Trying to Get Kids to Smile During Family Photos at Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream Redmond

These little ones are tricky to get smiles out of but thankfully a little ice cream, some silly faces and running around on the street brought out some joy. I always find it hilarious when parents have more energy or enthusiasm than the kids. Some of my favorite behind the scenes photos/videos are when I back up and capture the parents trying to get the kids to laugh. Kids are such an amazing way to make adults crumble into goofiness. Sometimes we try everything; silly faces, silly voices, tickling, point at stuff, bribery, ignoring them completely etc.. You know how it is - not a whole lot we can do to make kids smile for the camera. Thankfully, most of the families I get to work with are cool with that fact and we all embrace the reality that the kids are gonna do whatever they want and hey...maybe smiling at the camera is over-rated. Thank you Seng family for another family photo shoot with the Happy Film Company. See you guys again soon!! :) Thank you so much Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream for hosting us!! Chamonix
