One of my favorite ways to get kids smiling for pictures is to let them play! Sometimes this just comes in the form of tickle fights and racing, and sometimes it is much more elaborate fun with tea sets and cupcakes.
Either way, it is about helping the kiddos have a great time so that they are happy to cooperate and you don't get the cheesy grin.
But I'll tell you a secret about this darling girl. She was actually excited to "model" before she even knew about the tea party and cupcakes. She was excited to wear her princess dress, and elated when I put these @babycatesshop
Bracelets on her! She never wanted to take them off! I think she might be needing a bracelet in every color!
So let me turn this to you. What games do you live to play with your kids? Would you ever think to do that at a photo session?
And if you have little girls, what color of Baby Cates bracelet will you be getting first!?
