Children's Portraits in Studio

Stuffy, cliche cookie-cutter studio childrens portrait photography isn't just dated, it's stiff and forced, and often intimidating or even frightening for the younger child. How can your childrens portraits reflect their unique personalities in a studio that uses the same artificial, plug-n-play sets for every photo shoot?
