Weird Family Tradition
The family that poses together – stays together. At least that’s the philosophy of the Kinsella clan, four siblings that have struck the same pose in snapshots for the past 25 years to record the momentous events in the family’s history. The New Jersey natives, Mike, Eileen, Sharyn and Tim, have been photographed in the same arrangement – with the sisters lifting one leg up while the brothers hold on to the girls’ ankles – for years. The close-knit family has recreated the pose for weddings, funerals, baseball games, birthday parties and just-because moments. They say the pose has long been a family favorite but their first saved photo hails from 1988.
