So, how on Earth can you cope with their disobedience and shoot quality pics that will appeal to the parents? Check some tips that I use when work with children.

Kids are the most sincere and ingenious creatures in the world. This is their major minus and plus at the same time when it comes to photography. Everybody feels uncomfortable in the very beginning of the session, but while adults can collect their thought together and give a strained chuckle, kids won’t hide their feelings.
