Naked Family Picture

My daughter went to me and my husband and asked whe was going to get out family picture taken. It was about 8 years since we got our family picture taken. She said her best friend (which her family is nude all the time too) is considering to take a nude family picture. The mother (my bestfriend) already went to the mall and secretly asked the manager of the picture place if they do that type of pictures. He said they do about twice a year. He said that he would take the family to the far end shot room and close the drapes. After years in this business, they relieze there are alot of families that prefer to be nude and that is business too. How would that look like in th middle of our wall, a picture of all of us nude, posing. People who come to our house would see us nude anyway. Sometimes, my husband would get dressed, but for me and my daughter, we always stay nude in our house. I think it would be ok. If they would see that picture they would of seen us naked anyway. For a bonus, my husband said he would keep photos of us in his wallet too. His friends already came by and seen us. I'm trying to imagine if your spouse shows a stranger a picture of his/her family and they were nude, would that stranger be embarrassed. I'd asked my chat friend who went back to her homeland in Europe. She said it was common to have families to be nude in their home and at the beach and spas. If someone show her a naked family picture she would say it was cute. But we all know this is America. I'm guessing it would be ok, as long as those pictures stays in the house. What do you guys think?

I think that a nude family picture, tastefully taken and displayed, would be just beautiful. What better way to display the joys of family nudity and to tell the world (or at least your guests) that you are proud of your family and proud that you are all nudists?? I say go ahead and do it but please let us know how it goes and what the reactions are.

Personally I see no issues with a family photo taken that way. I can understand your feelings of what may happen to it in the far future. But by then it will be our kids problem and hopefully by then it would not matter. That it would be more acceptable.

You have to admit that public nudity over the last 50 years has become more accepted then what it was. So hopefully the future will be more open to it.

If you always stay nude at home, and everybody see you naked anyway. Why should you wear clothes on your family picture?

I don't have a problem going naked

I'd love for my family to consider this too. I totally admire what you've done. Have you considered sharing it on EP ?

Can I see that family picture?

I say go for it!

Pose naturally nude as God's creations. Be proud of who you are.

In terms of social nudity, this country is so prudish/backward that most Americans would frown upon a nude family photo. I envy the families that have had nude group shots taken.

If you feel confortable doing the photo that way, there is no matter. For sure your husband isn't going to show your naked pics to a complete stranger, perhaps he could bring a pic of the family clothed ans an other one nude and show every one depending on the confident he is with who is showing it.

it sounds perfectly fine to me

I think it's cool. Showing no shame. But I do think that I wouldn't show family naked pics to everyone. If your friends know that you're nudist then it's cool. But to your non nudist friends they not be comfortable seeing them nor would they accept it. But still I think it's cool.

my wife is against nudism, but I think that it would be great to have a nudist family. I would be proud to display a nude family portrait. I might not put it right at the entrance of the house but in a more discreet location like the stairwell going upstairs to the bedrooms or something like that would be awesome.

It sounds a great picture to have on your wall

What a good idea. I think that I'll ask my wife is she'll consider this too.

I think you are right as long it stays in the house,depends on how old your daughter is in America it could be seen as child ****.

I wanted my family to do this for years just never did it, had a friend artist set up to do a nude of my wife for 10 th she backed out when i got it set up, till this day i wished she had always wanted one for our mantle.

Well... we took the pictures. The photographer gave us 15 minutes to get ready as she finished up her prior client. I was teasing with my husband that we should walk around the mall nude. I was playing with his penis as I was joking. The photographer came in and we all stood or sat where she told us too. The first picture was me sitting in the chair and everyone else was standing behind me or or sitting in front of me. My husband was behind me, to my right. The photographer asked us if we wanted to wait for a little bit. I asked her why? She pointed by my right side of my face. I asked if I had something on my face and started to fell it. She pointed again and I turned to have my husband rock hard penis in my face. I'd laughed and said it was fine and to continued on. He said I'd played with him too much. I just petted his penis and said it was ok. So half of those pictures, he was hard. At the editting, she asked if we wanted to do those pictures again. The family agreed we didn't mind it, since we see him hard most of time anyway. I'd picked up the pictures yesterday and I hung up that first picture in our family room.

Well done am so pleased to learn that you have done this. I always knew you would have the courage to display a nude family picture from the fact that you live practically naked :)

That's awesome. Good for you

Thanks. My neighbor came over yesterday and saw the pictures. She said my husband's hard on looked very nice and was in good taste. She said it shows how we really are.

There you go - that's proves what I said earlier about the way women handle such matters. Well done!

Your welcome. :)

dragondenoir,

That is great you were able to get photos of the real you.

I applaud you and your family for having the picture taken and for hanging it.

Since just about everyone who enters our home sees us nude, we have no concerns of them also seeing nude family photo's. If we are dressed for some reason, or if someone is offended, they don't have to look at the photo either. Most comments are favorable and most have said they wish they were comfortable enough to have nude family photo's as well :)

Well done and i must say, great response to your husband's "situation?" I think the photographer handles it very well too but you know, i think women cope with such things better than men anyway! Congratulations and display your picture with pride.

Good suggestion. I hope the picture comes out well. I have a family photo taken some years ago standing in front of a "western" style facade at a nudist park in Arizona.

A lot of familes do that. I have only one female friend who covers herself if children are present. The rest of my female friends, and I just stay nude. Clothes are a human invention. There was a time when everyone walked around nude. What is the big deal?

I think thats great and I am seriously thinking of doing one of our family as they are all older and have not done a portrate in many years thanks for the idea.

I like you family and friends attitude towards the idea. I would like to have a painting or especially a body casting of me to put up.

I too , will agree . It's your house , and down to you as a family . Great story too , really enjoyed reading it , thanks for sharing .

What a beautiful idea and I think it would be great to have a naked family picture on display where ever you wish there are no laws saying that you cannot display such a picture I am sure although certain puritanical's may disapprove that is there problem not yours.

Of course you should do so! Just be sure to be naked for quite some time otherwise the skin will show traces of clothing. And take care everyone is really shown full frontal, it's all about the genitals for such an occasion. Smoothly shaved looks much better. Men would like to stroke their penises for some time to look longer. And obviously be barefoot. We have a lot of such portraits, all by a self timer though. A real photographer will make a difference!

I think that it is entirely up to you and your family.

It's your family, and your home. If you are okay with others seeing you really nude at home, well then a photo is okay too!

dragondenoir,

I agree. It is your home and what is the difference if you have a photo of the family nude, when you are naked in person. Seems to make sense to me. I do have a couple nudes both alone and with some good friends and people have commented positively on it. They love my confidence with displaying them.

I also, have photos on my iPod since I don't carry a real wallet. If people ask to see them I show it. Why not?

More power to ya' - go for it!

I think it's awesome.
