If your family is anything like mine, let’s just say that family photo day is always an adventure. Scientists are trying to calculate why it’s so impossible to gather everyone in one place at the right time, in the right clothes, and making the right kind of face for the picture, but so far they’ve come up empty-handed.
Judging by these animal family photos below, it might be time to start taking cues from our furry friends. These family photos are absolutely adorable and may just inspire you to try something different for your next family photo.
