Tip #3 Bring a loved one with you
Bring a trusted loved one with you to your photo session. This may be a grandparent, a beloved aunt or uncle, or even a family friend. When families bring a friend with them to the session, that person can serve as an extra set of hands when one of the kids needs to take a 5-10 minute mental health break, or if one of the parents is absent from the session. That friend can also help wrangle all the kids together and get them excited for their photos. I personally love it whenever families bring a friend with them because I always use them to stand either beside me or behind me to help get the attention of the younger kids. If you are a single parent, ask for help. There is no shame in needing help with your little ones!
