Posing Tips for Toddlers
When I first started photographing people, posing was a big stumbling block for me. I really had no idea what I was doing and I tried all sorts of awkward poses with my subjects that make me smile now (at that point it was mostly my children—thank goodness.)
What I have learned since then is that the most important thing I can do as a photographer is to help those that I photograph to feel comfortable in front of the camera and give them great feedback and encouragement as we photograph together. That same principle applies in different ways to everyone—from toddlers to teens.
Today, we are sharing the FIRST in a series of Posing Tip sheets with tips for photographing different ages and groups. These tip sheets aren’t meant tell you exactly how to have your subjects stand or turn or tilt their head every time you click the shutter. They ARE meant to help you know how to best work and interact with your subjects and how to get the most out of your session together.
In Posing Tips for Toddlers you’ll find 4 tips for posing and photographing toddlers—including some of my favorite ways to get genuine expressions while having fun at the same time.
I hope you find them helpful!
