Susan gave this advice: “As you probably know by now, my philosophy with parents and their kiddos is a whole lot of ‘not-posing’. [For moms,] always go with the SNUGGLE!”

Hugs and Kisses

This is an easy pose to do with moms and kids of all ages.  Have mom sit or stand in a flattering position, and then instruct the child to give her a big hug or kiss.

Quiet Moments

Capture quiet emotion by having mom just look down at her child.  These images are so sweet!
