This handsome little fellow is Xavier. I was so happy to see him again for his two year pictures. He was a busy busy little guy (as are all two year olds in the world).
This was a bit of a miracle shoot. Poor little buddy got stung by a bee about 20 minutes into our shoot. But like a trooper, he managed his first bee sting like a champ and went on to give me many more gorgeous Xavier grins.
Little baseball lover in the making! (And that was actually an orange, not a baseball, and I was in his line of sight!)
Expecting a toddler to look into a camera, pose, and smile, is generally, an unreasonable expectation (in my humble opinion). Photographing a toddler while they do what they do – PLAY – now that is the goal of a toddler session. (In this case, Xavier did surprise us with several directed grins though so that was a bonus!)
Xavier will soon be a big brother!
Storyboards aren’t just for cake smashes you know. Very fun way to display a toddler shoot.
