We’ve all had family portraits done at one point in life or another. Some of us have been unfortunate enough to be in those family photos that you just want to burn to ashes. See, family photos are a hit or miss. Depending on the theme, props, and photographer, the end result can be a masterpiece, or a tragedy, like the many on this list.
Taking a picture requires a lot, especially, if the group is a big one. Children might not cooperate, someone might not have the best angle or the flash might cause eyes to be closed. But when families choose themes that do not come out the way it might have been intended, the image becomes a forever shot of awkward. I know, all too well, the feeling of being sick at the sight of a hideous picture from ages ago.
I am sure the families on this list thought their ideas were remarkable, and you can tell by their smiles. But, one might disagree with that based on the outcome. From the Chewbacca family to weird poses and strange items, you are in for a treat. Check out some of the most ridiculously awkward and hilarious family photos.
