As your babes get older, they get more and more difficult to photograph as they are always on the move. We asked super star photographer Robyn Davie for her top tips for photographing toddlers:
Be prepared to get moving – toddlers (when awake) are always on the move – get on your feet and follow them!
Get down on their level. Yip, on your hands and knees, as close to the ground as possible. This is super fun for close-ups, and for seeing the world from their angle.
Fill the whole frame with the little munchkin. An attention grabbing pic excludes the background, and pulls all the attention onto your baba!
Let them be kids! Smiling for the camera is lovely, but let’s see some funny faces 🙂
Capture the every day moments. Yip, a posed pic when everyone is dressed up in their Sunday best is gorgeous, but I love the tiny in-between moments – the early morning deliciousness of a just-woken-up baba, the toddler who thinks bath time is as fun as pool time, and the quiet concentration of a little one completely absorbed in a moment of play.
