When we were kids, it was once a year for the Christmas card. Mom would get all six of us together for a photo. Some of us would be smiling and at least one of us would be scowling. One year around Christmas, Mom made an effort to get all her kids, their spouses and the grandkids together for a photo. One grandchild was late and my baby was tired. I didn’t understand what why she was going to the effort of making this photo happen.
I do now. This episode is about why to take group shots and a few things I’ve learned to make it as painless as possible.
The photo above is the photo of my great grandparents and grandmother. Below is the photo I took at my grandmother’s funeral service.
And for fun, my brothers.
