Having the perfect family portrait is every mom’s dream, but actually getting that shot? Well, that can just as easily turn into her worst nightmare. Getting kids to not only sit still but to pose with one another and smile like they mean it just seems to be too much to ask of them all at once.
Snapping a perfectly timed shot becomes even more difficult if you’ve got more than one kid thrown into the mix. The chances of two or more kids being in a cooperative mood are probably close to about one in a million. If they know their parent’s hearts are set on that perfect portrait, the odds of making it happen seem to slim up even further.
Sibling rivalry is the stuff that legendary family portraits are made of, though. Some of the best pictures out there are of siblings battling it out, pulling an epic prank, or just being plain old creepy. Granted, if it weren’t for mom and dad always trying to snap the perfect pic, a lot of comedic gold would be lost to the world.
Fortunately, it doesn’t seem like parents are going to give up on that unicorn family photo anytime soon, and in the meantime we get to enjoy all the ones that couldn’t make the cut. Prepare yourself to see these siblings at their finest in this list of 30 family portraits that went horribly awry.
Like this girl, for instance. When her brother was having a photo-op with his trophy after a hockey game, she knew that even though he had a trophy, she had one hell of an onion ring!
We can definitely see why their parents snapped the photo; they’ll always have dirt on their kids.
Believe it or not, though, there was a time before smartphones when people had to actually talk to each other, and no, it wasn’t always pleasant. That’s why just about every family road trip photo album has at least one picture of miserable looking teens against a gorgeous backdrop. It’s just what you did back then.
There would be a lot less laughter in the world if it weren’t for the bold colors, geometric shapes, and cheesy fashion that dominated the times.
