How to take great photos of kids

Life is Good: six kids looked at the camera and smiled!

This happened! 
Six kids, all looking at the camera and smiling! 
For real! They all stood still. They all looked forward. They all seemed happy. 
How? No idea! 
But I can tell you that, as it happened, Mariah Carey appeared on stage left and began to sing, "There can be miracles...when you believe." Followed by an angel choir singing the "Hallelujah Chorus".  The sun shown brighter, unicorns pranced by, and glitter sprinkled down, ever so gently, from white, fluffy clouds while leprechauns tossed golden coins in the air. Both moms sprouted jeweled crowns and super hero capes and had a perfectly-lit glow about them.

Okay, not really. But it should have happened this way. 
People, this just doesn't happen at our house! 
IF I can get the older two to look at the camera at the same time, the Littlest One has run off out of camera shot. 
Or he's looking at the other two. 
Add three other kids, and, typically, mayhem ensues. 
But not on this day. 
And for that, it deserves this little, celebratory rant! 
Success! ; )
