Picture Perfect???

I have spent the last year trying to get really cute pictures of the kids to put on canvas. I want three canvases. One with a picture of Emma, one with a picture of Jake and one with a picture of them together. I think they would look really cute hanging up in the playroom. The problem is that I cannot get cute pictures of the children anymore. Emma is constantly turning her head away and Jake is constantly giving me a cheesy grin that does not look like himself at all. This was my latest attempt. Does anyone have some tips about getting cute, candid photos of small children?


  1. Give them each a couple Skittles at a time! Watch the magic unfold.

  2. Have someone else(even a friend would work) take the picture. My kids will not take a nice picture for me but will for someone else
