How wonderful, let’s hire a photographer and get great family pictures. Sounds easy enough, not so if your children don’t want to cooperate. Lessons learned, schedule times around your children’s nap and feeding times. Seems obvious, but sometimes, you end up booking the time according to the photographer’s availability.
Two weeks ago, we had a photographer friend of ours come over to take pictures. Kids don’t like standing still for long periods of time, (adults don’t either for that matter), so work fast and have fun. Even the shots where the kids are trying to get away or crying can be cute years from now.
