  1. Great tips, especially timing it right and bringing “props”. When they can focus on that, instead of the camera, that’s good. Maybe a game of tickle monster before the shoot, to get them smiling and loosened up (makes for great photos during the tickle-fest too!). I take photos of my kids when they’re engaged in something else, like play.

  2. I have to take lots of pictures of my toddlers for my review/family blog. What works for me is interaction during the shoot. Asking questions, saying silly things and teasing will almost always bring out a smile or funny expression. I don’t even point my camera at the beginning, but just let it rest on my lap while we have fun. When my children start having fun and being relaxed, then I quietly starting pointing….and shooting!

  3. In my opinion sometimes it’s little bit hard to explain kid: ” ok now please sit down and do nitching” but… after that when kids do something suddenly that was the best shot 🙂
