I guess, like all mom's, we just want a family photo. There is an awesome new app for iPhone that turns it into a remote for my camera while it is connected to the Mac. I didn't remove it from the images...I think it's cool.
With a home studio I figure I am entitled to a family portrait on every holiday. My boys are pretty good at looking at the camera, as I have demanded it from them since birth. We are a bunch of hams....especially after church when all we want to do is sleep and the crazies set in.
