What is a family photoshoot like with a 1 year old? It's basically lots of on-the-go! Once little ones start running they often don't like to stay in your arms very long and will struggle to get done. Photos at this stage are much more about "doing"... picking up things to look at like rocks, sticks, leaves or looking at the scenery... and of course doing the repetitive playful things they love, lifting them up, tickling etc.
One-year-olds are often looking everywhere but at the camera and so the photoshoot itself is all about engaging them and their interests which usually will translate into good expressions (which only last for a fraction of a second so you gotta be ready!). This photoshoot was taken on a busy weekend at Meydenbauer Bay Park in Bellevue, WA
