Anthony’s mom entered in my contest for a free session and WON! She actually won a few months ago but wanted to defer to now because cute little Anthony turns two this month and she wanted to use it for pictures of him. And can you blame her… he is so cute. We had such a good time. He is all boy and reminded me of my own boys. He was shy at first and didn’t want to smile or pose, which means I then switch tactics and we play. I got most of these pictures by throwing a plastic pumpkin at him. Then he’d throw it at me and hit, and we all know that can male a 2 year old laugh for hours. That’s the key to a successful photo shoot with a toddler…Play. Because that is what we want to capture, the child smiling a genuine smile. Another success at Volkening Farm in Schaumburg.
