"How do you get your kids to take such good pics?"

I get asked often how I manage to get my kids to cooperate for pictures. The reality is, it takes a LOT of "outtakes" to get a few good ones! I just tend to not share the not-so-cute ones. A lot of the times when I am trying to get group shots of the kids, I seriously work up a sweat because it's stressful!


Example below...



When I post the photos everyone thinks he is all like... this...






When in reality, half of the time he was like... THIS...



I may or may not have bribed him to smile for me with a lolly pop... *whistles innocently*

Seriously, I love this post. I still have a hard time getting my oldest to look like the after and not the before. He pretty much looks like the second pic on his driver's permit, his school ID, every family photo EVER... It's like the camera hurts when it steals his soul or something. ;)
