is it possible to use “on the one hand, ….on the other hand” as a means of enumeration?


Is such usage of the idiom mentioned above possible:

On the one hand, people in the first picture are happy, while in the second picture they are upset. On the other hand, the family in the fist picture are busy doing something interesting, whereas in the second picture they are sitting idly.

Yes, there is no issue except that you need to show that it is “the same family.” Therefore, use “the same” with “family” in the second sentence.
