I found a way to get the kids to rake the leaves in the yard. It might not work on all kids, but if you have a teenage daughter that enjoys having her picture taken, you might be in luck.
Here is how it went for me. I looked out the window and said “Hey, if you go out there and rake those leaves in a big pile, I could take some cool pictures of you in them.”
Lindsey looked at me and said “Really!” to which I replied “sure.”
Here is the proof, Lindsey hard at work raking the yard. I’m a super genius (insert evil laugh here).
