Moms, we have all been there. You start planning your family photography session with so much excitement. And then it hits you. Will my children behave? What if they have a meltdown or refuse to smile? Do I need to bribe them? What should I tell them before the session? Preparing kids for family photos doesn’t have to be hard. As a San Diego family photographer with over 10 years of experience and six kids of my own, I’ve got you covered!

Here are five simple ways to get your children prepared to have some fun during your family photography session.
