'Tis the season of quality family time and digging out old photo albums in hopes of embarrassing your little brother in front of his new significant other.

Last week, Bustle and Nine West launched #ForcedFamilyPhoto, a contest to show off the best and worst family photos you've taken over the years. Not surprisingly, you all have blown us away with adorable relics from childhood and in some cases, photographic evidence of those angsty coming-of-age years.

We're going to notify the winners once we've had a chance to thoroughly enjoy everything you've submitted, but for now — take a look at our favorite photo submissions so far.
