Family Portraits with Jesus

posted by Jason Boyett

If you are like me, then you know that the thing that’s missing from your family portraits is the Lord Jesus Christ. And not just any Jesus, but a youngish white-dude Jesus with a clean complexion and a nicely trimmed beard. And a robe.

Well, you’re in luck, because a photography studio in Utah now offers the holiest of props: a real, live Jesus to put in your portrait!

At Kay Paintings & Photography in Salt Lake City, the proprietor wants everyone to “feel the joy of seeing their family with Christ.” So for a couple hundred bucks, 1-3 of your children can get an 11×14 photograph of them feeling joy with the King of Kings.

I am not making this up. But I wish I were. Click here to see more photographic examples from Kay Paintings & Photography.

[Thanks, Christian Nightmares, for alerting us to this praiseworthy photo package.]

I hate to be one who disparages another person’s artwork, but these are pretty bad. Why does everyone look plastic and all the backgrounds look pastel?
I’m interested in what the photo session is like. Is the Jesus guy there? Or is he inserted later?

I think the Jesus guy is actually there. In real life. Then the backgrounds seem to have been added (poorly) in Photoshop.

If they’d do one with life-size Flying Spaghetti Monster, I’d be taking my kids in.

I think the little girl sitting on the ground is not buying this whole gig. There will be therapy to work this crap out someday…

Wow. I really have nothing else to say.
(well, except that I’m kind of astonished that none of the guardian angel people are bashing you for this…)

I really don’t see this as any different then taking a picture with Superman, Wonderwoman, Spiderman, the X-men, Micky Mouse or other comic book characters. And if you believe in Jesus, what’s the difference with this and taking pictures with other historical figures such as George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Napolean, Julius Ceasor, etc. ?

There seems to be some photo manipulation going on there too. His widow’s peak doesn’t seem entirely natural.
Ever see that kids show “Lazytown”, with the puppet-kids, and the real girl with a pink wig, and the villain who played by a person, but his head looks all rubbery and his chin is enormous?
It’s kinda like that. An unsettling mixture of real and unreal.

Jon H:
Agreed. My kids were into “Lazytown” for a brief but terrifying season of our lives.

My Introvert Interview
On Monday, author Adam McHugh delivered a guest post about the "snarling 8-headed monster" of the writing process.

Harold Camping: "Invisible Judgment Day"
When the rapture didn't occur as predicted on May 21, 2011, Harold Camping had a few options. Here is how he could have responded to the failed prediction, in descending levels of crazy: 1. He could announce that he was wrong. This is the most reasonable option and was therefore unexpected. I wou

The Phases of Writing (Adam McHugh)
