what to expect…
It’s completely unfair, but my own husband hates having his picture taken so I know the pain of getting everyone on board! Take heart in knowing that my sessions are super laid back with very informal posing. And I love to get to know young kids a bit before even pulling out my camera to make sure everyone is comfortable.
We will play a lot and I’ll ask the kids questions to encourage genuine smiles and laughter. I may ask you to sing a song with them or tickle them!
The best thing you can do is show up relaxed and tell your kids that we are going to “hang out with Mrs. Morgan and she will take some pictures, too!”
I am also not above bribery so having snacks on hand is always helpful! Sometimes I like to schedule sessions close to a playground to encourage cooperation before going to play after the session is finished!
