Family photo sessions are always fun and a great way to help document family history. The individuality of each family member adds to the family dynamics. My advice to families with young children: make sure they are well rested, have had their snacks and nap if they are really young. The children will stay still only for so long, so I have move fast. I also make sure I engage them in conversation and not just interact with the adults. It’s part of building a relationship with everyone involved. Once we’ve gotten the required shots, I give everyone a chance to do something silly. In this case, the Johnson family use their “silly” shot in their Christmas card.
