Any parent of multiple children (and lots of one-child families) knows that dressing for family holiday photos is easier said than done.
Who hasn't been there, frantically scrubbing at stains and tugging down sleeves while the photographer taps his foot? Worse, last-minute clothing issues don't lead to happy faces for the family photo.
