Congrats to our winner NANCY G.!!

So the school year is in full swing and if your kids are ANYTHING like mine- they’ve already lost several supplies or are already in need of new ones. I’m determined to instill them, especially my son who has already managed to lose a few AHEM things this school year-with a sense of responsibility and ownership in his belongings- and to drive home the fact that these school supplies DO NOT GROW ON TREES- i.e.his parents need to WORK to pay for them.

    Love this! If we are doing family pictures I make sure we go to sleep early that night, and try to plan it so photos are shot in the late morning!

    MY tip for getting the perfect family photo is having a photographer who can make awesome funny faces!!! 😀 Also, secretly tickle the little ones sides!

  3. Kimberlie says

    My tip is to have someone else take it. I’ve tried too many times with the self timer, but it never seems to turn out well.

  4. Sarah Marie says

    Tip: Make sure all children have ate and had a nap. Bring something to distract them and snap a photo with smiles on their faces. Take as many as you need!

    I find the best way to get a perfect family photo is to make sure that every one has gotten lots of sleep, has a full belly and I hire a great photographer.
