The boys normally don’t cooperate for photos. It might be because they are 4 year old boys or because they’ve had cameras pointed at them a lot since day 1. We take a ton of pictures of the boys, rarely do we not have a camera with us or two. Since the boys won’t always look at the camera, let alone smile we’ve resorted to bribery. It works amazingly well.
A couple weeks ago Cody set up one off camera flash and we asked the boys to pose for some photos. For individual pictures they were offered a single piece of taffy. We got at least a dozen shots of each of the boys, with smiles.
Last photo of Nicholas, so excited about the impending taffy.
After they each claimed their reward, I wanted some group shots. After much bargaining the asking price was 4 Swedish fish or ‘red gooey fish’ as the boys call them each.
With the exception of the sitting down shot, we let them pose themselves. I love how easily they stand close together or hug, I hope they stay this close.
