5 Tips to Get Mom in the PictureLos Angeles Lifestyle Family Photographer

5 Tips to Get Mom in the Picture
A few years ago Allison Tate wrote a piece for the Huffington Post entitled "The Mom Stays in the Picture". I’m everywhere in their young lives, and yet I have very few pictures of me with them.

Planning a family photography session... Will my child cooperate?
As a family photographer I've learned that every kid is different, but all parents are the same. Okay, that's not really true, but sometimes it feels like it.

For those who aren't familiar, an adoption profile is a pamphlet that prospective adoptive parents create to introduce themselves to expectant parents consid[...]
