Yesterday I did a shoot for my friends daughter, Parker. At 21 months she is a wild child, and she was running around all over the place! It is always so tough to shoot little kids because of how much they move, but the results always make the hard work worth while!
Some quick tips if you ever find yourself photographing one of these little balls of energy…
– Have the parents bring a toy that the child loves to play with
– Be energetic and fun, and spare no expense to make the child laugh (even if it means hurting yourself!)
– Always have a positive attitude and remember that sometimes mistakes make the best images!
– Watch your language! Kids are super impressionable and will repeat almost everything you say if they are talking!
– Have Fun!
