Some times your little one is just not going to be into the family portrait session. We all worked with little Jackson to make sure he felt comfortable and was well entertained. Kids at a young age can find that a portrait session is very strange and scary. It is a new person with a big object making a lot of funny noises. So I would always suggest, make sure they are well rested, dressed comfortably and have a few of there favorite objects in sight or to hold. I am always very patient to work with the little ones and do what I can to help them enjoy the experience.
