SNACKS (aka bribery)!!!
at your family shoot......
I always recommend that you bring snacks to your family photo shoot. Sometimes a little snack break is all it takes to focus a child for just 5 more minutes.
I do however recommend that snacks aren't messy, or take ages to eat.
My go toooooos are:
Yoghurt raisins (nice sweet treat)
Pre cut apple
Veg stick crisps
You get the idea :)
Here is an example of a not so good snack.....orange carrot puffs make a mess and stain mouths!!! I'm sure, like me, you always have a wet wipe to hand!!!
And this little basket was handy for hiding snacks in too which I will try and bring to all shoots from now on so at least I can still get some photos during 'snack time'. Snacks/treats can also be used as bribery to get you to the end. For example, plan an ice cream or Mcdonalds stop after your shoot if they do well.
