Hello Everyone, I haven't posted in awhile, been busy moving and starting my business. Anyway I need some help, I was just on a photo shoot yesterday. It was of a family, consisting of 2 young boys around 5 and 7 years old. And one precious little girl that is 2 years old. Now I've done a couple of family sessions and to me child photography is one of the toughest kind of photography. The parents just wanted some great family portraits and some of the kids together, they really didn't want any individual shots. The problem was that the two boys were really WILD! I mean they were running around and when I tried to get them to hang out together they just didn't stay still or they would make crazy faces. Mom and Dad were trying to get them to calm down and but they wouldn't listen. I felt like a deer in headlights and I just couldn't think of anything to do to get great shots. Keep in mind this portrait is for a Holiday Card. I tried to have fun with them and do crazy stuff in hope that maybe after some fun we could get a decent family shot, but it would fail. You could tell the children just didn't care what the parents said. So what could have I done? I just didn't think the older children would be this bad if I had to make a guess I was more worried about the little girl but she was great!!
