Milestones are so much fun, and one thing I have learned photographing little kids in the last three and half years is that the age of one looks so different on each kid.
Pediatricians set milestones for us about a child’s development… can he sit? Can she walk? Can he talk? Can he hold an object? As a photographer, I play a bit of this guessing game every time I photograph a kiddo under the age of two.
Little June was no exception with this! She had just started to walk a bit on her own when I photographed her right before her first birthday… so we played a lot of games trying to figure out what she wanted to do for us: sit on the ground, sit on a stool, stand, stand assisted. You get the gist.
Even though there’s so much variety with what they can do mobility wise at this age, one thing has been consistent: they do not like to sit still for long. June was no exception. She was also extremely curious about her environment, and I even saw a bit of her stubbornness, which I think is a trait in all little kids. I wouldn’t have been able to get as many smiles without her mom’s patience and willingness to experiment with my endless list of prompts and ideas. She sure made me work, but I was able to deliver a great gallery!
