Family pictures. We want them, but we don’t necessarily look forward to having them taken, and sometimes we downright dread them. As a mom of six kids, I was in the latter camp. Between trying to pick out coordinating outfits, determining a location and then trying to keep all of the children happy during the event, I was exhausted before I even got started. I have since learned that it doesn’t have to be that way. With a little advanced planning, and a few tricks and tips, it is possible to end up with not only fantastic family photos, but a great experience as well.
