When They Won't Look at You

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!

    Get them moving!   

 

Get them moving!

 

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!

 

 This is what happens when I try to get all 8 of them to look at me at the same time.
