Kim Kardashian's family portrait struggles are relatable to so many parents

Kim Kardashian West is “so relatable” — seriously.

After sharing a family photo on social media Wednesday, many people are saying that the reality star is just like them.


With a vintage-like filter and trendy outfits, the snap seems to be pretty close to perfect. But Kim, who’s holding weeks-old baby Chicago, shared not all is what it seems.

“I don’t think you really understand how hard it is to take a good family pic. This was all we got before all three kids started crying. I think I cried too,” she captioned the photo in which only North is smiling. Her parents are brooding and Saint is distracted. “One hand holding the baby and the other hand grabbing the back of Saints shirt because he kept running away lol,” she described in a follow-up tweet.


Followers are relating to her experience by sharing their own family photo tales of triumph, or tragedy, in response. “I feel ur pain! Family pics are so hard to take but the memories are so precious!” one fan commented on Kim’s Instagram post. “I know the feeling. there’s always one blinking, turning a head or doing weird faces… all in the picture drill,” another commiserated.








Some are even posting their own family photos in solidarity.







Even photographers are relating to the process. “Trust ever parent/teacher/ photographer has been there done that. Welcome to the club,” one follower wrote on Instagram.


Many fans are stunned that Kim thinks the rest of the world doesn’t struggle to get a good photo, when it’s in fact quite the opposite. “Everyone with more than 1 kid understands,” one Instagram follower pointed out. “Oh lord!!! Trust & believe… any mom understands the struggle!!! but this looks good!!!,” said another. “I think the one that doesn’t understand how hard it is to take a picture is you Kim Kardashian… many other families deal with it every day in more challenging and hardest situations ..” a third pointed out.






Others are praising the businesswoman for being honest about her behind-the-scenes struggle in this moment, even if the final product is seemingly flawless. “[M]an it’s quite nice to see she’s like any other family,” someone commented on the Instagram post.
