The Worst Photo Shoot In History

Let's transport ourselves back to 1961, shall we? Mom and Dad had a simple task to accomplish: get a photo of their two wee girls they could use for a Christmas Card photo.

Doesn't sound so hard, does it?

The results? Entirely hilarious.

Because what they got instead was The Worst Photo Shoot Ever.

I mean, just look at MB and Ann.

MB looks Absolutely terrified and Ann looks absolutely horrified.

Nothing worked, but that didn't stop Mom and Dad from continuing their efforts.

They kept trying and trying and trying. To the same hilarious result.

But my favorite part of all is every one of these outrageous photos is lovingly placed in the photo album, right next to its equally outrageous neighbor.

You gotta love Mom and Dad. Dogged. Determined. Motivated.

With a great sense of humor.

Ellie, that was HYSTERICAL! I was LOL!! When I first saw the caption "they tried and they tried and they tried" I though it might refer to trying for a boy! But hey, this was definitely funnier! :)

Me, You, or Ellie said...

Oh my God, these are beyond awesome. Who or what the hell was terrorizing those poor girls? Was dad taking the photos, or some satanic child photographer? This is truly the funniest thing I've ever seen, we should send them to Awkward Family Photos.

Too cute, um, kind-of. MB really does look terrified in most of the shots. So funny funny.

Little did your mom and dad know at that time that there would still be four more girlies to throw into the chistmas card photo mix! Dogged. Determined. Motivated - indeed!
