What do you look for in a family photographer?
Do you want that posed studio look, where everyone is looking into the camera and “faking” a smile?
Do you want boring poses that you have to bribe your child into?
Then please, do NOT hire me, lol!
I hear it all the time before sessions. I don’t know if my kids will behave… or, you don’t know my kid, he’s crazy!
But guess what? They literally do not have to behave. That’s right! I have been a teacher for 16 years now and I am a mom of 2 boys. I think I have a pretty good idea of what makes kids tick. Usually, they don’t want to do the things we are asking them to do. So instead, I give them some fun games to play. We run around and tell jokes. How can you not smile and laugh?
All of a sudden, I see mom’s spirits lift as she realizes she does not have to bribe with ice cream after the session or yell at her kids to “look at the camera”.
Don’t worry about all that, I got it! ;)
