They're too little to appreciate how lucky they are but Mommy and big brother, Michael, sure know!
PS: People say our pictures are wonderful so I want to let all of you in on a secret. To get these smiley shots, we do some pretty crazy things. In the picture to the left, Daddy is simply spinning the girls around. He stops right in front of the camera so I can snap the picture. You'd be surprised how effective this is! Try it!
Another technique we've used effectively is to throw the child into the air and snap the picture as she comes down. Squeaky toys also bring a smile. As does taking off Daddy's hat and hitting him with it! <hee hee>. You can also try playing peek-a-boo around the camera and not looking through the view finder as you snap the picture. Young kids can't relate to the camera as well as they can your face. Let me know if any of these tips work for you! :)
