*Pick out clothes and make sure they are clean and wrinkle free before picture day.
*Plan to arrive early so you aren’t stressed if you get stuck at every light on the way in.
*Laugh off the things that aren’t going perfectly. The picture with your child making a funny face might end up being your favorite. Capture your family the way it really is, rather than forcing the perfect family photo.
*If the tension is creeping back up… take a deep breath.
