I have found that there is a huge difference in taking pictures of a family with babies/toddlers and a family with just big kids. I can’t say which I like better, both have their good points. I will say that I take far fewer pictures of the family with the big kids, since it is fairly simple to get one in which everyone is looking and smiling. This family was fun to shoot, the kids were awesome and did whatever I asked them to. The hardest person to get to smile was actually dad. LOL.
