Every family has moments when their child is more interested in toys, or leaves/rocks/somewhat alive animal, than they are in smiling at the camera... and that's okay. Everyone deals with that at one time or another. The trick is involving them in the "play" of the photo session -- and that's exactly what we did with this family.
Looking at the images, you wouldn't know the kids were not really into getting their photos done -- but throw in my amazing assistant, and being verrrry quick with the camera -- and voila! Picture magic!
