Nowadays it’s quite easy to get a high quality shot with the camera on your phone, and with the numerous apps out there for editing, a photo doesn’t even have to leave your mobile OS before turning into a great piece of art.
Lackey’s key to success when photographing toddlers is knowing that it’s 90 percent psychology and only 10 percent shooting. Being able to work through whatever moods the child is displaying is part of capturing authentic emotions. Those natural smiles and candid looks are what makes the portraits so great
