Every year or so, I force my family to hike up a mountain/wander around a forest/etc. for our family self portraits so that I can print a large photo to hang above our mantle. I’d like to say we were lucky this year in that the field for the photos was less than a mile from our house, but unfortunately we had rain/lightning/thunder/hail while trying to get the kids to stand still and smile at the camera. Maybe we should hire someone next year??
