When preparing to photograph a family with young children, it's important to bear in mind the short attention span of the kids (especially if they are very young). Distracting techniques are essential and will make the shoot much more enjoyable for everyone.
The images will be amazing as well when the kids are relaxed and even laughing!!
The young girl (pictured below) was old enough not to become too bored but making a photoshoot fun with props really helped her enjoy the session. They both thoroughly enjoyed it! it was a pleasure doing this shoot for that reason!
