I also reminded them (including the big man) that the better they smiled and enjoyed themselves, the faster the
torture photo session would be over.
Does anyone else have to use threats/bribery for a family photo session??
Maybe it's because they are so used to me taking pictures of them without posing that they're spoiled.
Since I had to catch everyone with clean hair/teeth, I decided to break my photo rule about daylight and go right after church. I should have followed the rule. The sun cast funny shadows and made everyone squint. Note to self: 2pm is NOT a good time to take outdoor photos unless it's overcast.
This ended up being my favorite family shot, but again, the shadows. Oh well, even the Queen can't have it all. ;)
