In our tests, most children kept their attention on the movie during the photo shoots, which is especially helpful when taking group portraits with multiple children. However, it’s important to make sure that you don’t play a boring movie….try something noisy and flashy. Some children just don’t like to watch movies. I haven’t met many of them, but they do exist. If you’re concerned, try playing a movie for your kid on your mobile device prior to making the purchase, to see how they respond.
