This Makes Me Laugh, The "in between" Moments of a Portrait Session

I'm finishing up some editing for the day and couldn't help but do another blog post. I'm working on the photos below (from a recent family portrait session on the beach) and they make me smile so I just had to share them - hoping they bring a smile to your face. For any portrait session, especially one that involves children, you just have to go with the flow. Follow what is naturally happening and don't stop taking pictures during the "in between" moments - you know those moments when everyone just needs a break - when you start getting looks from the kids other than smiles. So here are some "in between" moments that I just LOVE!!!

Trying to sit for a portrait, everyone's not on the same page, this makes me laugh, a lot, for some reason...

then, a sure bet for some smiles...tickles!

now we've moved to a game of chase...

and then about 20 minutes later - a golden moment on the beach...
