I am often asked which age group of kids do I enjoy photographing the most and I honestly enjoy all she groups!
Newborns are a lot of work but that’s what makes them special. You get into a session, not really knowing how it will turn out! The session is comparatively longer than toddler or family sessions because you have to include feeding and changing breaks but it’s so rewarding 🙂
Toddlers are a lot of fun too, they have a personality of their own and have tons of energy so it’s always interesting to see how the shoot turns out given its such a challenge to make them follow instructions! 🙂 Saying it from experience since I’m a mom of a toddler 😀
And then there are older kids like in these pictures! They will mostly do whatever you ask them to do but it’s always better to create a connection with them. In this case, the brothers were busy playing with each other while their parents stepped off for a costume change. I just sat around and observed what they were doing. Then I just started having a conversation with them as they played and we were soon playing our own game with the leaves and sticks around. And just as I was doing this, I kept clicking as well, getting some great sibling shots 😀
