Monthly Tip #3- What my toddler and I do while the big kids are at school…

I KNOW! I KNOW! WE DO A PHOTOSHOOT OF COURSE!

This month’s tip is about getting great pictures AND having a fun time with your kids at the same time. No child wants to sit there while you beg them to smile for twenty minutes. Trust me, I had to learn the hard way. My best advice is to put the camera down from your face sometimes and interact with them! Make it a game! Play simon says, make animal sounds together, let them take a break and explore a bit (and even then you can get some great candid and detail shots!). I have been taking pictures of my kids for years, and it became a somewhat contentious topic for us for awhile, until I changed my approach. Enjoy your kids and not just your camera!!!

WE FIND TREASURE…

AND MAKE GOOFY FACES…

AND LOOK AT EACH OTHER LIKE WE ARE CRAZY…

STOP TO SMELL THE FLOWERS…

PONDER THE MEANING OF LIFE…

GIGGLE LIKE CRAZY!

AND STOP FOR SNACKS… WAIT! DON’T EAT THAT!!!

AND OTHER TIMES WE JUST “HANG”
