The little boy just got his two lower front teeth and was happy to show my assistant and I his smile almost every time we asked.
The short period of time when a baby is able to sit up on their own and when they learn how to walk is a great time to photograph because you are able to hold their attention longer. Even though I certainly don't mind running around after children it's always nice when I can focus my attention on facial expressions and small details.
I was able to use various backgrounds and different vantage points while photographing this little one.
I also make a point to get the family involved in the photographs of the baby. The mother was not expecting to have her picture taken but I insisted and they turned out beautiful.
We ended up getting a TON of photographs of this little energizer baby and after 2 1/2 hours of shooting I had to call it quits. I really think he could have gone on but I was exhausted! Even though it turned out to be a long shoot with many background changes it was so much fun. They got a lot of photos to choose from and I got a lot of wonderful samples. He was great to work with--such a cutie!
