Toddlers are fun to photograph
Toddlers are new to walking. Most children learn to walk around 9 to 12 months
but some learn much earlier than others.
I think of a toddler as a child up to 2 or 3 years old.
As soon as they are able children constantly explore their environment.
Because they move around so often and fast photographing them can be exasperating.
The best photos you will get are likely to be candids. Take lots of shots.
If you wish to place a toddler in a pose, wait until all your equipment is ready,
because they probably won't stay in position very long.
Some enjoy being the center of attention, and will act up to please the photographer.
Others are very shy of strangers. They are subject to wild mood swings, so work fast.
Use interesting sounds to provoke responses. Balloons, balls, and bubbles come in handy.
The most important thing in a portrait is the expression,
so a photographer's rapport with the subject is crucial. Candid photos require great patience, lots of shots, and a certain amount of pure luck.
Having the mothers or other relatives around can be very distracting sometimes.
