Funny Family Portraits

Funny Family Portraits 

I love taking family portraits.  During my entire career I have photographed about 2,000 families. Taking family portraits is one of the most rewarding things I do as a portrait photographer.   The family portraits I have created are now treasured heirlooms!

During my career, I have created some very beautiful family portraits. However, I have also  taken some funny family portraits!  More often than not though, the families never see the funny family portraits because I know that they came to me for a beautiful portrait showing them all looking at the camera with nice big smiles on their faces.  The funny family portraits I have taken show mom yelling at the kids, or dad trying to wrangle the dog into sitting down in the appropriate place.   Alas, no one see’s these images but me because my clients don’t want to purchase images in which they look less than perfect.  Therefore, if you  happen to walk by my office some night when I am retouching family portraits and you hear me laughing when I am all alone in my office  you know what I am looking at.

Perhaps that is the reason that  find these funny family portraits so hilarious.  The family photos that you see in the video that I have posted below were actually liked by the family enough to print them!  Wow!   So many times as  i reviewed the family portrait in the video I found myself asking “what were they thinking?”  I hope you enjoy them and get a chuckle!
