Worried your sweet, shy child won’t warm up for family photos?
Put your mind at ease. As a San Diego and Carlsbad family photographer with over a decade of experience, I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve to help your little one feel comfortable.
In my many years as a Carlsbad family photographer, I’ve worked with children with a wide range of comfort levels and personalities. Most photographers (myself included) want to capture uninhibited, authentic joy and happiness in our family photo sessions, especially when it comes to our smallest clients. A lot of parents of shy children worry their child won’t warm up for photos and use their usual fall-back of the dreaded, “say cheese!” Our parents used to say it to us and now we need to break the cycle!
Over time and through lots of trial and error, I’ve developed some good strategies for getting real, happy emotions out of shy children. I’m going to share my tips and advice for photographing shy kids because we all love authentic smiles and those are the photos you are going to treasure for years to come!
