A Children Photographer's Dream...Howell, MI Children's Photographer, Brighton MI Children's Photographer, Detroit, MI Photographer,

I'm pretty sure that if you're a Children's Photographer and you have children...you probably dream of being able to take amazing pictures of your kids. When I pull out the camera, I pull out the bribes too...and 99% of the time that doesn't even work. The bribes started out small like "If you let Mommy take some really great pictures of you then I'll give you this sucker when we're all done!" and they've quickly changed to my daughter's bribing me "Mommy, I'll let you take some pictures only if we can go to Disney World!" As you can see, they've caught on which makes my job as a Mother and Photographer very, very, difficult. Lucky for me...all it took today was for me to allow my sweet 3yrd old to take her tiny, plastic ducky family outside in her little brown purse. Normally, I don't allow the duckies to leave the house because they belong to a game and I'm too scared the pieces will get lost. But today...I could make that tiny exception. She was thrilled and so was I. It was a win, win for both of us. When I snapped this shot...she was talking to her little duckies. I heard her say something like "Hey little duckies are you okay sweetie pies, are you cold in there little guys...awwwww it's okay little guys, it's okay, we're almost done babies, we're almost done!" Gosh I love her! Now if only my 5 1/2 yr old would settle for something a little less extravagant than another trip to Disney World.

Ohhh this one is just perfection and I love that you told the story with it. It's so true, the bribery factor. Usually my sessions with my kids end with yelling and possibly cursing, hahaha. Seriously, though, why do they make it so hard for us?
