Not your everyday school "mug-shot"

I've often wondered why we allow our children to have their pictures taken as if they were cattle. They heard them into the cafeteria, line them up, sit them all on the very same chair in front of the very same background and take one shot. Really, even basketball players get two free-throws. There is the hope of "re-takes" where they repeat the same behavior that got the first bad picture. The fastest way to make yourself crazy is to do the same thing you have already done and expect a different outcome. So think outside the box and use your surroundings. Encourage your children to play and have fun so their natural beauty can shine through. Happy back to school! (that's for every stay at home mother that just survived a very long summer.)
