Photographing children can be chaos…and at the end, everyone’s exhausted. Yet in this class, instructor Dennis Craft shares how to direct that chaos as much as possible for a successful toddler session that makes everyone (not just your subject) smile.
The first thing you’ll learn is the importance of planning. Time is of the essence during the session, so learn how to nail down certain facts from a client pre-consultation—from wardrobe to props to exactly what mom is looking for in these images (and what you need from her during the shoot).
Next, you’ll watch Dennis conduct an actual session. You’ll discover how acting silly, some reverse psychology, conversation and props make or break the session! Plus, you’ll get to review the images to see what worked and why. Dennis even photographs a second toddler, showing how and why each child and session is different.
So are you ready for the chaos—and utter cuteness—that comes with photographing toddlers? With this class, your images can only improve!
