from about 9 months to 4 years
The most important thing in a portrait is the expression,
so a photographer's rapport with the subject is crucial.
Children learn to walk around 9 to 12 months and are constantly exploring their environment.
If you wish to place them in a pose, wait until all your equipment is ready,
because they probably will not stay in position very long.
Some enjoy being the center of attention, and will act up to please the photographer.
Others are very shy of strangers. They are subject to wild mood swings, so work fast.
Use interesting sounds to provoke responses. Balloons, balls, and bubbles come in handy.
require great patience, lots of shots, and a certain amount of pure luck.
Having the mothers or other relatives around can be very distracting sometimes.
