A few weeks ago, when I came home from a trip to San Jose with YesVideo, my kids found a big orange lollipop and a blue stick of rock candy in my suitcase. AJ and Reese instantly claimed the treats, but I said that the candies were too pretty to let anyone eat them before taking pictures with them.
We’ve been busy and the candies were almost forgotten. But, really, my kids never forget candy.
Yesterday, AJ ran home from school, came right up to me and asked, “Can we take pictures of the lollipops today so that I can eat mine?!?”
Reese and AJ have never been such happy and willing photo subjects.
The moral of the story? If you ever want to get good, naturally smiling pictures of your kids, just give them a big lollipop.
Side note: Want to know something funny? When I typed that last sentence, I typed in “me” instead of “them” – as in “If you ever want to get good, naturally smiling pictures of your kids, just give ME a big lollipop.” I tell the truth, ladies.
