Inspire: Vintage Toddler Session by Yocum Photography

You can totally tell how much thought Yocum Photography put behind this toddler session. Check out all the elements that made this such a fantastic session: the bike, clothing, pearls, and location. Be sure to read the tips she offers at the end – this particular age is not easy to photograph!

From Yocum Photography: This particular shoot I knew the ‘look’ I was going for; which for this session was a timeless almost vintage feel.  I was in constant contact with the Mom to work out wardrobe and accessories.  I am more than thrilled with the way the pictures turned out feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to photograph this precious angel!

Tips From Yocum Photography: I think if you have a vision already working in your head on what you want the outcome to look like; it will help out in the end.  Plan your sessions as much as possible, but also realize that the child is the one who runs the show!  One of the first things I do once we are on location is ‘find the light’.  I know harsh lighting will not be flattering; which is why, for the most part, I schedule my sessions late in the evening.  With children that are mobile you have to be willing to RUN if need be.  Those little buggers are quick!  Also I try to anticipate when they are going to run to and I’ll either run ahead of them or if I want a shot of them looking small in a big world type shot; I’ll position myself where I need to be.  Another thing to remember is they don’t always have to look at you; let the kids be kids and just you just be there to capture what they do best!
