I Love Photographing Toddlers! {St. Charles Children’s Photographer}

View this post on the new blog: K Thaemert Photography Children’s Photographer

Toddlers are so much fun!  They are cute, silly, witty and they say the most adorable things.  I’ve had the great pleasure of watching this little doll grow up.  The first time I photographed her was at HER newborn session.  She and my daughter, Sarah have a very special bond and I love it when she helps me during sessions.  Many of the adorable expressions you see here are elicited from my favorite studio helper.  First, I’ll share a quick collage of a few favorites from the light purple and white backgrounds.

And here are a few more of my favorites.  (It really was difficult for me to select a “few” favorites).  As is true to tradition, her mom found adorable outfits, shoes, hair accessories and for little brother… an adorable hat!

Thanks for stopping by!  It’s so fun for me to share these favorites.  I really do love my job!  Babies are great, big people are too but toddlers really hold a special place in my heart.  I know that toddler photography is not for everyone.  I think my small stature and fun nature really helps set the tone with these little people.  My teaching background also helps us create a bond.  Bring on those 18months to 5 year olds!!!!

I’m looking forward to seeing these children grow over the next few years.  The Watch Me Grow toddler portrait plan is a great option  for little ones from 18 months through age 5.  After just two sessions you’ve more than paid for the plan.

Thank you for selecting me as your family photographer!  🙂

LOL, I have more fun in the studio with these babies!  Even boys at the young age of 9 months old love goofy noises.  I think this little man is so accustomed to having his big brother around that everything is fun.  He was busy, curious and silly the entire photo session.  I loved it!  He also sat still for us for a few minutes.  Truly a photographer’s dream.

Today I want to share a few of my favorites in the collage.  Can you just imagine his big belly laugh when you look at the center square image below?  He was wiggling in the rocking chair and interacting with us; showing his silly side.

I also want to share his mom’s favorite image from the session.  I can understand why too.  He just looks so happy and sweet all at the same time.

This baby boy is a member of the Baby’s First Year portrait plan, called Baby Steps.  He visits the studio at the ages of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months and after that 1 year visit, he and his family will receive a framed, 10×20 portrait collage with one image from each session.

Alternately, some families on the Baby Plan opt for just 3 sessions at the ages of 3 or 4 months, then 6 or 7 months and finish up with the first birthday.  Either plan is a GREAT way to celebrate baby’s first year and all the many changes that happen.  The collage is the perfect wall art for showing each milestone baby reaches during the first 12 months.

Anyone who wishes to join the Baby Steps program should call the studio before the baby is 3 months old to schedule the appointment.  Depending on your availability and our calendar, you may need up to 8 weeks to get your desired appointment day and time.   We love babies and would love to meet yours!!!

Thanks for visiting.
