Where it all began: The original Kinsella family photo was shot in 1988. The four adult siblings take one every time they get together. From left: Mike, Eileen, Sharyn and Tim.

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.

'We started taking them long before date-stamped photos,' Mike Kinsella told the Huffington Post.
“其实在出现标日期的那张照片很久以前,我们就开始这样拍照。” 迈克·金赛拉这样告诉赫芬顿邮报记者。

The quartet has since moved to Texas together and one sibling now resides in Nebraska but they still gather to celebrate the ties that bind.

After years of taking their positions for pictures, the foursome decided to make it official and each got identical tattoos of the infamous family pose.

Repeat: The fab four strike the same pose in 1992 outside the home of Sharyn (second from the right), starting a tradition that would last for 25 years.

Family: On the day their mother died in 1997, the siblings remember her by striking their trademark pose on a beach in Galveston, Texas.

Take me out to the ball game: The sisters switched places for their 1999 shot at the Houston Astrodome, the last Astros game to be played at the stadium .

As time goes by: In 2006, at a fete for Mike's 50th birthday the family gets in line to celebrate the moment.

All Hearts Come Home: The Kinsellas return to Crescent Drive, the street they grew up on in Brick Township, New Jersey, in 2008 for a neighborhood reunion.

Formal affair: At the 2011 wedding of Sharyn's daughter Abby, the dressed up family strikes a familiar pose.

Inked: Though each sibling chose a different location for their tattoo, the subject was identical
