My secret trick to photographing …..

It’s not easy being the child of a photographer. The camera is always out and the “perfect light”!!! Standing in the perfect light is just oh so difficult for kids, right! LOL

Thankfully, I have a secret weapon that takes my pictures from “cheeeeeese” to pure joyful smile.

 

This first image here is was one of the first pictures taken at the pumpkin patch.

MY thinking was, “let’s take pictures real quick and then go play” I mean, that is logical right????? Nope! Taking pictures was the last thing she wanted to do….

 

At that point, I adjusted my expectations and put the camera down.  After playing and enjoying the festivities, we went back to attempting the photographs I wanted to take.

Still… she was not thrilled with taking pictures. Insert my secret weapon…

DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup! If you have even done a session with us, you know just how amazing this man is with kids!

 

With him over my shoulder making silliness WHILE directing her eye to the camera, I was able to capture the smile that makes my heart skip a beat. Yes, Danny is my secret weapon for ALL kids pictures.

If I could, I would duplicate Danny and make him into a pocket sized take along so that everyone could experience the joy of taking their kids pictures.

Together he and I get to create magical moments for our family and yours. It’s truly a blessing from God to be able to do this.

 

Cheesy smiles, silly smiles, or the perfect smile… just remember to create moments that matter.
