How to represent "split" family in church directory?

My wife and I are divorcing, have been separated for quite a while. We both attend the same church with our kids. Our church is getting ready to do a pictorial directory. I'm not sure how to handle this.

Clearly, we won't all be in the same picture. But it also doesn't seem right that one of us would get to have the kids in their picture, and the other one not. Especially since different groups in the church interact with each of us and the kids in different situations.
So in my opinion, the best option is for each of us to have a picture made with the kids. If someone looks through and thinks "huh, same kids" maybe they'll get the right clue on our situation? Or is it just weird?
