family photography Let them be naughty. During your session, relax and leave everything to me. Your littles don’t need to be perfectly wellbehaved. In fact, it’s better if they’re not. The photograph of them belly-laughing with sparkling eyes after they’ve just beat me in a screaming contest is probably the one you’ll love most anyway. Don’t worry about whether they’re doing the “right” thing. The more personality they show during the session, the better your images will be. You focus on loving your littles and letting them run wild and free, and I’ll make sure you look beautiful while you’re doing it. Jenn Di Spirito Photography | www.jenndispirito.com

1.Don’t rush to or from the shoot. Life gets busy, especially with kids. But don’t let the photo shoot become just another thing to check off the list. You need the space to really show the special love and relationships between mom, dad and kids. 2. Choose a fun location. A playground, amusement park or forest can serve as a great backdrop for the photographer and help the family have fun and relax, which always equals better photos. 3. Make sure everyone is fed and watered. “Hangry” kids (and parents for that matter) make for very grumpy pictures. Brendon Purdy Phtography | www.brendonpurdy.com

Allow the photographer to take control of the session. If your child knows to listen to the photographer and isn’t getting mixed messages from the parents, they will cooperate better. If you tell your child to smile, most likely you’ll be seeing an unnatural or fake smile! Just relax, enjoy the moment and don’t worry if your little ones are being a little unruly. Its natural. Let them be silly, funny and even a bit crazy. Don’t stress, this is how we get real smiles and can show their true personality in the photos!
