Finally, it's worth remembering that you want to capture pleasant memories. And that's unlikely to happen if you leap out from around every corner and shove a camera (iPhone or otherwise) in your mother's face or prevent the kids from opening the next gift because you haven't finished capturing their forced smile while posing with the last one. In short: Real memories are better than the ones you attempt to manufacture. Use your camera when appropriate and stay out of the way of the real joy of the season.
