Children’s Garden Portrait Photography

Getting young children to pose for pictures can be a lot like herding cats. So when parents ask me where a good spot to take picture would be, I often suggest a park near where they live. Kids like to explore and run around and sometimes that makes for some great candids… and if I play my cards right I can convince them to hold still for a few seconds to get some posed shots. I try not to “force” smiles… because we all know how those look.
