With new clients, most of the time, the start of your session is our first time meeting. With adults, that's no big deal, but with children that's a whole other thing. So, one of the first things I have to do is get the children used to me. You may think I'm babbling, but by chatting with you in front of them, they're learning that you accept me and think I'm ok, so then they'll realize I'm not a threat or anything to worry about.
Often times I'll also get your children to play with me, have them search for the perfect Alabama gulf coast seashell, or get them to "help" me make sure mommy and daddy look right at me for a picture. I find that getting them involved in the family portrait photography process makes them more likely to cooperate when it's time for their beach pictures.
Did you catch that? I ALWAYS try to get at least one good picture of just mom and dad.
I think, as parents, we need those pictures with our significant other!
