When this family came to me, they said they hadn’t had newborn photos of their little girl. They wanted a session to really show her off, as well as their family and love for each other. What a sweetie she was! She would smile sweetly at the camera, and was entranced by everything around her. She especially loved throwing the grass and watching some people fly kites.
For sessions like this, I let the child lead. We followed her around where she wanted to go, and mom and dad played and interacted with her just like they normally would. Their love shows through without any uncomfortable posing or pressure on the little girl to stay still and smile. Toddlers want to explore and play, so I let them have fun- and when the toddler is having fun everyone else has fun too!
