Default Shooting a picture, with a print in mind ??

Hi all,
Should one shoot images certain ways, if a certain print is in mind?
(frame an image a certain way, use a specific lens --- knowing that I will want an 8x10 print)

For example:
Using a Nikon D100, and shooting raw, I bring in an image (NEF) into Photoshop with the following default dimensions:
Pixel Width: 3008, Pixel Height: 2000
Doc Width: 10.027, Doc Height: 6.667
Resolution: 300 dpi

Picture: A team photo consisting of 3 rows of kids.

Problem: There is no way that I can get a true 8x10 out of the above without losing subject matter (cutting a kid off on the end).

Objective: To get a 8x10, while keeping the identical image content as above.

Should I have taken the above into account when shooting the original image? Is this possible?
