Photographing toddlers can be tough! They love to run, play and scowl at cameras. But as the mother of a toddler I adore this age and all the silly things they do. When photographing a toddler, I try to capture their curiosity. I love to do something I call a Toddler Play Session, where I choose an outdoor location and let them loose. Then I simply follow them around and capture them checking out and engaging the environment - sticks, flowers, rocks and stumps. Every now and then I might yell out 'look a bird' or 'did you see that bug', just to build a little excitement and try to get a smile.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from recent Toddler Play Sessions.
