Sure, there are exceptions to every rule, but more often than not, you’ll find something amusingly out-of-place about every portrait that hangs in your home. From a photobomber to cringe-worthy wardrobe choices, these 20 awkward family photos are sure to make you laugh… but not in a mean way. All are beautiful… in their own way.
1. “This is my second cousin ‘Jessica’ who happens to be engaged to the man holding the heart. The Cupid here is her brother. This is the engagement photo they used in their wedding invitation.”

4. Someone didn’t get the silly photo memo.
5. This great grandmother was super excited when she landed in Hawaii.
