Sometimes a good family photo session means capitalizing on what you’ve got. In this case, I had a very shy (and super cute) baby. Instead of focusing on the fact that I was having a little bit of a hard time getting smiles, I decided to recruit her big brother. I’ll always ask questions during the photo session. Is she normally shy? Did she skip a nap today? What do you do at home to make her laugh? Information is key. If I have a baby that is comfortable around her big brother, I’ll ask him to help me tickle her feet or give her kisses. (Huntington Beach Photographer)
Asking questions also helps with what strategies I’m going to use when everyone is in the photo. Sometimes a baby likes loud noises and silly dancing. Other babies aren’t quite sure about all that hoopla and would prefer a quite game of peek-a-boo. Again, getting the information I need and then recruiting help is my key to a great photo session.
