So you’re a parent, and summer is here. One of your goals this season is to get some great photos of your kids. But despite the sunny weather outside, you can’t seem to capture the natural joy that was there a minute ago when the little ones were running around in the backyard. Want to photograph their grinning faces like a pro? Here’s how to get natural smiles out of children, little and big.
