Awkward Family Photos: Why Are These Families Naked?

Awkward Family Photos

Not everyone wants a typical family photo when they have their portrait taken. Some like to dress alike (to show that they're all together?), others like to wear costumes or bring props (because their stuff is cool?). But some just want to keep is simple... and not wear clothes! Yes, naked family photos are a thing. Need proof? Check out these Awkward Family Photos.

Why Are These Families Naked?

Awkward Family Photos began back in 2009 when friends Mike Bender and Doug Chernack found an awkward vacation photo hanging in Bender's parents' home. Realizing there are likely many others with similar photos, the duo decided to start a website where people can share their own awkward experiences. A week later, they introduced the world to Awkward Family Photos.

The site also has all sorts of awkwardness in book form: Awkward Family Holiday Photos!
