Just thought I'd mention the blog post I just typed out. It's roughly extracted from the workshop material I teach, and should be helpful for those who find family portraits uncomfortable, intimidating, or just plain old unappealing.

Rather than typing it all out here, I'll just add the link: http://photodino.wordpress.com

Great advice! The past few weeks, I've been thinking about the exact same tips you've brought up in your rules. Thanks for the write up!

Even though I'm not into family portraits/group portraits, the info was very useful. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
