"Remember to include the location in your composition," said Gerulat. "New photographers often zoom in tight to only see the child's face and miss the beautiful environment they visited."

"Is your child being grumpy? If you can't switch the frown to a smile, capture it anyway," said Gerulat. "You'll laugh about it later."

"If your child will not smile, try having them "race" or run towards you," said Gerulat.  "Jumping up and down sometimes works, too."

"Remember that not every family photo needs to be smiling at the camera," said Nicole Hill Gerulat, commercial kids photographer and owner of Nicole's Classes. "Capturing your child's explorations will preserve beautiful memories."
