I photograph families a little differently than other photographers and I’m often asked how to plan a portrait session with a toddler that shows off their personality, while still letting them be themselves.
If you have little ones we’ll organize the session around an activity. Instead of treating your kids to ice cream if they pose for portraits, let’s actually go for ice cream and I’ll photograph that. If you’d like to have a full family story session, we could also do something fun like visiting Butterfly World, bowling, heading to the museum, or playing at their favourite park.
For this family, we went to a park near their home and I let this cutie do her own thing. To get a portrait with the whole family, all I had to do was ask mom and dad to have a cuddle with her. 🙂
