Some people don't have the most relaxing times with their family. For some, the holidays (and indeed, any family gathering) can be filled with tension and awkward moments, made worse by being forced to smile for the camera. This is not the case for Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. The celebrity couple is always camera-ready, no matter the scene. And judging from the ridiculously cute photos of the duo with their twins, Harper and Gideon, being photogenic is a family trait.

Vacation Time

Even celebrities need to relax and unwind, and NPH and his brood does it in style. The happy family soaked up some sun in Cancun. Jet-lagged and travel-weary? Not these stylish (and smiling) twins.

The Force Is Strong

A long time ago in a Halloween far, far away.... A photo posted by Neil Patrick Harris (@nph) on Oct 31, 2015 at 1:54pm PDT

Halloween is the time of year everyone likes to step up their game (especially celebrities). From wild parties to insanely intricate costumes, stars attempt to outdo themselves and each other. Family costumes are especially popular for those with small kids, but if you're not a member of the Harris-Burtka crew, it might be time to throw in the towel. These sensational Star Wars costumes (and everyone striking a dramatic pose) have us rooting for the family to make a cameo in the next installment.

Easter Fun

The family that poses together stays together, and the beaming faces of everyone in this pic is proof! Dressed to impress, Harris and Burtka show off their charming twins. But the kids, in flawless holiday attire, are the real show-stoppers. Easter never looked so good.

Bedtime Stories

The three loves of my life. A photo posted by Neil Patrick Harris (@nph) on May 10, 2013 at 12:31pm PDT

Neil Patrick Harris isn't in this family photo -- mainly because he's the one behind the camera. This sweet and authentic moment, with David Burtka reading a bedtime story to a sleep Gideon and Harper, is touching and real. While elaborate costumes and amazing locales can make for fun photos, it's the simple moments that people end up treasuring -- and this is certainly one for the books.

Cooking Up Fun

When your dad is a professional chef, you learn your way around the kitchen in a hurry (or just help out by taste-testing new recipes). Gideon is clearly adept at cooking, getting in on the holiday fun by whipping up some tasty treats with his parents. Harper isn't in this picture -- maybe she's keeping an eye on the guys in her family to ensure their are no kitchen disasters?

Baby Love

How's this for a blast from the past? Even as bouncy, chubby-cheeked babies, Harper and Gideon knew when to flash a smile for the cameras. But make no mistake about it: toddlers don't care if their parents are famous actors or chefs. These two have put in some serious diaper duty -- just one of the things all parents have in common.

Wedded Bliss

After a decade together and two children, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka finally tied the knot at a beautiful ceremony in Italy. Elton John performed for the happy couple, and the guest list was a star-studded event. But the newlyweds were careful to keep the focus on what the union was really all about: their family, their children, and their lives together. Ain't love grand?
