Look at the camera.  Yes.  Both of you.  Smile.  No, not the weird smile, the real one.  Both of you.  Susie, stop picking your nose.  Look up, Beth.  Now smile….smile….smmmiiiiiillleeee….

For anyone who’s ever tried to wrangle more than one child into a family photo shoot.  Add the pressure of needing at least one shot for the Christmas card, keeping everyone stain- and snot-free, and dealing with the inevitable meltdown of one or more kids and those photographers really ought to show up with tylenol.

Or tequila.  Whichever gets you through.
