As most parents know, it takes lots of cajoling – and often bribery – to get kids to take a family photo. Even superstars like Victoria Beckham have to corral their family to get just the right holiday photo.
The fashion designer shared some behind-the-scenes footage of her family’s holiday photo shoot which proved she too struggles to get a usable family photo.

“Never work with kids or animals!,” Beckham wrote when she shared hilarious background footage from her family photo op. The video shows her children – Brooklyn, 21, Romeo, 18, Cruz, 15 and Harper, 9, getting ready to photos in front of a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.
Like many moms, the former Spice Girl could be heard commenting on her children’s outfit choices.
“Are you sure you don’t want to put trousers on,” she asked Brooklyn at one point. She also commented on Cruz’s graphic sweatshirt, “Excellent-that sums up your personality.”
The kids weren’t the only ones giving Beckham trouble – she and David Beckham’s three dogs were also refusing to poste for the camera.
While the dogs were jumping around, Harper yelled, “It’s a very sad Christmas!” Her entertained mom responded, “It’s not a sad Christmas. It’s a happy Christmas. PICK UP A DOG!”
Despite the chaos, Beckham was able to get a beautiful shot of her kids which she shared on Instagram. “Kisses at Christmas,” she captioned the photo. “Lots of love from all of us.”
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City.
