Tip 10: Shoot Multiples
Shoot multiples with changes in expression. These never disappoint me. With little ones, I might ask them to show me what they look like when they're happy, when they're sad, when they're scared, when they're surprised, etc. They love this game and I think the resulting images look great framed as a series.

Tip 11: Shoot Funny Faces

Or shoot multiples with each person giving you their best funny face.


  1. Thank you so much for this series! I just got a new camera for my birthday and have two little ones that I love to shoot!


Ooh,a comment! How delightful.
