4. Plan for tantrums.
If you follow me on IG, you know that #lifeishard, especially when you’re a kid. More so than with summer sessions, kids are impatient in the winter. They’re cold, it’s possible you’re also cold, and they’re likely to to be fussy about it. Bring snacks or their favorite toy to keep them comfortable and happy. I don’t recommend trying to force good behavior or smiles—some of the best shots come from letting kids be kids: walking around, (9 times out of 10) tripping and falling, picking things up, and coming to their people for comfort. These authentic moments feel less stressful for the entire family, and they look way better in photos, too.
