Do family photos stress you out? My family has ditched out on taking family photos for years. This year we decided to do something different. This year we decided to take Totally Awesome Family Photos.
Oh yes! I made ugly sweaters for my mum, sister, niece, and me this year. Read all about that process here:
|How to Make a Really Ugly Ugly Sweater|
Awesome Family Photo PosesLet's start the whole fam off with a move I call the Head Tilt. You can all tilt one direction or towards each other, There is no wrong tilt when you have a side ponytail.
Next, line up everyone and put your hand on your hip. Your teenage niece may try to put her elbow on your shoulder. That's okay, as long as a teenager is smiling in a photo, it's okay.

This is my favorite pose. I call it, The Secret. This involves leaning over your family, as if to tell them a secret. It must be a good one, judging from the look on my sister's face.
When all else fails, bring in props. Mustaches are always good. Glasses, sparkly lips and hats work well too.
Now, some special sister poses. Let's start by using your hand to make a shelf for your chin. Bonus points if your side ponies meet.
This last pose sent me into hysterical laughter.
To review: ugly sweater, side ponies, smiling teenagers, and awkward poses make totally awesome family photos. Speaking of awesome photos, the inspiration for our photo shoot was our favorite board game, Awkward Family Photos.
For more fun, check out the Awkward Family Photos website. Hilarious! Here's a photo of me, my mum and my sister back in the day. My sister and I had the chicken pox yet my mum is frowning. That's awkward.
