Have you heard the expression “cobbler’s children have no shoes” well that’s how I feel when it comes to photographs of my own kids. For some reason “mommy behind the lens” doesn’t work for them. They act nutty and make the weirdest smiles. My MIL really wanted a picture of the kids for her Easter card this year, so I prepared myself for battle. It took about half and hour and lots of bribing (and threating) I was able to get A shot, that’s right ONE. It’s amazing to me that I can have sessions with families and children and get great images, but it’s like pulling teeth with my own kids.
