People often ask to see the amazing photos they think I have of my children lovingly gazing at my camera. The truth is, gasp, 99% of the time I can't get them to look at my camera. They know all of my tricks! Instead of giving up, I sought to find creative ways of capturing who they are without trying to focus on their facial expressions. I thought I would share I few to encourage those who face the same dilemma!
Ask them to jump, dance, twirl!
Ask them to do a favorite activity or a special one they don't get to do very often like jumping on the bed or holding the iPad.
I try to find some way to tell their story especially when they aren't looking!
