I did two photo sessions with one year olds at the Botanical Gardens today, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Both one year olds had recently started to walk, which meant I did a lot of running around, trying to keep ahead of them as them tumbled forwards. Both pairs of parents put in an impressive effort to make their baby smile. The guarantee method to make the boy smile was to toss him - I'm surprised I managed to catch him in mid air. The girl occupied herself with the picking of flowers, of which there was an endless supply. She had great dexterity for someone so little.

I preferred morning light to afternoon. The light even at 11am, was softer than light at 3pm. Afternoon light made the shadows in shade pictures particularly blue. I'm still working on ridding of that cool hue.
