1.Giggle till it's Real

I often get groups together and they get a little awkward waiting for me to click and then I tell them to giggle till it's real and that is exactly what happens! Try it...works every time.

2.Squishy like a family

It's all about the squish! Especially for wedding portraits with the extended family. They like to stand straight and look all proper and then when I get them to cuddle and get squishy like a family it brings genuine smiles and natural hugs.

3.Look left & right

After a few shots of them looking straight into camera I'll get everyone to look at each other and to 'kiss their neighbour' or 'have a little dance'. I'm all about the moments in between the poses.
