|If you have family members who are camera shy you'll have to get the shots you want in other ways. Sometimes It's good to be sneaky, my Grandmother and Lily were sitting together on Christmas day having a good time. I came in the room and sat down when I saw that they were having fun I took there picture when I saw them both laugh. I took it quick so that my grandmother wouldn't notice. It was like trying to take a picture of a wild animal. Don't move to fast so you don't startle them. It is a good thing that my camera, the Nikon D90 can take many pictures at one time. Sometimes It works out to be sneaky with the ones who get a little uncomfortable when having there pictures taken.|
|I was taking some pictures of my friends three kids at a playground one day and I was so impressed with how good the older girls were with getting there little brother to pose for pictures. There was a giant Playground Set there that the kids loved playing on. I had seen a cool little space under the slide that looked like a good spot for a picture. I had asked the girls if I could get a picture of the three of them there. They said, "of course" and then they convinced there little brother to play peek a boo from behind the wood. I waited till the right moments to get him as he popped his head up. Those two girls really helped me that day and I was thankful for that. You could ask others to help you, they could distract someone who isn't posing for you.|
I had my friend Dena and her kids over for a photo shoot one day. She is a great mother and her kids were a delight to work with. I made sure to catch the candid moments like when she would rest her head on her sons and when they would give her a kiss. They all looked so happy together that day. Most times I take pictures of the spontaneous special moments.
