Parents love family pictures, always longing for that one perfect shot to put in their photo albums that they could show off to their neighbors and colleagues. However, far from every picture turns out great. Sometimes — with some very entertaining results. What are supposed to be impressive family photos sometimes turn out to be some of the best moments of sibling rivalry, shenanigans and weirdness to be ever captured on camera.

Bored Panda brings you this list of hilarious sibling antics, immortalized during family photoshoots. I’ve got a few similar examples in my photo albums, and I’m sure that you do as well. So scroll down, vote for your favorite funny pictures, and be sure to share with your siblings and parents. Once you’re done, take a gander at Bored Panda’s post about two sisters who are polar opposites (see if you can spot at least five differences).

Siblings are supposed to love and support each other unconditionally. They’re also supposed to look and act properly, especially when their pictures are being taken. At least, that’s the theory. This theory can be seen to break down. A lot. And the chances of that happening are proportional to how badly you want a nice photo for your collection.

We know from practice that some siblings love to poke fun of each other more than anything else in the world. Sibling rivalry is an undeniable fact of growing up together, whether it’s born from jealousy or the need to compete. It can be healthy if it doesn’t turn into an endless series of screaming or boxing matches.

Unfortunately, not all fights between siblings are possible to avoid. That's why, according to KidsHealth, it is important to know what to do. Often, it’s best to let your kids sort their own interpersonal problems out themselves because always stepping in can stifle their ability to act independently in the future.

If an actual physical fight breaks out and there’s a chance of your kids really getting hurt, you should separate them, but avoid blaming any one of them. However, if your kids are simply goofing around and being, well, kids, it’s far better to snap a few pictures of their silliness instead of telling them off. So grab your camera and make some unforgettable memories.

I Want That Fish! Son Improvises Without Fishing Gear, Yanks Carp Outta Lake, Shocks Both Fish And Sister

"My son and daughter were canoeing at a park, and James saw the tail of this huge grass carp and determined he wanted it. With no fishing rod or gear, he just hopped out of the canoe and grabbed it up. He loved on it for a little, let the mammarazzi shoot some pics, and released the shocked fish. Then I sent him home with his dad, since he smelled like a giant fish."

The Mummy

The Mummy

“This is a photo of my younger sister, (mummified), my older brother, (proud as ever), and me (“I didn’t do it”). My favorite part of this picture is how, even though you can’t see my little sister’s face, you can tell she is smiling in a very “TA-DA!” way, and I can only imagine how proud she was to be our model. I don’t remember when this was taken, but I can look at the craftsmanship in the placement of the streamers, and the excellent color blocking techniques, and I know that’s my fabulous work – my brother must have been the project manager/supervisor. My siblings and I have talked about recreating this picture for our mom now that we are all in our 20’s, but it has been really hard to drum up this collection of oddly specific t-shirts.”
