1. Opt Outside
Apart from the fact that natural lighting is best for taking high quality images (unless you use photography lights indoors), nature creates a nice back drop for images. Try to find spots with lots of surrounding greenery and you are good to go.
2. Go to A Spot That They Love
If they are comfortable in the environment they are in, they will more likely want to cooperate. After all, you want to capture them when they are happy and smiling rather than when they are grumpy. For example, playgrounds are a good place for photoshoots with your kiddos.
3. Catch them in their element
Don't force them to pose. They won't enjoy that and it doesn't really represent who they are anyway. They are kids, let them be little. As a result, you will capture many real moments of their childhood - what a treasure!

Sweet baby Marielle is turning ONE year old, which was the perfect opportunity for a mini shoot of her and her family.
What would you like to have pictures taken of? Contact me today. I would love to work with you!
My beautiful baby niece made her arrival and we couldn't be more smitten. She is perfect in every way!
Her parents and sisters just adore her.
I was fortunate enough to snap a few pics just two days after she was born.
I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do.
Welcome to the world Baby M!
My lovely sister-in-law and her husband are awaiting baby girl number 3 to join their family this month. So obviously, I had to capture the beautiful baby belly before baby girl makes her arrival. She is already so loved by her parents and her sisters. I cannot wait for her to be here!
Also can we talk about how gorgeous the light was that evening?!? All the heart eyes.
It made mom glow even more ;)
