Toddlers are busy little people. Feet move fast, attention spans are short and tantrums are typically a heartbeat away. Capturing a busy toddler in images can be a huge challenge. Before you run off and buy a pair of Velcro pants, I have a yummy, more proven solution to share. Nothing stops a toddler in her tracks faster than an oversized, very sugary lollipop!
When I pull a lollipop out of my camera bag towards the end of a family session, smiles instantly emerge. Do grab a picture of your little one reaching up for the sugary treat in anticipation. Once the wrapper comes off, you’ll have at least five minutes to grab some fun images while your little one sits and intakes sugary goodness.
Bring along some wet wipes to clean up the sticky face and fingers, but don’t’ forget that a quick photograph of the aftermath is a must. . Little faces covered in sugar are oh-so cute.
