Everyone has experienced the pain of a “family picture fail.”
When my daughters were 7, 5, and 2, I took them to my favorite trailhead for what I was sure would be the perfect photoshoot. Actually, I wasn’t sure about it at all. But I was hopeful. So hopeful.
When we got there, the wind was a’blowin, and my seven-year-old’s eyes were a’rollin’. Seriously, she rolled her eyes the whole time. I was so mad.
Being the professional photographer that I am, and knowing how important it is to just keep your cool in these situations–I lost my cool and I yelled. After that didn’t work, I just gave up.
The next day, I made everybody dress up and do it all again, with results worse than the first.
