Dad: Okay, everybody, take your places.

Mom: We’re in our places. Can’t the photographer just take the photo?

Dad: We have to pose. The whole point is to look natural.

Mom: If you wanted a natural family photo, why are we in a portrait studio in the middle of a sitting?

Dad: I want us to stand in front of a nice background and pose with nice props. I’m tired of looking at the photos that we take. They’re not very good and require hours of touching up or creative cropping.

Mom: Instead, we’re supposed to look natural wearing color- coordinated clothing and standing in unlikely poses.

Dad: Don’t be like that. Generations to come will cherish this family photo.

Mom: I doubt it.

Dad: How about if I ask the photographer to take some shots just of you?

Mom: You mean like the headshots Hollywood stars get?

Dad: Uh, sure, if that’s what you’d want.

Mom: Well, in that case, I’ll need to have my hair cut, get my make-up done, and buy a new outfit...

Dad: What have I gotten myself into?!
