I start the session by asking, is your baby serious? One year olds can be all business. They have a whole world to learn! And if I try to get too silly, it will just back fire and scare them. But, if I ease into things, the smiles will come at the end of the session.
This particular session started out with the baby just checking me out. She was curious about me and the big black camera. But, before long, she forgot she was at a photo session and her mom and dad were able to get her laughing and smiling.
That’s the beauty of reading people (and babies). If you ask questions and be accommodating, everything goes your way!
