|working with your kids|

There is no "cheese" at sessions with me! Don't get me wrong, I love cheese... of the edible variety! I have so many images of my own children where I have the "say cheese" smiles-- you know the ones I mean! That smile with clenched teeth, squinty eyes (perhaps with a slight eye roll visible if your child is dramatic like my 9 year old!) and stiff body language. I will do whatever it takes to get the big, sparkley-eyed smiles you see in your children during the most magical moments of the day. I love nothing more than capturing a huge belly laugh or the big grin of a child that only shows up when they let loose and light up from the inside out :)
I will work at your child's level and pace, and with older children I may occasionally work one-on-one away from the pressures of performing for mom and dad. You should always be nearby, even focusing on another task in the same room as your child may remove the focus on them enough to get the unguarded grins we're looking for :)
Remember, a well-rested child is a happy child. Plenty of sleep the night before and considering naptime when scheduling your session time is always appreciated!
If your child is not feeling well, I am happy to reschedule.
