This kid! Jeez, huh? Sooooo cute! We were taking family portraits and my clients wanted some toddler photos of their 2 year old son, Evan.
Instead of trying to pose a 2 year old, I just let him be a kid and run around, play with sticks, had the parents talk to him once in a while, but mostly he just got into his own little toddler world and I was there with my long lens to capture these precious images.
Notice the simple yet effective style I work with available light, just have the sun behind Evan to add that dimension on his hair and along the edges of his body. Having the sun behind also helps toddlers and anyone in front of the camera to not squint.
