Minnie, Allison, and Jordan are 9-year-old triplets, and they are already Instagram influencers!

Their "perfect" page brings in the likes and comments. Snapshots are a part of their daily routine and their mom is behind the camera.

Heather Dweck says her kids' page has been so successful that they get toys and clothes delivered to them all the time. People want to see what's in, what's new, and what's going on around town.

So.... their secret for a great photo?

GOOD LIGHTING

Dweck says, "A lot of times it's about the lighting... people don't realize like they'll put their kids right in the sun, ya know, where everyone is squinting and making faces so I always look for a well lit shaded are where the light is coming in towards them instead of away from them."

ACCESSORIES

She also says the accessories can add to school uniforms, if you want to spice it up or add color. Dweck says she always brings a brush everywhere she goes too.

VISIT SCHOOL BEFORE IT STARTS

For back to school pictures, Dweck recommends going to the school ahead of time. "For one, it's crazy because the kids are getting up really early for the first time in a long time, and everyone is crabby and grumpy .. and so I took them ahead of time to the school, dressed them all up and waited for the perfect shot and took the pictures even at the school.. so it was like.. they came out perfect!"

It also prevents people from walking behind the shots, and the kids aren't distracted. But, getting that natural smile is key.. and takes some work.

MAKE KIDS SMILE

Mom says, "I joke with them, I rough them up a little bit I'll tickle them and do things like that so I get a genuine smile because that's the hardest thing, a lot of time they'll go to smile and I'm like, oh you guys look scary right now."
