Sorry about the other post. I was just a little excited to win a professional photo shoot.

How do you get your child(ren) to take nice photos? My 16 month old does fine until she sees the camera, then I get tons of photos of her arm extended out trying to reach for the lens!

PS. I won't put the link in this time. " )

-I use a digital and take tons of photos.
-I try to be discreet and do it without him noticing.
-I took the lens cap off the camera, b/c that dangling was MORE of an enticement to grab.
-I try to get it aimed in the general direction and shoot with it at my waist sometimes. He seems to notice it really fast at my face. You can always crop out what you don't need!
-Did I mention I take tons of pictures?

My guy turned 2 recently and will still stop what he is doing and come for the camera ... so, I haven't really "broken" that habit yet, I just work around it!
