Toddler Portraits with DJ ~ Palm Springs Children Photographer

March 11, 2011

A month ago I had the great pleasure of photographing a fun, outgoing, handsome little guy. We had a amazing late morning walking around downtown Palm Springs. DJ was a blast to photograph. And SMART! There are too many 20 month olds you can tell to do something and they will actually do it. Which is why my toddler sessions usually consist of me just letting them be themselves. I follow them, focus fast, and capture beautifully natural shots. That morning we looked in windows, knocked on doors, played peek-a-boo, ran around, played with a car and a block, window shopped, and put a hot wheels cars on our heads. Sorry Jamie for showing DJ how to put toys on his head. 🙂 We had a ton of fun and got some amazing photographs.

As I put the finishing touches on Jamie portraits of her little man, it brings a smile to my face just thinking about the day. Jamie, I am so excited for you to see the final products!



In attempts to refocus DJ, I was putting this car and a block on my head and balancing it while I photographed him.  So of course I had to capture one of this smart little one doing the same thing.  He had great control of the car on his head. 🙂  Sorry again Jamie!



I love how gently he was placing the car on the block. So patient for a toddler.



Blowing kisses to his mommy!  Precious!



I hope you enjoyed a few images from this very fun toddler session!

    The best photographer I have ever worked with! She captured Dj’s attention really fast and it only took a single car!!!! He has never been more comfortable with any photographer and is always shy but Ann truly kept his attention. Not only did she get down on his level but she played with him as well. Ann is such an amazing, wonderful and talented woman whom I’ve had the pleasure to meet and have her capture my son’s joy! I loved working with Ann and she is truly an amazing photographer and person!
