How to Catch the Raw Family Moments

Some children are energetic and outgoing and willing to let you snap photo after photo to document their personality. Other kids are the exact opposite: shy and will cling onto their parents the entire time. As a photographer, what do you do in these situations? How do you draw an uncomfortable child out of their shell?

This PhotoVision video, "Connect with Kids" with Allison Tyler Jones, shows you how to connect with reluctant children and gain their trust. Allison is an expert at identifying an uneasy child and getting them to feel more relaxed in a formal photo shoot setting. Once the child feels free to be silly, Allison noticed she would get the best, raw moments of a family. These are the moments that clients will cherish and hang in their home, so make sure you watch this PhotoVision video to learn some of Allison's tricks and tips.
