I don’t suppose any of you can relate to the child that just does not want to have his picture taken. More often than not, I come across a kid who does not like the black thing in my hand that is pointed in his/her direction. This is when you need to throw all your visions for the shoot out the window and make everyone comfortable. For me, my favorite pictures come from a family just being themselves together, nothing posed or staged. Maybe you have to give each other bunny ears, tickle, hug, swing each other around, but whatever it is, when the family (ok, the KID) is comfortable, the smiles are geniune and those are the memories worth capturing!
