Hard to tell. None of them look particularly stylish from any era.

Boy, this comment really got my attention! Had to go back and look at the pic. By George, you may have something there! Wow. That would explain the odd sense of out-of-place, out-of-time that I picked up on as a Mormon missionary family, or something. I think you nailed it. And it could be any era, almost, except for the boys' skinny ties. Well, and the Vans, which mark them as immigres. And the one boy's earrings. Since when do young men wear two earrings? I guess that's a more recent trend, vs. just one earring?

Yes. That's a VERY recent trend in the US. Since maybe 2012, and this family looks conservative so it's out-of-place.

I guess we won't know anymore if the OP doesn't come back and solve the puzzle.

I'm guessing 1990s, maybe circa 1990. The halter dress was in style in the 1990s. It became a thing for young men to wear earrings in the 1990s & later. (the young guy on the rt in the photo is wearing two earrings)

It looks too dated to be 2000 or later, IMO.

Late 80's. None of the male's hair is long and the dress looks like an 80's dress to me.

These people dress a little foreign to me. Even the back drop is overdone.
I thought maybe they were Eastern or Southern European - Bulgarian, Albanian or Roma occurred to me. Vans have been out for a long time. I think the parents, particularly the mom, dresses that way to this day. The boys look as though they were forced into suits.

I am going with early 1990s.

I'm going to guess 2010. That one boy's hair style reminds me of the late murdering Patriot's football player Aaron Hernandez. Women's hair was not like that in the 80s nor that type of dress.

I agree with those saying it's unlikely the photo is from the US, so that makes it a lot tougher to try to pinpoint a timeframe for those of us in the US. Some things in it seem kind of dated to us, but could be normal for whatever location they are in

Could be. I'm leaning toward Georgian, or elsewhere in the Caucasus, or who knows--maybe Turkey. I see, now, what an earlier poster was talking about regarding the ties: there are 3 different tie styles in the photo. it's almost as if each of the men grabbed whatever tie they could find in the public market, or a 2nd-hand clothing store, or something, lol! That's odd.

Seems very very 90’s to me. I’m amused by all the people who don’t think Vans shoes were prevalent in the 90’s. And don’t forget, the lead singer of dreadful boy band New Kids on the Block wore earrings in both ears.
