Who says you need to be an engagement or wedding photographer in social club to snap kissing shots? As a photographer who mainly shoots kids and families, I do kissing shots all the time! Why? Well of form they are cute, but the master reason is to break people out of their crush a bit, bring back the romance (for adults obviously), capture the sweetness…and most importantly…to accept FUN! Side by side fourth dimension yous attempt a kissing shot, I can guarantee that yous’ll see smiles immediately after the kissing.

Tips on getting not bad kissing shots:

1) For adults – I tell them to buss like i’g not there,  like they mean it, eyes closed, hands on…basically to “make out” 😉 I also tell them that if they feel weird and awkward, they are going to Expect awkward in the photos….so it’s best to act like they would if no i was around….and information technology WILL look crawly……..

If it’due south starting to look awkward or a little TOO frisky, i’ll say something like “Ohhhh yeahhhh!” which always causes laughs and smiles. Like this…….

ii) For kids – I’ll simply ask them to requite whomever (mom, dad, sister, brother) a osculation. Equally shortly as they do, i’ll allow out a big “Awwwww, you’re SO sweet!”….which in plough makes them proud and want to do information technology once more and again (which is great in instance you happened to miss the shot the start time) 😉

3) When parents are kissing and kids are watching – I unremarkably just tell the parents to kiss and so wait and see what the natural reaction is from the kids. I love the natural expressions!  If the kids aren’t paying attention at all (trust me, at on-location shoots, it’s hard to go along the attention of footling ones considering they are at a new identify and just want to explore), i’ll say something like “Oh my goodness! What are mommy and daddy doing!!??” and catch the expect on their faces.

Some look at their parents and grin and giggle, some run off (which is however a fun moment to capture), some are still hamming it up for the camera….  Some make up one’s mind to copy what mom and dad are doing by grabbing their lilliputian sister and trying to found one on her….

5) Don’t be afraid to inquire your clients to kiss. Subsequently all, they are paying YOU to take their photos for a reason.  One of my favorite lines that I hear from my clients is “We trust yous”. My clients trust me to capture moments that unremarkably wouldn’t be caught in photos (we ALL osculation and cuddle our kids at habitation….but honestly…do we snap pics of those moments? Most likely not). They trust me to make sure that those moments are existent and not overly staged or cheesy. Certain, I usually ask the adults to kiss, but bulk of the parent kissing kids shots are just moments that happen and i’m lucky plenty non to miss.

What are you waiting for? Get out at that place and start smoochfest 2010! 😉
