Mom + Toddler in Home Maternity - Maternity Session - Moss and Myrrh Photography Anchorage, AK
There's nothing I love more than photographing my clients in their environment, completely comfortable in their "space".
I also really enjoy photographing the "fussy toddler". Dead Serious. It takes some time to get clients comfortable in front of the camera and comfortable with me, but a toddler puts it all out there and let's me know exactly what they're thinking. Children, especially toddlers, are us in our rawest form, the "real" us, the ones who don't hold back, and I love photographing that. This guy wanted nothing but to take my camera from me. There was a lot of mean mugging, screaming, and door slamming, but in the end I won.
Parents, don't apologize for your children. This is who they are and there's nothing wrong with that. I want these real emotions and reactions. I want you to look back on your pictures years from now and crave for that crazy toddler. This is just a small glimpse into your life, but these little "in between" moments are the ones you'll want to remember forever. The way their legs rest on your waist while you carry them on your hip, the way they grasp your hair and cling to your neck, how soft their hair is going intertwined in your fingers, the way they sit on top of your swollen belly oh so perfectly.
This is everything you'll want to remember.
