Probably one of the hardest things to do at a family shoot. Is make children laugh. As a photographer you can force out jokes back to back, and not one smile. However, the best thing about family shoots. Is the family itself. The family are the foundation to the structure. The child feels safe, and accustomed to their presence. You will notice that the best help one can get at a photo shoot is primarily from the parents. Below you will find photos taken at a local park here in South Florida. I believe the best moments were taken when the family was sitting down. The reason I believe this. Is because when we stand. We are more tense to our surroundings. Once the family sat down. The family became relaxed as a whole.
