I get one chance. I set up the tripod, hope I aim it correctly, corral the family in position and cross my fingers. After one snap, they all lose interest and that's that. And the main reason why we haven't had a family picture posted in eons. This one came out decent. It's too dark and John and I are too hidden. But it is what it is. Maybe I can convince my family to try and sit for another one again soon. Sigh.
