“Can I Have You Move a Little to the Outside?”

No, this post isn’t about real estate photography trade secrets — I don’t divulge those.

It’s about family photographers.

Apparently, in composing an extended family portrait — we had ours done this weekend in conjunction with a Jewish holiday — there is a rule of thumb that “in-law” spouses are to be placed to the inside.

That way, if any of the couples divorce, the family can’t simply crop them out — and instead have to come in for new photos.

And you thought the photographer was re-positioning you because you were too tall/short/fair/dark etc.!

P.S.:  The photographer said the above with a wink — but his tone suggested he wasn’t entirely kidding.
