It took me literally 47 pictures to get one good one of each of the children and a good one together. This time of year, I try to keep them looking good enough so that if everyone is in a good enough mood, I can snap a quick picture. That has always worked better for me than dressing them up and posing them. It has worked so far. Just moments after I got all the good ones, the night quickly spiraled downward! I'm glad I was prepared that day! Happy Holidays from the Tates!
