Photos with the kiddos can be a stressful time. I know!
Here are some helpful tips to help you (and them) get through the session and have fun while you’re doing it!
Before your session, pack a bag with snacks, water and any small objects (like toys or lollipops) that might help us get their attention when it’s time for them to look at the camera. If they are old enough to understand you, it’s a good idea to prepare them for what’s to come before the session starts. Explain how much the photos mean to you so they know to be on their best behavior. A lot of families pick something fun in advance, as a treat for after the session, if they’re good listeners, like an ice cream cone, for example. It also helps if they’re bellies are full and they’ve had some good rest beforehand.
Once you prepare them physically and mentally, then feel free to give them (and you!) grace! They’re little, and we know that some days don’t always go as planned.
I’ve seen it all and will make sure to get you great photos, like the one below, regardless of their moods. My goal is to make this as fun and stress-free as it possibly can be for you and your family!
On a side note, I’d like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and give MY thanks to all my loyal clients, friends and family for your support and continued encouragement in creating beautiful, classic and timeless heirlooms for families all around the Ozarks.
Thank you! -Lynette Blecha
