Family Photo. . . Argh!

How do families produce those glossy Christmas card photos of their families, where all of the children are:
A. Present
B.Looking at the camera
C. Looking somewhat happy with the world?

This last is my favourite. Possibly because of Caelah's impish look into the camera. She's saying; "We've won." Or perhaps it's Gabriel's little eyes peeking over his brother's head. He's completely resigned to his brother's ways. But most likely it's Elijah's posture of complete stubborn refusal that speaks to me. You know, this photo is actually a most representative portrayal of our family. What exactly do perfect family photos offer anyways? All lies, I tell you.
