Photographing one-year-olds is so much different than photographing little babies.
Most one-year-olds only have one thing in mind, and that is moving! Moving and pictures don't always mix, but trying to get a mover to sit still is not the ideal answer (unless you want pictures of very grumpy babies).
Go with it. Pick a location where the child has room to move and go to town. Take opportunities to catch them when they are resting, and still shoot some moving shots to capture the moment.
Some of the perks of this approach include more natural smiles, and a low stress environment.
We had an opportunity to photograph this adorable one-year-old this past weekend.
