Let’s be real – scheduling family photos can be hard when juggling work, kids, marriage, a social life and everything in between. Time slips away and before you know it your youngest kiddo is 2 years old. You finally get your photos scheduled and plan your outfits (which is a challenge in itself). You show up not knowing what to expect from your littles – will we get the sour patch kids, the photogenic kids or the kids in dire need of a nap? Helpful tip: smile no matter what. Enjoy those 45 minutes…because when you do…it shows. Let the toddler run, let them cry and pout and run away at the speed of light. Let them be clingy, clumsy, silly and loud. Let them carry around their tractor and give your photographer the stink eye. This is life right now and before you know it two more years will pass and you’re going to want it back. This is the best life.
