As a photographer, working with babies and toddlers is a complete joy! The little ones are inquisitive, spunky and often full of soulful expressions. Take Austin, for instance, the latest kiddo who was behind my camera. He is 9 months of sweetness; beautiful eyes, long lashes, lips for days, and an adorable head of hair!
His nine month session was truly laid back. I selected a location that has warm, golden light to best flatter the subject. I also utilized one of my newest props – a wooden bucket. It adds a certain rustic element that works well with the environment. It is important to always embrace the spirit of the kiddo, as each child has their own dynamic. Austin was quite curious and sweet!
Here are some of my favorite images from his session. I am looking forward to seeing him again at his 12 month cake smash – it’ll be worth the wait!
A few of my favorite details are the warmth in this image; Austin is meant to be the focal point and the creamy, compressed background showcases him. The sun acts as a spot light on him!
His expressions are precious! I love how he let me place him the bucket. Sometimes kiddos like this and sometimes they don't. No worries! Safety and his happiness is the number one priority so we go with the flow to ensure a smooth session and enjoyable experience for little ones.
Peek-a-boo! Oh, Austin! I adore you! This is an example of an image I'd recommend for a large canvas on your wall. Swoon swoon!
For this part of the session, we moved over to the bridge. His little toes are so sweet here - one of my favorite details!
I always try to involve Mom if I can. I am keeping the rest of the Mommy and Son photos under wraps but here is a little preview. A quick outfit change for Austin was in order; Mom brought so many adorable options, so we had fun dressing him, haha!
