I hear it often, "I was so worried our session was a disaster. My children didn't listen and complained the entire time. I just don't know how you captured those image of them smiling."
Well, guess what? As a Birmingham, Alabama children's photographer part of my job is to capture those moments that happen so fast you probably didn't even know they happened. Case in point below of my cranky toddler who, in the span of about 15 seconds, played a happy game of peek-a-boo and had a melt down.
