I had so much fun with this sweet family during their session in a beautiful meadow. It started with, “HI RESA!!!!” as the little guys jumped out of the car and ran to me. I mean, how could it not be amazing. He had never met me but was so excited to make a new friend and let me capture his sweet face.
This left shot is one of my favorite to get of young children. To capture this shot, have the child lay down. Step over them (so their body is between your feet). And shoot. If the child is little, it’s easy to gently use the sides of your feet to hold them from rolling over.
It’s so hard to get toddler to stay in one spot or even near one spot for family photo sessions. I always pack some vintage toys for shoots like this. It keeps them busy and interested, and well they still run away, but not the whole time.
The end of a session is sometimes my favorite. Everyone is done trying to pose, and either tired or relaxed. These sweet moments will be cherished I am sure.
