I was pulling all of my tricks out of the bag for a recent maternity photoshoot at the studio a couple of weeks ago.
Ming wanted to have a maternity session (with 2 weeks to go before her due date) and also include her husband and two sons, aged 4 and 6. Anyone who has boys of that age will know what a handful they can be; forget about getting them to sit or stand still for more than 5 seconds. Fortunately I’ve come up with a few ways of not only keeping them still but also getting them laughing or smiling at the camera. One of which includes a toy mouse….
With some great family shots in the bag I could concentrate on some classical shots of Ming and her bump, while dad looked after the kids.
