1. DO NOT tell them to smile.
This is what you will get.
2. Get in close
You do not need to have every shot from head to toe. Get in close and capture those big, sparkly eyes.
3. Let them be themselves
The photos that you will cherish the most are when you capture the moments when they look just like their cute, adorable selves. So don’t over direct them. All I did in this image was asked my daughter to stand with her teddy on her hip and sing for me. She loves singing. And this is probably my all time favourite photo of her.
