Simple props make for fun variety in your¬†two year portrait sessions ¬† Here, a lollipop is used ¬†for a couple reasons. ¬†One, is that lollipops photograph well.¬†They are bright and colorful and add some flair to the photos. ¬†Next, they can be used as a bribe. ¬†Two year olds don‚Äôt always want their picture taken. ¬†Giving them some extra incentive helps to make to experience more fun and exciting for them! ¬†Some other fun food props could include: ice cream cones, marshmallows, watermelon, colorful cupcakes, strawberries¬†or¬†apples. ¬†While food props are fun and make a unique twist on your¬†two year portrait session, you should make sure to include them ¬†near the end of the session because they just might cause a little mess!
Two year portrait sessions might make you feel a little anxious. ¬†You probably already know that your toddler has a mind of their own and might not listen during the session. ¬†Remember to just relax! Your two year old is just that- TWO! They will most likely run around, explore, make all kind of expressions that are not smiles. ¬†But guess what? ¬†That is what twill make the two year old portrait so cute and memorable. ¬†Just sit back and let your two year old be two!
To have a successful two year portrait session make sure to choose your location carefully. ¬†This session was taken in a very small neighborhood wash. ¬†there was some room from him the sun around in, but not so much room where he could easily escape! It was a familiar area to him. ¬†The session was taken later in the evening when the light is ideal. ¬†Two year olds may not always sit and pose where the photographer thinks the light is beat, and they will probably move quite a bit. ¬†Shooting your session when the light is always nice will give you lots of flexibility!
