I love it when the parents of the families I'm photographing are as relaxed as possible, and just allow their children to be themselves, in a fun playful way. Life with little kids is chaos, and often unpredictable. Photo sessions with little ones is the same, if not more so when the parents are anxious and worried about their children's behavior.
The ONLY thing I have found that reduces the tension and stress is if the children are allowed to have fun, and move around. This is why I love outdoor sessions so much. Children have room to roam and be free from constraints. They are willing to smile for a few if they can run and move for the other ones. If the experience is fun and joyful they will show you their genuine smiles, and isn't that what you want?
