2 days ago I found out that I was expected to be in my in-laws family portrait that is being taken as I type this.

At least you were asked to be in the family photo. Neither my dh or I have been asked to be in the family photo that my MIL has done every year {yes she doesn't want her oldest son in them.....go figure? right.

I think 2 days notice is advance enough to do this. Yes you should of gone & done it. And just so you know I'm not just a DIL, but a MIL of 3 son-in-laws.

I see family photos as future history.

Sorry if this isn't what you want to hear. I think you didn't go out of spite and you should have. 2 days is not exactly spur of the moment and you are NOT doing anything clearly. I think this wasn't very nice of you to do to your wife and dd. :(

Well, I don't necessarily agree with the other posts.
