Photographing A Toddler At Home
Photographing a toddler at home can be tricky, especially if you don’t know the basics of photography or where to put them in your house to get decent lighting, but honestly, once you get main just of it, you can create yourself some really beautiful photographs and memories to cherish for the rest of your life.
Photographing a Toddler at Home
My main advice would be to find a window. Natural light is your best friend when shooting photographs. Always make sure the little model is facing the window too. If you want silhouettes of your babe, then place their back to the window and shoot away, but if you’re wanting to capture all those little features that are soon to develop even more, then you want to be facing toward the window and snapping away.
A window can also provide you with some cute reflections too, which make for extra cute photographs of your little one. Natural light is so soft and flattering on anyone, if you have a conservatory, that may also be a great place to get some photographs, you won’t get as many shadows in your images as you would if you were shooting in front of a window, but you would get beautifully lit, easy to edit – if you even were planning on editing – images to work with.
These images were taken with my Canon 6D before it died a death on a walk around a park, but you can easily get these results using a smartphone.
Please do not take any of these images without first seeking permission from the Photographer.
