Miss Riley is one of my "regular" clients. I started documenting her life with her Baptism into the Catholic Church and now we have a yearly date to create portraits for her.
Her parents apologized during our session: "Sorry she is so active!" That is not needing any apology - a toddler is always active and that just means the photographer has to be quick on her feet . . . or knees as the case might be. Using a strobe in a studio setting helped by serving to "freeze" her in action. Still, when working with a young child, their emotions and expressions change and shift in seconds, literally. But I would rather have that - as a mom, I see it as a sign of an active mind.
They don't stay young. Gotta catch them when you can before time changes everything.
