Have fun with the pictures too, depending on their age they may be slightly uncooperative, which actually makes for hilarious outtakes! And picture the memories a complete set from kindergarten to grade 12 will make. I imagine it will be pretty funny, especially through their awkward pre-teen years.
I generally would not recommend bribing children or using reverse psychology, but it's sometimes necessary...and totally worked in this case. My adorable little niece who was so excited to take pictures decided last minute she wanted nothing to do with the whole situation and tried hiding in her dress. After I realized pleading with her was making it worse, I simply stopped trying and told her it was fine. I told her I would get my other niece to come over and do the pictures and that she could have her candy too. Boy did she come around fast!
