As a family photographer and mom, I’m not above bribery (treats)…
I am a mama to 4 kids. Yes….4! And I absolutely love living in the sweet chaos and laughter that comes with having a big family.
I actually believe in family photos so much (especially, and most importantly) for kids to have them as memories when they grow up that I even find myself photographing separated and/or divorced spouses with their kids and even step-parent families with all the parents.
Not only do I have a lot of my own kids, working with families is such a beautiful gift that has taught me how much happy kids affect the overall look and feel of a family photo session. When kids are joyful, dancing, playing, and taking consistent breaks (the best time to use those bribery treats), your images will feel more authentic and full of love.
And don’t worry, I always make sure we get plenty of traditional, posed images with smiling faces 🙂 For our kids photos however, because I know my kids are a little on the wild side…these 4 kids just make me happy if all of their faces are facing the same general direction! haha!
So now, onto my list of bribery treats that you will LOVE to have up your sleeve!
