One of the biggest problems in children’s photography is our expectations. We (guilty as charged!) expect our curious, active toddlers to magically sit still and smile for the 30 minutes-1 hour we have them in front of a photographer. 9 times out of 10, that just isn’t going to work. That’s why these are lifestyle sessions. If you truly want to capture your 2 year old showing who they are at 2 years old, it will NOT be them sitting pretty and smiling. Guarantee. So, when Sarah mentioned how much Matthew loved his fire trucks, I knew exactly where to go – the old fire station in Waxhaw! He was happy, doing something he loves to do, and we showcased WHO he is at 2 years old!
