I dont know about anyone else, but I have nearly completed photographing 150 children and their consecutive groups for their families at a childcare centre!!! I never knew how much work I was getting myself into - never done much pro work before with childcare centres.

I know what you mean. I do a few nurseries and Mother & Toddler groups in the run up to Christmas. Taking the photos is no problem, it's all the admin that causes the headache. When you've got orders for 60/70 families landing on your desk in one go it can be quite daunting.

Hope it all goes OK.

I'll let you field all the calls from parents wondering when their pictures will be ready - they normally start the day after the shoot.....

yes - hard work alright. Especially when u have a regular day job. Trying to get all those kids smiling at the camera for the group shot is a pain!

No worries, use music as well. We have the Mac loaded with High School musical soundtrack etc. It distracts them and they often know the songs. Try postman pat, power rangers etc songs It may drive you nuts but happier kids = better photos = more sales
