The Taylor crew doesn't really take family photos. It's not that we're against them per se; it's that we, for lack of a more eloquent word, suck at them.
In addition to agonizing over a sartorial strategy, there's consternation (Bryan, due to the fact that I never tell him about the pics until the very last minute), crying jags (Audrey...ok, and me too), Swearing (me, sadly), and bickering (everyone). Suffice to say, it is a (very) bad scene.
So for the second consecutive year, we're going with the photo booth approach for our Minted holiday cards. We like the photo booth. We jam our little family into one at every possible opportunity. It's an obsession. Once in the tiny space we laugh; we smooch; we have fun; we're happy. So while our approach might be a little redundant, it works, and at this stage in life, we're big fans of doing what works.
Ok, now it's your turn. Tell me your secret to a good family photo in a comment on this post by midnight on Thanksgiving (this Thursday), and I'll pick one of you lovely peeps to receive $200 toward holiday cards at Minted.
I'll announce the winner on Friday so you can bust out your cards over the weekend.
