I have previously blogged about the need to prepare your kids and/or family for their upcoming photo shoot.  However, I omitted to advise that there is also a need to prepare your husband too.

For some people, preparing the man of the house for a family photo shoot is just simply exhausting.  If your husband is optimistic about your photo shoot, you are in luck but if he is somewhat reluctant, here are a few things you can do to help him (and yourself) out:
