I have been a Shropshire family photographer for almost 10 ten years.
Before that I was an office Manager for Fender Guitars (cool right)
I am a mother of 2 beautiful girls.
At this point in my life I think it’s safe to say “I understand kids”, and one thing I can guarantee, especially toddlers, they very rarely do what you want them to do. Shocking right? These adorable little people not listening what you want them to LOL! I know this can be VERY frustrating especially at a photo shoot, so let me tell you how I handle these bundles of joy who won’t cooperate.
I will never force them to do anything they don’t want to
One thing I know, is that if you force a toddler to do something they don’t want to do…. cue the meltdown. I completely respect that. Instead, I put the camera down and just chat and play with the toys in the studio, until they are curious enough to come on over.
I make the photo shoot really fun
I have lots of beautiful toys for your little one to play with. I also have really fun magic bubbles which they can catch in their hands and even on their nose! Sometimes, I even dance around like a crazy person to make them laugh.
Like I said, I have worked with kids for a long time, so please don’t worry, I get it, I am a mum too!
Remember photos are mean to capture your little one as they are now. There is no right or wrong way for them to act. I promise we will still get amazing photos.
