I'm not going to lie. In pretty much every family photoshoot I've ever had there's been a moment where one (if not all) of the children involved give up and lose interest in what's going on. I try to reassure the parents, who look naturally concerned when their children are frowning at me and my… Continue reading Top tips for a painless family photo shoot
