No matter what kind of industry you’re in, it feels great to work with people who trust and belive in you! I have watched this family grow and move through life since our Stroller Strides days. This is not their first session with me. I am proud to say that they happily give me their full confidence. This gives me a little more wiggle room to do what I do best–getting families to play games with each other to ensure great smiles and sweet moments.
For this family we have always chosen locations and activities that would suit the girls. They aren’t known for saying cheese and looking at the camera. Some people are bigger hams than others and that is no big deal. Some moms get lucky and get those kids who are born to pose. I have a niece who would run every time a camera was turned on. Other parents have kids that have trouble with eye contact. The trick is not to make them stay still. EMBRACE THE MOVEMENT!
If you have those kids who won’t look at the camera, readjust your expectations and realize that the best photos are ones that may not include everyone looking and saying cheese. There is no greater memory than those made in childhood, playing with their parents.
