The Dashley Parents (@thedashleys) describe themselves as “an average couple trying to keep their sex together” and often document their family’s outings on TikTok.

In one Videothey said they got the perfect family portrait by following just four simple steps.

“I’ve heard that digging a heart in the sand and sticking your phone in is the best family picture you’ve ever seen,” the father began.

He filmed the hole he and his family had just dug and revealed the first step is to dig it about a foot deep.

Step Two: Smooth the edges.

He gathered his wife and three young children around the hole to prepare for the shot.

Step three and four: Set your phone to wide-angle lens and turn on the self-timer for as long as you like.

Pointing upwards at the adorable clan, the camera captured the outline of the heart, with all faces smiling.

With some black and white and some color versions, the photos looked like something out of a postcard.

“It worked,” they gushed in the caption, revealing they dug the hole in their sandbox.

Viewers liked the idea.

“I’m going to Hawaii soon and doing that too,” one person wrote.

“This is so cool,” praised another.

The end product was an epic and enchanting portrait that looked like a postcard
