Not so much kicking and screaming, but I definitely dragged them to get a family portrait done. I brought props, greens, a wreath, scarves. For a bunch of boys it was major eye roll time, but they knew better than to raise their protest flag. The photographer was great, very experienced and not even a little ruffled by 3 boys who kept cutting up during the whole thing.
I do love this picture. It was supposed to be sort of a joke, but I think it's sweet.
