I haven’t run into many families who ponder on getting family photos done with fond feelings. I’d like to think after a session with me, all those frets and worries melt away, since my goal is to make it more of a fun, hang out, and cut-it-loose-with-boisterous-activities-together type of time. But when you’re in a situation when time is tight, or people are on the edge of meltdown (this is for the wee ones all the way up to Mom and Dad), you might want to pull out the last ditch effort. Tell everyone to fake it. Cheesy smiles and laughs may not make for the mantle, but it’ll be a picture worth keeping. That’s what I’m doing with ours below, and it makes me giggle every time I look at it.
