Getting the kids to look at the camera while I take their picture is such a challenge. I try to think of new ways to get their attention. I have called their names, told them to look at mama and even used toys. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes I get these looks:
Most of the time I try to incorporate myself into their line of sight and take a shot where I know they would be looking at me:
However, the littest is the hardest to photo. She refuses to cooperate no matter what I do. So I usually get side views of her. However, this shot in particular stood out to me cause I love that you can see the camp fire reflecting from her eyes.
If anyone has any tricks of the trade to get them to look at me, please feel free to share!
