One of the things I hear the most when a family is looking to book newborn photos is: “I am worried my toddler won’t cooperate during the session”. And I absolutely get it. So, how to get your toddler to cooperate for your Miami newborn photos?
As a Miami Baby photographer, I know and understand how you might feel. I have been working with toddlers and babies for years and I came up with a few tips to help you prepare and go through your newborn session smoothly.
Look at this dreamy, gorgeous newborn session. Mom is absolutely obsessed with these perfect memories of her family and her little girls. We followed all these tips and got the most precious gift a family can ever get. Keep scrolling to read the tips!
First of all, I absolutely LOVE toddlers. They’re so funny and adorable. And I want to freeze these precious moments for my families. Even though the session is focused on your newborn baby, I also want to capture that sibling bond, your babies together, as well as your family together. Your newborn baby will mostly be sleeping throughout the session (if you follow my newborn tips here!). Your toddler might be excited, shy, not wanting to be close to the baby, or not wanting to listen. This is normal and it can happen. However, if we make the session look like a fun game, they’ll likely want to participate! If your toddler is big enough to understand, you can promise them a nice treat afterwards! An ice cream treat, go to the beach, or do their favorite things!
I always want to make it fun for your toddler, because toddlers like to play. You don’t have to coach your toddler, or teach them to say “cheese”. Moreover, you might not really like their “cheese” smile (I won’t blame you!). We want real, genuine smiles! For that, I’ll create games, make you play with them, tickle them, snuggle with them. We will also give them some space while I focus on taking your newborn’s baby portraits. It will be a fun and beautiful experience for the whole family!
