Don't photograph food when kids are home!

I felt really guilty yesterday. My wife just came back from the grocery store with all kinds of fresh fruits and I immediately thought about making some nice stock photos. However, my 3-year old daughter and 5-year old son had their own ideas of what fruits are for. So I had to say "NO!" and even raise my voice a little. So kids said I'm a "Bad Boy" and made sad faces and started crying and...well, you know...I just couldn't resist. So I had to act fast before they ate it all and was able to make about 10 photos before all fruits were gone.

Now I'm asking those of you who don't have an access to studio work at home - how do you guys deal with issues like this? Please post your stories in comments.

I would leave them in the car until the kids were in bed. Then they can have fruit for breakfast.

I wait until I have the entire home to myself :) They're few and far between at times, but I can get a LOT done that way! And no one asking when I'll be finished. :)
