With the holidays approaching and stress levels rising, I know that my photo shoot has to be fun. So many parents worry how their children will react during a photo session. Will they cooperate, scream, cry, or pull someone’s hair?
Lucky for me, the Pellerini Family was the complete opposite. As they approached me with big smiles on their faces, I knew our shoot was going to be a success. Dana, a local lifestyle blogger was so great. She even color coordinated everything and helped get the boys ready to smile. Yep, I said boys; seven and eleven. Getting girls to smile is like baking a cake but with boys, it takes a little extra frosting.
Boys want to be understood, so I took out my knowledge I stored way back in my brain about sports and video games. They loved it! Two smiling boys having fun at a holiday photo shoot is like winning the lottery. These two boys were the sweetest little men. Of course, I had to be careful on my poses because I knew they wouldn’t want to do any gushy, heart wrenching moves like hold hands and blow kisses.
An hour with the Pellerini family was tons of fun and I will always treasure the time I had with them. The tip to a successful photo shoot is to have everyone smiling so much you can see all of their teeth.
