That being said! My sister-in-law Kelsey asked me to snap some pictures of her family, and I happily obliged.
Scarlett was done there at the end, hence the sippy cup. Better than a screaming baby, right? Too bad that was the best photo of the day.
Things I learned from photographing two kids at once:
1) Bring Jon to entertain them. He's an expert.
2) Go to your favorite location first. Kids have a surprisingly low tolerance for the fine art of photography.
3) Bribe with a treat other than gum. I thought we could promise Norah a stick after the photoshoot, but then she fell off a picnic table and started making demands through her tears.
4) Three year olds are no good at chewing gum discreetly.
(Still, things turned out much better than that time Corinne asked me to take pictures of THEIR family........)
