Kim Kardashian is an expert when it comes to managing the limelight. Her lifestyle empire of branded products is perennially successful in part because her otherworldly fame stays grounded in relatable moments. Like how unpleasant and tricky it is to take a family photo.
Late Wednesday she shared a good one. But rather than framing the photo as an airbrushed celebration of her diverse, healthy, and happy family, Kardashian got real in the caption: “I don’t think you really understand how hard it is to take a good family pic. This was all we got before all three kids started crying. I think I cried too.”

The candor was so refreshing that it sparked a long chain of replies, jolting the tweet into a verified Twitter Moments slideshow.
Twitter users even had some good advice for Kardashian and her gang.
“I started telling my three kids that if they all smile at the camera we only have to take one picture….it surprisingly works! And of course the baby can do whatever they want and will be adorable!” Bethany De Paz wrote after seeing Kardashian’s family. “Also, your family pic turned out adorable.”
