my kids holiday photoshoot outtake {fort lauderdale child photographer}

I, like my clients, try to get a great photo of my children around the holidays.  As many of you know, it is not such a simple task with three children.  I plan everything, clothing, location, time, etc., let the kids know that this is important to me, remind them that they like each other, and then I cross my fingers and hope for the best.  We actually took our holiday card photo this summer while we were in Mississippi.  But, I REALLY wanted another photo of the kids for the back of the card, something a little closer up, more snuggly.  So, I bribed Jake.  I'm not proud of it, but you have to do what you have to do.  I bribed him with a McDonald's oreo mcflurry to let his sisters hug him.  Not such a terrible thing.  This is not the final image for the card, but it is definitely one my very favorites.  I snapped it right before they fell to the ground laughing.  Gotta love those kids - even if they don't like taking holiday photos.  xoxo
