How to Get Kids to Take Pictures

Peyton has been a fashion blogger since she was 5 months old.  She was a natural, always smiling and staying still to take photos.  Harper is the opposite.  She doesn’t care if this is a family business or not, she’s going to do her own thing.  Somehow I’ve managed to reel her in and get beautiful photos with the whole family.  Not all the photos are perfect but we end up with a few keepers. Check out my tips below on how I get them to take pictures.

Growing Up Without a Dad

I grew up without a dad or father figure.  My dad is still alive but he has been absent most of my life.  Just in the last couple of years, I’ve made an effort to pursue more of a relationship with him.  I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen him when I was younger.  Half of those times I didn’t even know he was my dad.   It’s still difficult to form a relationship because I don’t know this man.  I listened to God and he told me to keep trying.  I’ve never celebrated a Father’s Day until my husband came along because I didn’t have one to celebrate.  Thank God for blessing my girls with such and amazing dad.  Total opposite of what I had growing up.
