What makes a card-worthy photo? {Win a Shutterfly promo code!}

A family portrait session doesn’t always bring out the best in my five, two and one year-old… maybe that’s just my kids? ;) I love the sweet moments that I can capture with my phone and preserve with Instagram. So often those little glimpses provide better insight into life in the Bennett family, and that’s what I want to send to our friends and family.
