Random Tip of the Day: To get great expressions from the parents in a family session with a baby – Make ridiculous faces and silly noises. Continually. Even when it has stopped working on the baby.
This is what happened for me with This sweet Family. We were out in a field, Emilie was mesmerized by all the passing cars on the road and had no time for my fun and games. Eventually she’d come around and realize we were also kind of fun to look at. Meanwhile…Her parents couldn’t keep a straight face, we’ve got some great shots of them
Emilie is 7 months old now, full of playful energy, crazy faces, and wonderful smiles from those cute chubby cheeks…Its hard to believe she was under 5lbs when she was born.
