Is this user error, bad lens, too high of expectations, typical of a wide lens in this circumstances

This is a 12-40 olympus lens at 12mm me with my hind end almost on Las Vegas BLVD and barely squeezing the family in the frame.  Purely a snapshot with an uncooperative relative as well.

is the distortion in the face of my daughter typical at this FL?  Sorry for the lack of EXIF it was a JPEG downloaded to an iPad while traveling this week.

Thanks in advance for any input, I use this lens for paid as well as casual opportunities and it is a little disconcerting to see this if I had a large group shot I may need a different approach going forward.  Either in technique or equipment.

This was one of about 3 I have seen this distortion in.

Here's to learning something new everyday, and remembering it the next.
