How Not To Take Family Photos

One: Do not let children choose where to sit.

 Two: Do not choose a windy day.

Three: Do not choose unwilling participants.

Four: Do not site everyone in shadow.

Five: Do not choose a time where children are tired and/or hungry.

Six: Do not try to be funny in order to make children smile.

Seven: Do not expect a perfect family shot.

Eight: Do not rely on technology.

Nine: Do not let the dog off.

Ten: Don't focus on what went wrong, the difficulties of getting everyone together and facing the camera, or the [tiny] imperfections. Rather enjoy the memory of a family together, loving each other and having fun together!
