Do you have a 2 year old?
Then you know how this goes. Yes, they are all TERRIBLE when it comes to pictures.
Unless they are in a superawesometastic mood, just put the baby down and back away.
I’ve gone through three 2 year olds of my own and have photographed hundreds of them.
The trick is to make it fun for them. Everything has to be a game…don’t try to tell them what to do.
You might get away with that for the first 2 minutes and 18 seconds of the photo session, but they are going to rebel at some point.
They will also tune you out if you are constantly trying to get them to laugh.
So, please don’t hate me when I suggest you take a break from coaxing her into cooperating.
Sometimes the best thing you can do with a two year old is just ignore her for a few minutes.
Once you accept that the 2 year old is in charge and just go with the flow,
I will be right there to capture the magic.
