So here's the conversation I imagine our teenage photographer must be having tonight...
Photographer's Mom: "Hi Honey. How was work?"
Photographer: "Well, it was going great until this one family showed up. When they walked in I thought, 'This is going to be so easy! They look so nice and those two little boys are so cute!' Boy was I wrong!"
Mom: "Oh no! Did the kids cry?"
Photographer: "No! The little one kept making this horrible face and closing his eyes. When I'd tell him to smile he'd get all upset and tell me he was! The big one couldn't sit still. His hands were always in front of his face...and sometimes up his nose!"
Mom: "Were you able to get any good pictures?"
Photographer: "Well, I got one pretty good one. Lucky shot! I was posing the dad and one of the kids when the other kid just started climbing on his dad like he was a jungle gym or something. The mom just grabbed the climber and threatened everybody to stay still and smile. I think she said they'd better smile or they wouldn't get any of the cub scout popcorn she had stashed in her bag. I guess it worked... Of course the cheapskate had a coupon and since there was only one good picture she almost got out of there for free."
Photographer: "Yeah, she was totally embarrassed by her family's terrible behavior, so she bought another sheet, too."
