This was one of my favorite fall family sessions- I love these crazy boys, so much personality! Every year I enjoy playing with them so much. These photoshoots are super quick because those little ones just do not have the patience to wander around a small area for too long. We do some playing in between, and then when I put this group together, I fire off as many as I can and then we go back to playing. It is super important to keep the kids from feeling overly controlled or like they are performing a chore.
One of the best things to do with a fussy one year old is toss them in the air. If you are smiling at them and playing with them, 99% of the time, they can’t help but smile back. And even if it’s only for a split second, I will catch that second! And I will set us up for success over and over again.
