As a photographer I have seen parents do practically anything to get a smile out of a child for a good photo. I am a parent. I know all to well this frustration with my own children..... BUT How refreshing is it when parents "bribe" the children with books?!?! Yes! Books! Not Candy or Toys!!!! A mention of a trip to the book store and both of these kids were smiling and following instructions for photos!!! We had a great time doing these holiday photos!! What a wonderful, beautiful family!
