Meeting and photographing new families is my favorite thing. As a photographer, I have learned to adapt to whatever personalities enter my studio. Every family, every person, is different. It keeps things exciting, however.
In some cases, kids smile and have fun. In other cases, I will be introduced to little people that have to be bribed to smile for the camera. (This happens all of the time.)
You know they say..."The customer is always right." With kids, they get whatever they want if it means good photos.
Behind the scenes, it isn't always smiles and rainbows. Sometimes, tears happen. It comes with the job. Just know, I will do whatever I can to help make your family session the best. I am a patient person and have learned to be even more so since starting photography 5 years ago.
PARENT TIPS: In this particular session, this little lady smiled for the camera but had her moments. Her parents ROCKED it by bringing her favorite snacks and "peek-a-boo" happened more than once. If you have little ones, do it like her parents did and be prepared for a little that just needs a little "bribing" to cooperate. She ROCKED it in the last round of photos and THIS happened. CUTE!
