The best way to pose toddlers and kids for portraits....

The best way to pose toddlers and little kids for portraits....don't. I do enjoy the posed shots but more times than not my favorite portraits come from telling the kids "okay we are done, have fun playing". I try to keep distance and let them have fun! L posed for some beautiful portraits, but I believe her true smile came through while she was having fun with her brothers and friends. The same held true with her very sweet, but very shy brother. He did want to pose at all.... I caught this after all of the excitement was over and he was sharing a piece of his mom's pie at the kitchen counter. The left over pie is visible in the before. A little photoshop magic used to remove the crumbs, but no photoshop used on his eyes! He has gorgeous eyes! and from the sandbox...

This theory has held true in other sessions as well. This little L  did not want her picture taken at all! On of my favorites was captured after she sat down by herself and was given a little cookie. She calmed down, I kept my distance. She enjoyed her cookie but still had the most adorable little pout. Another one of my favorites...from the slide! I have so many favorites! They all have such wonderful personalities! If we have fun, they will have fun and they will shine! This is one of the main reason's why I refuse to put time limits on sessions. It is their world we are just living in it. So let's have fun and Tips on posing newborn portraits, maternity photographs, high school senior portraits, engagement photographs, and wedding photographs coming soon.
