff when baby's like 4 days old and mom and dad are barely conscious and fighting like cats and dogs about who gets the extra 10 minutes of nap time. LOL!

hehehe! Hilarious... and yeah, we bought Dave the "Ass Family" t-shirt the weekend of our wedding walking around St. Augustine- yep- it's appropriate. Oh, and we have a ceramic wall plate decorative thing about "Our Family Tree is Full of Nuts" (I was frustrated with our family-lol) from the same weekend...

I definitely think you need good photos of you all in your Halloween costumes- too classic! Whatever you do it'll be brilliant I'm sure :)

I'm here from bloghop - love the photos they made me giggle - we've never had a family portrait done - I dread to think which of the above we'd turn out like!

Those pictures were so funny. I was feeling tired, but after laughing so hard at this I don't think I will need that afternoo coffee after all. We haven't had our daughter professional photographed yet and she is almost 2.5 years old. I'm the family photographer for better or worse!

April @First Time Mom and Dad said...

I agree, I want 1 year old pics too. I am just afraid he won't look like a baby then. And I could not agree more about the early on photos. I looked... no still look like a zombie with pasty skin and dark circles. No way could I have looked my best on 2 hours of sleep... not to mention the firey blazing dagger eyes I would have been shooting at FTD... lol

April @First Time Mom and Dad said...

Oh, yes. We will be getting some great halloween photos! I love the Ass family.

April @First Time Mom and Dad said...

So do we! When I find it I'll send one your way. xx

April @First Time Mom and Dad said...

Hi Jay! thanks for stopping by!

April @First Time Mom and Dad said...

Glad to have been the jolt you needed! I laughed myself stupid over the dad in the Cocaine shirt and the guy by the pool. I am the familt photographer too.

Chrissy said...

I just laughed so hard that I cried. Thanks. :-)

Suburban Momma said...

Oh my gosh!! Those photos are hillarious! Can't wait to see your photos. :)

Suburban Momma said...

By the way, I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. :)

April @First Time Mom and Dad said...
