Taking photos with kids is challenging to say the least. I've had my picture taken hundreds of times for blog features, magazine articles, you name it. But taking photos with small children is 100% harder than any photo shoot I've ever done.
Whenever we attempt to take a family photo, inevitably I turn into a lunatic, trying to get both kids to smile in one direction or adjusting their clothes just when they do, in fact, smile in the same direction.
We've finally managed to get family photos that aren't a blur of limbs and grumpy faces, and these tips can help you do the same. But overall, it boils down to being as prepared as possible before the shoot and being patient and calm during. Easier said than done, but thank goodness for digital photography!
