Family Posts Son's Professional T-Rex Photoshoot And It's One For The Ages

Anyone who's ever posed for a family photo with children knows it can be an exhausting process, but families with an autistic child face an even tougher challenge. Sitting still and posing for any extended period of time can be hard for these kids, and so getting the perfect shot can prove difficult. Samantha Bishop, 26, may have found the perfect solution with her eight-year-old, Levi, however: play a little dress-up! Read More..

This is actually a good process for photographing ANY child unless said child is a complete ham and loves posing. I know little about girls since I had none of my own, but boys are generally skeptical of and constitutionally indisposed for posing. They instead make ugly faces and sounds, run away, put their hands in front of their faces, or if the issue is pressed, simply scowl or become mannequins. I have had much better success allowing them to play, and my odds improve greatly when I ask them to decide on the set up, which often involves costumes, props, display of certain toys or sports equipment. None of my stuff is as elaborate as hers, and most of mine are just casual snaps but I think the same principles apply.
