Toddler Group Photo Shoot at First Steps Parent & Toddler Group
I was appointed by the First Steps Parent & Toddler Group based at Cornerstone Christian Centre in Evenwood near Bishop Auckland for their annual baby & toddler portraits.
There were 15 different children on the day and we had lots of different characters. Some children loved the camera and liked to perform, other children were happy to just play with the toys whilst I snapped away, and some children weren’t too keen on the experience, but with my patience I achieved portraits of all the children.
I have plenty of props for child portraits such as low-level stools, rocking horse, building blocks, soft toys and for babies I have baskets, soft blankets and support cushions.
I use a service similar to schools, where each person gets their own unique QR code which I take a photo of at the start of each different child. This allows the service to track and assign only the photos of that child to the QR code and a unique password given to the child’s parent, and avoids the situation of another child’s images being seen by another parent. The parent can log on to my website, enter the unique password and see only their child’s images. They can then order a broad array of photos, canvases, acrylic blocks and fridge magnets among other products.
Some people say never work with animals or children, but it was a great morning and I had plenty fun working with the parents and children to create that perfect portrait they can treasure forever.
The First Steps Parent & Toddler Group is on every Friday 9.30am until 11.00am at Cornerstone Christian Centre, Swan Street, Evenwood, County Durham DL14 9RN
