Say Cheese? Why I Stop Posing My Kids

This is what happens when I try to pose my kids together for a portrait.

About 99% of the pictures you see on this blog are candid or documentary style pictures. Like most parents, I want the cute, smiling happy pictures of my kids.  I soon realized that stopping (and bribing) them to make them "say cheese" just wasn't worth the fight.

Every once in a while, I will try to get them both to be still long enough to take a portrait.

And every time, I'm reminded of why that rarely happens.

What funny things do your kids do when you ask them to "say cheese"? I'd love to read about it in the comments.
