That's what you get with me behind the camera... and here's what you might hear me say during a quick shoot:
Okay, you guys, look at me and we'll try to get done real fast.
Whoops! The baby doesn't have shoes on... we'll just roll with it.
Okay, everyone look at me and smile please.
Say: Papi's stinky.
Everyone look at Mami. Okay, say: Papi wears diapers.
No, Cruz, we're not talking about your diapers.
That got a good smile, let's say that again. Cruz, look at me. *Blows raspberry*
Alright, no more blowing raspberries... and Eliana, please don't take off your shoes right now.
Okay, we're not going to pout about the shoes right now. One more time, say: Papi has a stinky diaper!

Not exactly professional, and certainly not respectful... but at least I've got a few smiles with it. What are your favorite tricks for getting the kids to look.... er, somewhat normal when taking pictures? I. Need. Help.
