2. Do try to look cute while your husband is playing with the timer on the camera. You never know when it's going to snap.
3. Centering the camera on your subject is important, nay vital, to your goal.
5. See Rule 2.
6. Even when the process is taking too long and your are in physical pain from it, maintain decorum.
7. Don't take yourself seriously.
